Tried googling, didn't work. So, I'm using ubuntu 13.04. My webcam is an integrated ASUS. And I don't really know what I'm doing. If there is some software that would allow me to, like flip my video (Like many cam for ubuntu) or some command that I could use that would just intercept the data from my webcam and flip it then I'd love you.
