How to Flip Your Camera in Gamecaster

calendar1 Last Updated

Many streamers have complained that their cameras don’t show them correctly. They feel disoriented when looking into the camera because they are used to looking into mirrors or smartphones which give a mirrored image. In this article, I will guide you through the steps on how to flip your camera in Gamecaster.

How to Flip Your Camera in Gamecaster

  1. Step 1

    Launch Gamecaster.

  2. Step 2

    Make sure that your camera is added by clicking the camera icon in the lower left-hand corner.

  3. Step 3

    Your webcam should now be flipped. Note that the lettering on my shirt is mirrored. The same will happen for everything on your screen. 

Is the Mirrored Display the “Correct” Display?

Stream yourself in the way that you feel most comfortable. If you frequently look at yourself on stream and react better if it is a mirrored version, broadcast yourself in that way. Take note, however, that if someone were sitting across from you, they would see the “unflipped” or “unmirrored” version of you. 

If you choose to flip your camera into a mirrored position, take care to not wear shirts with writing on it or hold up anything with writing on stream. The letters will be displayed backward, which could potentially annoy a few viewers.
