My background and slide content appear flipped in Zoom/Meet

By default, most video conferencing tools horizontally flip your video feed to make it feel more like the mirror in your bathroom. This flipped image is then broadcast to your audience in the correct orientation. In mmhmm, your image is not flipped and your audience will see things in the orientation you see in mmhmm, even if it appears flipped in Zoom/Meet.

 

Turning off mirroring in Zoom

If you don't want to see yourself mirrored in Zoom, Zoom has a setting to turn off mirroring in your video preferences. Navigate to 'Settings' > 'Video' > and unselect 'Mirror my video'.

Can I turn off mirroring in Google Meet?

Unfortunately, Google does not have a built-in option to un-mirror content in your feed. However, rest assured that your audience can see the content in the correct orientation, and consider reading from the slides in mmhmm if the mirrored text is proving difficult to follow.
