Why is my own video reversed?

Some people ask us why their own image is reversed, and worry that other people will not be able to see text on a whiteboard etc. This is something done to make the video meeting experience more comfortable, like looking in a mirror (e.g. when you raise your right hand, it goes up on the left side of the screen.) This is also the same experience when you take selfies with your iPhone.  

Other people in the conversation will see you correctly as well as your background, e.g. if you show some text on a paper, they will be able to see it correctly. 

If you are making a video podcast or recording the conversation, and need the picture reversed, you can use a tool like http://www.ecamm.com/mac/iglasses/
