When I use the built-in camera with different software, the picture is upside-down.
Is there a settings or the camera is not well built ?

I have the same problem with my G1S. I have just rebuilt it totally with Win XPP.

I would appreciate if you can share with me whatever you find on this issue.

Many thanks.

well, this is kind of cheezy, but, it was the driver. i rolled back to the original from 5-06 and it seems to be fine now. that is except for the program crashing from time to time. thats the same with either driver, at least for me it is. good luck!

The real problem is that webcam often is mounted upside down.
It is a driver job to reverse the image, so if you have this kind of problem it means there is something from with the webcam driver!!
If you have Windows Vista you can download the last driver from asus.com.
I know with winXP there could be some problem.
If you use linux, I suggest to follow this HOW-TO:

Run the camera through the Windows Explorer.
Your camera built-in will apear upside down, right?
Inside the folder with the drivers provided by ASUS there´s a software called tsnp2std.exe.
With your camera opened, run this application; you will notice a small icon in tray area; right click on it and now choose the option: Open Property Page.

Well, now you should not have problem to setup and adjust the settings.

Yo,

I've got a other solutions for fixing the problem with the built-in cam.
Hopefully it will help;

After I installed Vista Ultimate (fresh install)
I used Camera_DM_CR_Vista32_070313 (the latest driver from asus.com) for my ASUS F3Ja.
so got the problem that the image was up-side-down in Lifeframe 2.

Solution:
-go to the zip/map with the drivers (the Camera_DM_CR_Vista32_070313 map/zip)
  and open Videoview.
- then go to options => video Capture Filter.
- there is the option to flip the image.
- after that it the image in Lifeframe 2 will also be corrected!

Greetz,
Sjorspion

I have the same problem with an N50v.
I resolved it by editing the snp2uvc.inf file.
Open it with notepad and search for the word "flip".
You'll see entries like this...
"HKR,DefaultSettings,Flip,0x00010001,0 - and - HKR,Settings,Flip,0x00010001,0".
Change the last digit (zero) to a "1" to all instances.
Save the file and re-install your drivers manually from Device Manager.
Choose the driver to install, do not let Windows search for you.
Reboot and your video will be in the correct orientation.

I have  a M70V model with a built in web cam that worked well in the beginning. Soon after getting the laptop I installed Vista Ultimate, and I believe it was an update that messed up my webcam. Initially it was all fine, after the early annoying and never ending updates my web cam image was upside down. Solution indicated above did not apply since the last digit was already "1". Software settings did not give me the option to flip the image and other suggestions in this forum I could not apply (i.e. I did not find the files reffered to). My solution that fixed the upside down image was simpler:I rolled back the driver (ChiconyVista64). The web cam driver reverted to a Microsoft Imaging device (I guess a generic) driver and image is now right.
Hope this works for others

After lots of hours searching for driver to fix my upside down Asus X53Ka built in camera (D-MAX, PID-5A35) on my Windows Vista 64bit platform, and having no success, i finnally found universal solution, which should work on any laptop having same problem, so i hope everybody who has the same problem can use this tip.

The work around is to use virtual camera - there are some of them, but i like ManyCam most - as it is free, does not add any unnecessary ads on video, does rotating (180 degree), flipping (vflip , hflip just fine) and works well with both skype, Gtalk and all other programs, when you choose manycam camera.
Website for ManyCam: http://www.manycam.com/ .
