    How Do I Change Webcam Orientation


    Hi,


    I'm running Windows 10 Pro. I am installing USB webcam and have intentionally mounted it upside down. The camera did not come with it's own software. Is there a way to change orientation through a Windows setting, regedit, or otherwise? Thank you.

    :)
