Summary

The Collaborate Ultra web camera video preview window in the lower left hand corner shows as being mirrored or reversed, which can make it difficult to monitor writing being shown via a camera feed. This article will show users how to use the Share Content > Share Camera feature to see the writing correctly.

Workaround

Instead of using the regular Web Camera feed for your document, you can now Share your camera in place of the whiteboard.
  • Click on the purple Open Collaborate Panel in the lower left hand corner
  • Click on the Share Content tab 
  • Select to Share Camera 
  • Select the camera to share and click Share Camera.
Your camera view on the whiteboard will be readable using the Share Camera feature.
