Question

Use laptop as document camera

My school has a tv instead of a projector. We use airtame to mirror the computer screen to the tv. I have an hp pro book which goes into tablet mode. I would like to use the camera on the laptop to project as I write down notes or do examples. The problem is the writing shows backwards. There's only a front facing camera and there are no settings to change the mirror image. Document cameras are expensive and unnecessary if I can just get the image to show correctly. Any suggestions? Or is there a cheaper alternative to a document camera?

Hp probook

I have an hp probook with only a front camera. The tv is a vizio. I cant use my phone because airtame for android only projects documents from drive, it doesn't do screencast.

Is not mirroring the view. Your fix looks to be to use other webcams.
