Thus, holding meetings, sessions, classes completely online is a necessity that can not be avoided.
Among many online meeting applications, where teachers, counselors can hold their classes, Zoom cloud meeting is one of the remarkable platforms to conduct digital mass gatherings.
But one issue has recently been tossed in various online groups. That is how to disable mirroring of videos in zoom while conducting classes.
Let me explain it properly……
When you are conducting a class using zoom with the help of the front camera of your Android phone or laptop, the video turns out to be laterally inverted, exhibiting left side to be right side and vice-versa.
It creates a hell of a lot of problems for those who prefer to teach or write on a board using a front camera. Though the issue doesn’t appear with the back camera.
Now, there is a very simple solution to the issue. You just have to disable the mirroring video option from the application settings.
Here in this article, we will show you how to do that both on Android phones and laptops.
#1: Disable Mirroring of Video on Android
Step 1. Download the application from the play store and install it accurately.
Step 2. Sign in with either Google, Facebook account.
Step 3. Once you are logged in, you will come across an operating screen, where you can see options to start a new meeting, join a meeting, schedule, share a screen.
Step 4. Tap the “gear icon/ Settings” at the bottom right corner of the screen.
Step 5. In the Settings page, tap on the “Meetings” tab which will showcase the panel containing all the controls for holding meetings.
Step 6. Scroll down the meeting control panel until you find the “Mirror my Video” option.
Step 7. Tap on it to toggle off the option.
NOTE: You can enable it back if needed as per your choice.
Now try to start a meeting with your front camera, and check if it shows a laterally inverted screen or the usual screen.
You will find it fully working. No-fuss of mirrored video anymore.
#2: Disable Mirroring of Video on Laptop
Step 1. Download the application from the zoom official website for you may not find it in the Microsoft store.
Step 2. Install it and then run it with admin privileges if possible. It will work otherwise also.
Step 3. Now when the main app interface opens, the options are very much similar to that what you had seen in your phone screen.
Step 3. Here also, just click on the “settings” icon (gear-shaped icon) from the top right corner of the screen.
Step 4. Next, select the “Video” tab from the left side panel.
Step 5. On the right side, look out for the “Mirror my video” checkbox under the “My Video” option.
Step 6. Uncheck the option and your video will not be mirrored anymore.
Users may face the same issue with other cloud meeting applications. The procedure to amend the problem is very much the same. Just look for the option or a checkbox to disable the MIRRORING VIDEO option somewhere within the setting panel.
