Zoom Web SDK - self video appears mirrored


It looks like the self appearance is mirrored in the web sdk. This has been a long standing issue and a big pain point for the users.

Can we change it?


Hi, @utsav,

Thank you for posting in the Developer Forum. Are you able to provide a screenshot of the behavior you are seeing and the steps to reproduce it ?

Looking forward to your response.


Hi @donte.S !
These are the steps :

  1. Login to a zoom meeting on the web SDK
  2. Raise your right hand (your opposite hand appears raised in the video)

If you can prioritise it in your roadmap, would be very very helpful. A lot of queries are coming up around this not just from developers - but more than that, users are also finding it confusing to see themselves mirrored on the screen. Please help !

Hey @utsav ,

Thanks for your feedback, we will work on a setting for this in the Web SDK. :slight_smile:

In the meantime you can use this work around:
