How to rotate Zoom Video manually

During the zoom desktop client we recommend you rotate the camera in your settings until the camera is displayed correctly. If your camera is upside-down or sideways, you can rotate it in your settings until it is displayed correctly. It can also be useful in the case of attaching the camera to the bottom edge of your display. Therefore, you will need to either flip or tilt the camera 180 degrees.

To make sure that your video is working properly before the meeting, you can test it beforehand. For more information, please see this article.
