"If I move towards the left, I move to my right on the screen."

That is not being horizontal reversed (or mirrored) that is exactly as it should be, imagine your head sitting at the place of the webcam, and then you moving left, then to the viewer, you would seem to be moving right. This is a normal
thing with camera's. It is a camera, not a mirror.

In Dutch on television the presenter often says: "To my right you see ..., so that
is to the left for the viewers at home."

Oh, okay... In OS X it acts like a mirror, so I though that was the normal (this is my first computer with a webcam).
