Using QuickTime 10 as a mirror
Authored by: mclbruce on Dec 01, '10 08:29:16AM

You can use iChat for the mirror effect. Click on a video icon or select Video Preview from the Video menu.

For me, using Quicktime gives me a reversed image from iChat, not an actual mirror effect.

I'm running OS X 10.6.5.

need iGlasses for the true mirror effect

Huh, I really didn't even notice the not-a-mirror part. I was just amazed to have a full-screen view. The iChat and Photo Booth methods give you a tiny window. I had cut myself shaving and didn't realize how badly till at work. I wanted to see without walking down the hall to a bathroom. The full-screen view allowed that.

Wasn't there a way to flip the output of the iSight horizontally? ah yes, iGlasses. For $10 you can truly have a full-screen iSight mirror.

"The iChat and Photo Booth methods give you a tiny window."

In 10.6 on my machine the iChat video preview window is resizeable. It almost gets to full screen. My Photo Booth window is not resizeable.

"Wasn't there a way to flip the output of the iSight horizontally? ah yes, iGlasses. For $10..."

I used and liked iGlasses for quite a while. It has a lot of fun effects. I don't have it installed now, but yes, that should allow flipping of the image in QuickTime.
