Camera sideways...cant be rotated
Camera shows video sideways... Why does it not rotate according to the orientation of the tablet?
As some comments here stated, there is a known issue where your image will rotate 90 degrees with using the non-Chromium version of Edge, typically experienced on a tablet device. We are investigating solutions.
In the meantime, some things you can try:
1) Install and use Teams for Desktop – https://products.office.com/microsoft-teams/download-app
2) Install and use the new Chromium Edge -
3) Lock rotation on your device.
4) Go to Windows Settings – Display – Display orientation – select “landscape” if not already selected. If it is, switch to something else, then revert.
I’m hoping one of these solves the issue for you for now, while we continue to investigate a fix on the Teams side. Feel free to comment with what works for you, or that you’re still having the problem.

FYI - in 2021, April this is still an issue - Zoom and webex have controls to flip webcam 90 / 180 Teams apparently does not.. ??
I had the problem, because I have a multiple display setup and the main display has the "Landscape (flipped)" orientation. The TEAMS-App sets the same orientation of the main display for of the webcam as the default one. By choosing an alternative main display with a normal "Landscape" orientation solved my problem. Nevertheless the poor implementation of the App is a shame.
I've experienced this for months. Use the app and my picture is upside down. Zoom worked, but my contact prefers Teams.
We have a few users experiencing this fault in Teams, yet Zoom works perfectly on the same device, please fix this major bug.
Unbelievable, how can Teams not support such basic functionality? The ability to change the orientation of the camera is surely a fundamental control for a video conferencing solution. My wife is a teacher and needs to have a camera pointing down at paper that she writes on to show students how to write letters and words, so not only does the camera need to be able to rotate, it also needs to show a mirror image, and Zoom can manage this quit easily. How can Zoom, with a market cap. Of 114.06B be beating Microsoft, with a market cap. Of 1.74T so badly, it’s not like you haven’t got the resources to invest. Why don’t you just buy them and ruin another great product, Skype, Winternals, Visio. Come on Microsoft, give your customers what they want.
It's so bloody embarassing that the biggest manufacturer of operating systems in the world can't get a simple issue sorted out. You should all be ashamed of yourselves and start firing dimwit programmers from your team.
Almost a year ago and still an issue. Hate that our work switched from Zoom to Teams - it's a soul-sucking experience. :/
I am upside down on my laptop and have sound but mic is not pickingme up, so con not be heard at other side..
I have uninstalled and reintalled everyhting 5 times.
Have also followed your comments here. My display is alsreay on landscape.
Zoom works perfectly!!
Don't know what is going on with the sound.
I didnt fixed the problem. the view is on flipflop
type settings in windows search bar ,
go to settings then
make sure orientation is on LANDSCAPE
on my laptop it shows landscape, but i had to change it to portrait, then change it back to landscape and it worked.
Does not work for my setup.
Please fix the basics like rotation and respecting non-exclusive microphone access rather than adding more and more features.

how to rotate the camera on microsoft team
Please make camera rotation in steps of 90 degrees like Zoom. The "Help guide" doesn't solve my problem.
did not help at all
Using Teams for Desktop. I need to rotate camera image 180 degrees. One of your many competitors Zoom provides option to rotate camera image at 90 degree steps. It works very well. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115005859366-Manually-Rotate-Camera
Please contact Zoom and find out how they have added camera rotate feature and then add to Teams for Desktop. Thank you.

Add rotation simple fix, microsoft software bahhhh
Please add a video rotation setting. It would be a very clean solution. Thanks.
Considering the need of this option :
Rather than explaining how to do without rotation ... when do you plan to implement a "camera rotation" menu in Teams setting ?
that is not how you get to my camera setting! The browsers are not the problem either. I have used web ex, and zoom without any problems. the app is faulty. GET IT FIXED! I blew a job interview because of this problem. My interviewer did not want to interview me because of the video was sideways and told me to reschedule and fix the problem. Like I can afford to purchase another device! My laptop is fine.
