Does anyone know of some any free software that can flip and rotate a bog standard webcam. the supplied software won't let me do this.

You don't say which your "bog standard webcam" you have - but most basic webcams have an Image Orientation section under Webcam Settings (Advanced) which is supported by Windows. Many people don't realise they have it.

The webcam is a generic HP starter Cam.
I have not been able to find any orientation settings.

Are you saveing the image first? If so use paint to flip the image

I don't want to save the image at all, I want to flip the live feed.

Turn the camera upside - down, if you don't already have it that way ...

If you are using it for web chat then Skype advanced settings may well allow you to flip and rotate it.
