Webcam in Skype left-right reversed

Hi everyone, I am new to Linux

I just tried to run skype with webcam module:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype
here I load the webcam module so that video chat can be enabled in Skype.

the picture is OK except that it is reversed: left to right and right to left

in other applications like cheese webcam booth and amsn, the picture is correct...(and in cheese, I don't even need to load the webcam module)

wondering why
