How to flip video in webcam on Skype etc. apps??

One thing I find slightly irritating about iSight is that it shows a mirror image of you - whether it be pics or videos. It thus applies to all Mac apps that use this built-in webcam.

It is annoying because when chatting over, say, Skype, it will always show the flipped image, i.e. if I raise my left hand it will appear as though I raised my right hand etc.

Can anything be done about this?? (I've come across iGlasses, but is there any alternatives, esp. free ones??)

Seems rather strange, but Manycam may well do it.

Thanks! So what do I have to do if I want to have my video flipped in Skype?
