Tutorial – How to Fix Backward Text in Facebook Live Videos
Here is the easy way to turn Facebook Live videos horizontally so that people can read the words in your videos. Before you tap that pretty blue “Go Live” button, make sure you flip your video first. This will keep you from awkwardly pausing and tapping buttons during your live vid.
- Magic Wand Icon – The very first thing you need to do is tap the magic wand icon on the top-left of your screen.
- Tools Icon – Next, click on the “tools icon” located on the right edge of the screen.
- Horizontal Flip – Now just click “Horizontal Flip” and you’ll immediately see the screen switch and show all of your words and text the way that it should look! Yay! No more backward text, no more apologizing, and no more awkward moments in your facebook videos (well, hopefully not..heh)!
- Close Tools – Now just click the X in the top-left of your screen to close the tools.
- Go Live! – NOW you can click that shiny blue Go Live button and start your video with a perfectly flipped Facebook Live video. You did it!
