I recently went to view a YouTube video, and all the writing (credits, title, and even the film makers logo) were all backwards/mirrored !

The video itself and the voices were perfectly normal.

Have I taken too many hay fever meds this week? tongue-out

Anti copyright was my thought too, but others in the series are all normal.

I compared this mirrored video with another version and now see that the whole thing is reversed, viz. words and the action itself foot-in-mouth

Vlc effects settings would also fix that little problem.
