opencv's c-api is deprecated since 2010, and no more maintained. YOU MUST NOT USE IT.

you'll HAVE TO use c++ (cv::VideoCapture), and functions like cv::flip or cv::rotate

OMG. The problem now is I maintain somebody code wrote before and enhance it. Not enough time for me to re-write the whole project. Any similar project or code can share to me as reference? Tahnsk a lot

clearly, either abandon it and look for an alternative, or rewrite it from scratch.

Any similar project or code can share to me as reference ?

can you be a bit more specific about your requirements ?

I'm using a logitech web cam to do real time object detection in Ubuntu 16.04. I wish to rotate the output of the video on the screen.
