xawtv / mplayer -flip

I stuck my webcam to the ceiling
Is there a way to make xawtv flip the image from the camera, like the -flip flag in mplayer? Or is there a way to make mplayer fetch the video input from the camera? I tried mplayer -vo xv -flip -tv on:device=/dev/video
but all i get is a green screen, i guess i need to specify input for -tv flag but i dunno which one.
Any clues? (i have a feeling that acid_kewpie will send me to read the docs again, and he is right... but at least tell me if mplayer can grab webcam input)
Thanks in advance
