The camera output of my built in camera (Facetime HD, built in on Macbook Pro 2014) is mirrored. In the Vurofia Configuration I tried to flip the camera horizontally (under Webcam --> Flip Horizontally) and I also tried enabling "Mirror Video Background". Both configurations didn't change the output. It's weird, since the Facetime HD camera is in fact detected by Vuforia.

What would be a good workaround? I tried to flip the x-coordinates on all UV's on the camera render target in runtime, but this didn't have any effect.

I would like to know if I can fix it somehow

It depends on what is the cause of the cam not working. It was working fine and suddenly stopped? Probably the soft just bugged and a restart would fix it. If it is a new macbook, I'd just return it for a new one, to avoid any troubles that may come with it. If I still didn't help you, or you didn't understand what I told you, here is an article that explains what to do when your camera doesn't work
