Can and will anyone please tell me (and others experiencing the same problems) why some videos on DailyMotion.com and YouTube.com appear as if viewing through a mirror (in other words, a reversed image)?
Also, some videos on these aforementioned websites have the additional problem of displaying a bottom and top image of the same view, as if viewing in a mirror and from above.
Are these videos with the aforementioned problems being deliberately uploaded (by their respective channel managers) in these manners for some particular reason(s)? Or is it the case the web hosts themselves--DailyMotion.com and YouTube.com--are distorting the videos for some reason(s)?
In a similar vein, why do some videos on these free video-sharing websites have noticeably faster audio?
Are these a-v distortions possibly being done to avoid liability suits from the original producers of programming?

Well some example links might help us to understand what you write.
Pirated content on yt. Whatever next ?
But I have seen various effects. Not the ones the OP describes. Such as imges cropped to a different AR. A movie viewed on a screen with a person looking at it. Just two that come to mind.
All of which makes it pretty pointless to upload except for uploaders being paid for clicks. In that respect yt are as guilty as the uploader.
A common tactic for Korean variety shows is to put the actual show in a corner of the screen with a large border filling the rest of the screen. *SIGH*
It's particularly irritating when "fans" of Asian groups/singers immediately (sometimes within minutes of release) post their own (often distorted) versions of music videos, taking away from the views of the actual release.

It is easier at this point to provide examples of videos with that mirror image problem. But I have also seen (and heard) many videos with faster-than-normal audio on YouTube as well, in the past several years.
So I think you may have hit the nail right on the head, "DB83," that is all about the numbers of clicks an uploader receives on these public video-sharing websites.
I have also never understood why some uploaders are asked to remove their videos of rights-protected content while others are allowed to keep their equally in-violation content available on YouTube. Is it just a matter of plain dumb luck? Or are some other factors at play into content removal from sites such as DailyMotion and YouTube?
I was having the exact same problem, and made this simple plugin for Firefox that enables you to flip the video horizontally or vertically via a right-click option anywhere on the page.
