English term or phrase: the video flipped horizontally
It is about a DVD game called Dragons Lair. The context is as follows:
All of the scenes from the original game are included in this DVD-Video version including the "mirrored" scene that play back with the video flipped horizontally. Unlike the original arcade and due to the limitations of the DVD-Video specifications, the DVD-Video will always play the rooms in a preset order.

French translation:"l'image retournée (horizontalement) sur elle-même"
Explanation:
Since they talk about a "mirror" playback, I assume that the video is played again, with the same scene, but that the image is turned around as if seen in a mirror. In this case, it could be translated as above.

Or course, it could also mean that the image is flipped upside down or sideways, but I tend to interpret it as above.
