[Xperia X] videochat with android apps: camera rotated and of bad quality

Videochat with alien dalvik does not work properly: the front camera is rotated 90° and of bad quality (on top of the image is a green-ish "ribbon". That behaviour is reproducible with various Android apps: I've tried WhatsApp, Skype, Skype Lite, Viber and even Opera with WebRTC.

Attached is the screenshot from my PC, the rotated image is from Xperia, it stays rotated 90° no matter the device's rotation: example from WebRTC chat
