The Contour is made to record a vid that's "right side up" if you hold it upright. If you want to mount it sideways (as I have done on the top of my helmet) you have to set the angle to either 90 or 270 depending on whether it's sitting on its left or right side. Just rotate the lens assembly on the front.
The second post, as pointed out, is not related to your question but it is a good suggestion. I've got mine mounted a little too high so I don't see the top of my helmet, and it's actually not as interesting. If you're using the goggle strap, angle the camera slightly down rather than straight ahead.
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
