peter, #17, you said the rotated file is much bigger and you can't send it on. try recreating the file in a different format. for instance, i made it into an avi file and it is three times smaller than the original size. the trouble with that is windows media player will not be able to open the avi file. my little media player vlc plays the avi file easily. and it looks as great 3 times smaller in kb size.

I didn't like it. I tried 3 times to edit a video of my kid. It sped her up. I'll take it because I can't do anything with it, but I would not want to use this on something more important. Give em a C-.

To rotate a video I use - always free- VLC player. VLC allows you to rotate a video not only at 90 degrees, but at any angle you wish. You can also save the rotated video.

Here is one of the youtube tutorials showing how to do it:

P.S. Please allow me on this occasion to say "Big Thank You" to Karl for his hard work and for providing us, daily, with very helpful insights into the software offered on this site.
Your effort is much appreciated, Karl.

Someone sent me a video that she filmed sideways so this comes at a perfect time. Thanks, GAOTD

i really love this little program. it is so quick, simple, and easy. it rotates in various ways. one can also change the format of their video to various options. again, so simply and easily. i did a number of little test runs. the negatives are that it is a fixed screen, you can't make it bigger or smaller (it is pretty small already). the second negative is that it doesn't give the length (in time) like my other program does. however...those two negatives don't override the fact that i love this little program, am excited about it, and will definitely keep it.

I just cannot see the point of paying for such software. Windows Movie Maker rotates videos fine.

I receive videos from mobile phones that when played on my pc are on the side (90 degrees from vertical) They are normally 1.5 meg in size. When I run it thru the program it puts it up the right way but the size goes to 16meg which is too big to attach to an email. So while I can watch it the right way up I can not send it on.

This is just what I needed to correct an old phone video that was taken sideways. This program installed and registered in a flash. Thumbs up and thanks to GAOTD and the publisher!

#5,dadams, asked why would we want to rotate a video: when i transferred my videos from iphone to xp pc, everything was right side up as it should be. for some reason when i moved to win 7 my iphone videos were all laying on their side. this was very very frustrating and i was scouring the web for a 'movie rotating app'. i didn't want to do anything else, i just wanted the videos rotated so i could see what i had!

It looks like a previous giveaway by GOTD on 2 June 2013.
I have that installed and used it to rotate a few videos.
It works very well.

You may be wondering why or when you need to do this.
When you use a small compact camera turned 90 degrees to take videos.

Your video output will be lopsided. You need to rotate the video when you view it on the PC monitor.

It is only one part of a video converter with which you could do more than rotate. The free alternate link free program
http://codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_mega.htm
There are so many things you could do with the player. You could rotate without any loss of video and sound, you could increase, decrease, width etc in pan and scans menu in the View main menu. It is only one option of the video converter. Not interested.

Downloaded and installed with no problem on Windows XP Service Pack Three. Followed the instructions and it mirrored a video horizontally, but only a few seconds of it. The program informed me then that I had to register the software before I could convert the entire video. After viewing the few seconds it had worked on for me, I saw it was not for me. I have no use for it at all, but it did do what it said it would do and the text file in the zip folder gives you your registration number if you like that sort of thing. No problem uninstalling it.

I have been working on some HD videos made with a digital SLR and found my ideal video rotator that allows free rotation by angle and over variable time frames, so if the camera operator rotates the camera over a 10 second period from landscape to portrait view and I ccan add a rotate effect that covers the transition and rotates in the oposite direction with or without zoom to keep the subject matter in the correct orientation regardless of camera orientation, from what i can tell this one trick program cannot do this but just provide discrete 90 degree rotates on clips leaving the transions clips in a mess. Okay the tool I found was introduced by Karl on a previous giveaway, it requires a little more thought than these limited function tools but the end result can be very professional looking and is free for personal use all the time.

Just as Karl writes,
"The software does what it claims, it rotates a video. This feature is found in other applications, too." so this is often interpreted negatively about a program only makes one or at most two things.
For me it's the opposite!
I have a particular fondness for these programs.
Most often it's just one thing you just have to do for now and it's nice not having to start a large and "heavy" program for just that.

If one as I have a program like Fences, so one can name their shortcuts to something descriptive, as in this case, "Rotate video."
Easy to find the program that does just what you want!

Many large programs may, but is not always the best at all the functions and who remembers all the features that a certain program can?

Small smart software and many are additionally transportable, saving many starts heavy and memory intensive programs, before you may find just the tool you are looking for.

The mantra "Think big" is not always applicable.

This is an interesting program, but doesn't a built in computer program, like Windows Photo Gallery or Windows Media Center, do the same thing? If so, then why download this program?

Maybe I'm missing something but I am trying to figure out why I would need to rotate a video. I guess if someone made an error while making a video. Or perhaps you can rotate it to allow you to view a video while lieing on your side. For me I will have to pass on this as I find it antiuseful. Thank you GOTD team for your efforts and to the publisher, VideoRotator.com for you offer.

Does this re-encode the video to rotate it, or is it lossless? With any video-altering software it is always important to know if it re-encodes the video, as each time the video is processed, it looses a little quality each time.

Althougj I used it when offered in the last GAOTD but recently I used GOM player and found the option of rotating under video > rotate. It has three options 90, 180, 270 degree. So anybody just for viewing any video, they can make use of GOM player but if in case of saving the video and using it in future they can use todays gaotd offer.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.2 Pro 64 bit system.

A (Chinese - Xi`an Zhihengyinwu Co. Ltd.) company without name&address, the version 1.0 is on the market since October, 2012.

Upon start a small non resizable window opens. In the setting you can switch a sound reminder on/off. You can add a file or folder, the default output directory is c:\output. Not a good place...

You can rotate your video in 90 degree steps - or mirror it. You can of course leave the orientation as it is and use this small tool as a simple converter.

The software uses the original MEncoder from the Mplayer team (Sherpya-SVN-r3401.4.6.2) from 2011, but does not give any credit to this (copyrighted) software. The added "Direct Show Native Wrapper" dsnative.dll is bundled with MPlayer package, too.

The software does what it claims, it rotates a video. This feature is found in other applications, too.

Uninstalled via reboot.
