    Wouldn't extract and when I finally finagled it to, it was neutralized by my antivirus.

    Not worth the effort.

    Anybody know if it's possible to do more than one operation per encoding? When something's upside down you don't want to just flip it vertically so that everything's backwards (you end up with a mirror image).

    Given the buttons available, it looks like you'd need to either flip vertically AND flip horizontally, or you'd have to rotate it 180° (2x the "clockwise" button for example). I'm hoping you don't have to render the video twice and degrade the image even more than a single operation. Has anybody tried this?

    Whoops, never mind. I didn't know this was a disguised front end to FFMPEG. I'll just download that since it's free. :)

    Dan, probably no need to download the command line FFMPEG.EXE as you likely have it from the the many different chinese video converter giveaways... just search FFMPEG.EXE any program you can download with it in will work since it is NEVER restricted by the GUI front end license the vendor tries to illegally land you with.

    Probably ok but HandBrake can do this along with its other vid tools.

    Video rotation is a bit annoying, as for example iPhone videos have an orientation flag, but many media players ignore it. For example on Windows, VLC and MPC-HC ignore the flag but Windows Media Player doesn't. So what you get depends on how you view it.
    It also means using the 1 sec approach of changing the flag won't work on many players.
    Unfortunately popular video Codecs like H.264 can't be losslessly rotated so you have to re-encode.

    As an aside if anyone wants to play with the rotation flag (rather than re-encoding) and is okay with the Windows Command Prompt here's how:

    Download FFMPEG from here:
    https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/
    E.g. for 64-bit Win10 choosing 4.2.1 (or higher) 64-bit and static (chosen options are darker) then "Download Build".

    From the Zip file you just need ffmpeg.exe from the bin directory. If you put it in the same directory as the file you may need to type ".\ffmpeg" not "ffmpeg" to run it, as not all Windows installations have the current directory in the search path for programs.

    To Rotate losslessly, which requires a player that supports the rotation flag (see above for examples, probably worth checking the flag isn't correct already by playing in WMP):

    ffmpeg -i input.mov -metadata:s:v:0 rotate="90" -codec copy output.mov

    Or rotate="270" to go the other way (-90 used to be unreliable). Note this is absolute, so if it was 90 already setting 90 will not change it, "ffmpeg input.mov" will show it in the output.
    Change input.mov/output.mov to suit, add ""s if they contain spaces.

    You can also rotate with re-encode in FFMPEG, but it's more complicated than just getting a GUI program to do it.

    Reply   |   Comment by JohnL  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+9)

    For completeness, if anyone has the time to spare, this is how to rotate, re-encode and scale in FFMPEG...

    ffmpeg -i Input.mov -vcodec libx264 -acodec copy -s 640x360 -vf "transpose=2" output.mov

    For the transpose parameter you can pass:

    0 = 90CounterCLockwise and Vertical Flip (default)
    1 = 90Clockwise
    2 = 90CounterClockwise
    3 = 90Clockwise and Vertical Flip

    Use -vf "transpose=2,transpose=2" for 180 degrees.

    If you don't want to scale leave " -s 640x360" out.

    Replace one of the scaling parameters with -1 to have it use the correct value for the original aspect ratio (but may break if it results in a number the output codec doesn't like).

    JohnL, And while you are playing around with the legally distributed FFMPEG binaries look for a file named GPLv3.TXT or something similar I believe in the downloaded installation and have a read and see how these developers are extracting the urine out of the explicit text of the GPLv3 license, as well as it's overall intent. YOU are abiding by the GPLv3 license beacuse all the source is there too as well as the copy of the license text, todays vendor is not.

    Downloaded the Zip, read the Readme.txt file, which says to go to "Register Now" in the lower left. There is no such thing in the program in the lower left or anywhere else I can find. I'd like to comply but I don't see how to.

    So I don't know if the program is functional or not.

    Reply   |   Comment by Jeff S  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

    Jeff S,
    When you run VideoRotator, there should be a link in the bottom left corner that says something like "Register ViideoRotator" (it's not the exact wording given in the ReadMe, but close enough). When you click that link, two things happen... a page opens to their site asking you to buy the program for $29.95, which you can ignore and just close... and a box opens on the program asking you to enter your registration key (from the Giveaway of the Day ReadMe). Once you enter the key it closes the VideoRotator program and asks you to restart the program.
    There's no indication the program is actually registered in the "About" menu, but that link in the lower left corner changes from "Register" to just linking to their page.
    Confusing, yes... but it does appear to work.

    If you already have VideoProc installed, it is capable of rotating your videos.
    And you may not need this one. You can install if you wish though it may ad to the clog in your PC with multiple software that do the same thing.

    Does it work lossless or with new encoding?

    Reply   |   Comment by Julia  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

    Julia, It appears that the program re-encodes the videos. There's no option to simply copy the content. As suggested in another reply here, you could try raising the bitrate on the operation to achieve a better output if the default setting isn't acceptable.

    Reply   |   Comment by BobR  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

    Julia,

    "Does it work lossless or with new encoding?"

    You can try to change a video file's meta data, and depending on the player, that can work, but otherwise the video itself has to be re-encoded -- there's no software that can do that losslessly.

    "... you could try raising the bitrate on the operation to achieve a better output..."

    Use the free MediaInfo to get the bit rate for the original file, then match that. You're going to lose some quality re-encoding -- no help for that -- but you won't lose any because of increasing the amount of video compression. Anyway, takes out the guesswork, as increasing the bit rate beyond the original only increases file size, not quality.

    Julia, you can losslessly rotate MJPEG (Motion JPEG) but for Codecs after that (so pretty much everything current) you're out of luck. Some video containers (like .MOV) contain a (not entirely standard) parameter for video rotation. Changing this is an instant fix, but not that many video players bother with it, plus it might be correct already and your player is ignoring it...

    very useful program for turning video's recorded on a mobile phone which can turn out sideways or even upside down

    Steve,

    "very useful program for turning video's recorded on a mobile phone which can turn out sideways or even upside down"

    Or you can just rotate it in the player settings, e.g. using VLC.

    Mykee, You can set the bitrate higher a bit to get a better output. :)

    Same version was offered earlier this year on June 26: https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/video-rotator-4-3/
    If you missed it earlier this year, it's a handy little tool. :)

    KK,

    The version they offered on 2019-06-26 cannot be the exact same as the one offered today because the Setup.exe files have different md5 hash values:
    2019-06-26: 01FDFC1C F153D692 782A991F BAFBC1B5
    2019-10-23: 29B3238C 3BCFE16B A935FE74 ABA7816F
    The file download size reported in the sidebar changed from 13.8 to 13.9 MB.

    Gary,

    The version MAY be the exact same then as now; however, I'm pretty sure one reason would be that the SETUP.EXE as supplied by GOTD is likely different due to GOTD's own coding which will vary as follows:

    After the installation is complete a window nearly always appears which, upon closing, launches your web browser to a post-install page about spreading the news and sharing that title with others.

    Since the address of that web page will be different each day, even for repeat offers, then the hash value of SETUP.EXE will also change.

    HMarx,

    Another reason I forgot to mention:

    That post-install setup pop-up window often includes an activation code or other registration info which will be different from the earlier (otherwise exact duplicate) offer date, thus changing the hash value of SETUP.EXE .
