    Just what I needed, I've been joining together family videos on my phone to make a movie, some are portrait and some are landscape. Not many video tools will do this rotation, thanks.

    the add folder method they use is broken it adds everything in the selected folder including non-files and folders and non-video files.... even "C:\users\Public\Videos\.." and "C:\users\Public\Videos\."

    And removing those completely wrong entries has to be done manually one entry at a time and each time the Remove operation has to be confirmed on each single selected bad batch entry... otherwise the program tries to force feed conv.exe/ffmpeg.exe with the bad data and ignores any errors the bad data causes.

    If a video is shot on a smart phone in portrait FHD and you want to view it on a FHD screen that is in landscape mode you do not want to just rotate the video you will need to resize it too so the vertical resolution is no longer 1920 but is 1080 and reduce the portrait width acordingly too. I don't see this as able to do that. The video would need to be resized once rotated to 608 x 1080 to avoid black bar padding having to be encoded.

    The System Requirements in the information panel above is not correct since the program uses the renamed FFMPEG.EXE renamed to conv.exe that was built with WIndows 7 and above dependency causing conv.exe to raise an exception. To see the nature of the error try launching conv.exe in the program files installations data folder and if you try to run it on anything less than windows 7 you'll get at least:

    "The procedure entry point GetNumaNodeProcessorMaskEx could not be located in dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll"
    conv.exe is built from FFMPEG version 4.1 with the default git repository being designed for Windows 7 and above. As usual with Chinese companies no attribution to the FFMPEG open source project or any inclusion of the GPL V3 license text... without all the work put in by FFMPEG contributors this program would not function on any operating system.

    Notice: As someone here said before this programme is only good for those who record
    videos from their ios&android smartphones in a vertical way (not rotated yet) or fashion if u like,
    then u convert it to any format to watch them in a horizontal way being the device anything u like from
    tv 16:9 etc..., pc, tablet, dvd-br player, consoles, web browsers, to video players....as simple as that
    well the final results is up to you to comment, didnt myself test it yet

    You can easily rotate, flip or transpose videos in VLC Media Player, which is always free.

    Can VLC Media Player also re-save (into an output file) the altered video that it is playing such that the changes are permanent for anyone viewing it on any other player?

    HMarx,

    "Can VLC Media Player also re-save (into an output file) the altered video..."

    Most decent players can rotate video. It's up to the player to decide how it displays the video initially, & whether or not it obeys flags in the video saying in effect "this side up". You can set those flags using ffmpeg without re-encoding -- otherwise the only way to change the actual orientation is to re-encode, which will always lose some quality. If that quality loss doesn't bother you, then Video Rotator will work, or you can use VLC:

    Vinai Kitcharoen, try again using copy and paste as it worked just fine for me and did not attempt any internet server validation so that can't be a problem. maybe you used a O instead of the 0 or some other typo.

    Ken, it also does not check the return status of the conversion and assumes it was successfull even if conv.exe crashes because it won't run on versions of windows before windows 7. A primitive FFMPEG GUI that offers the bare minimum of settings and no sanity checking on the tasks it's asked to do.

    When taking videos in the "portrait" mode with an Iphone, is the rotation necessary after transferring them to a Windows 10 computer? One also has to change the format from .mov to another format, no?

    Reply   |   Comment by Lau  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

    Lau, the need to convert a .MOV file to any other container format is not based on the fact it's being moved to a WIndows 10 machine since there are players that happily play .MOV files without change under WIndows based systems. You may need to convert the video to a different container format and codec if you plan on playing the movie file on a device that has restrictions on the types of files and codecs it can play, but that is really the only legitimate reason to waste power and time re-encoding a .MOV video to say an .MKV or .MP4 file. In my opinion... of course.

    If you have a group of photos or video, do you have to individually select those that are upside down/sideways/etc. or does the program automatically detect those and then either auto “correct” or ask you if you wish to “correct” and to which type of file and orientation?

    Reply   |   Comment by Su James L  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

    Su James L, good question... If you add a folder of videos they all will get rotated the same way you set the selector to and with the same bit rate and the same output format.... there is NO way to configure individual files rotation, bitrate or output file type or output location when operating in batch mode. And yes that is a serious design omission.

    This is exactly the video tool I've been looking for because - as a former film editor - I have several important DVDs containing historic footage that was salvaged from film "trim bins" at the last minute (by others) and resulted in inverted/backwards sections that I can now correct (hopefully).
    Thanks for this Video Rotator & GOTD.
    Fingers crossed...

    FREE Google Picasa for Mac and Windows ( with versions all the way back to out XP fellow GOTD ) are available from the file sharing site like FilePuma, FileHippo, FileHourse, Archice. org and so on.

    The latest version for Windows computers is Picasa 3.9.141 Build 259

    The latest version for Mac computers is Version 3.9

    The ONLY function that Google eliminated is uploading to Google Picasa Web / Google Photos, but independent add ins for uploading to Flickr are functional.

    Google is focusing on CLOUD apps, and abandoning LOCAL programs as much as possible, but their LOCAL programs still work just fine.

    Yet, FREE Google Picasa works just fine at rotating and resaving videos, the offering of today's GOTD otherwise NOT FREE program.

    AND, FREE Google Picasa also does so much more, such that I use it daily for:

    - screen grabs,

    - editing for social media illustrations,

    - importing the day's shoot DIRECTLY from phones and cameras and camera cards, automatically putting them in date-directories by EXIF,

    - screen-saver slide shows of our photo collections, including collections still on web,

    - rotate photos and videos,

    - optimize exposure and sharpness and other default or custom adjustments in batches across an entire folder,

    - convert to filtered black and white in batches across an entire folder, I do it twice, once with a green filter, and once with a red filter,

    - adding fill flash effects after the fact to underexposed images,

    - making collages,

    - face recognition, Rolodex creation of folks, emailing directly via GMail,

    - scan images from TWAIN sources,

    - the image storage uses native Windows file structure so all other programs can work on the same images in the same order, too,

    - ORIGINALS are never changed, only scripted to your choices of straighten, crop, auto-expose, sharpen, and tons of other controls, and if you want to use the results outside FREE Google Picasa, simply export them, the ORIGINALS stay intact,

    - more, more, more, endless, I have not discovered everything FREE Google Picasa can do.

    ALL across our current 40,000+ and growing image archive of raw and JPEG and BMP and TIFF and PNG from film scans, print scans, and direct digital capture, including images downloaded from the web that aren't mine but that I want to study and appreciate.

    And I use FREE Google Picasa on customer computers to reorganize their "all over the disk" random picture non-collections into ONE chronological archive according to EXIF date taken, I turn on the slide show screen saver, and watch my customers melt in appreciation and awe at finally getting to see, all in one place, ALL of their precious photos.

    I even walk around their house and take photos of their old print photos and instantly import them into FREE Google Picasa.

    For invalids, I also photograph their open cabinets around the kitchen, house, basement, and attic so they can see their storage of materials, and so that helpers know where to find stuff without having to re-purchase needed items like detergent and other consumables, their entire house contents on a screen-saver slide show to remind them of where they live and what's stored in there.

    FREE.

    I don't understand why anyone would want this. What would you use it for. Does "flipping" mean the clip would run backwards?

    Reply   |   Comment by Bob  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-21)

    Why would someone want this? Because millions of numbnuts regularly shoot video with their cell phones in the portrait (vertical alignment) position, somehow forgetting that most video is watched on computer and television screens which are horizontally aligned in the landscape position. Video recorded in portrait mode can play back 'on its side' on a computer monitor or TV if not rotated. thus making a program which rotates it 90º or 270º very useful.

    As far as 'flipping' the video, that means simply reversing the image, as in a mirror. Horizonal flipping means right and left are reversed, but up remains up and down remains down. Vertical flipping means up and down are reversed but left remains left and right remains right.

    Where would this be useful? I've noticed that when using the front facing camera on my cell phones (as you would for a 'selfie' pic), the resulting image is flipped horizontally. If there is something written - eg: a sign in the background, it will be reversed as it would in a mirror. To make the image appear as it would have to others present, the image needs to be horizontally flipped. If the same happens when video is shot with the front camera, that would need to be horizontally flipped to not be reversed from the way things actually appeared.

    You would likely have to combine the two functions if someone shot selfie video on their cell phone front camera in portrait position and you wanted to play it back on a computer or TV screen. First you would rotate the image 90 or 270º to put it upright in a landscape frame, then flip it horizontally to get rid of the 'mirror' effect.

    I hope this clarifies for you how the program would be used and why it will be useful to many people.

    There's a video I took that shows sideways because the phone was in portrait when I pressed record but after that I was recording in landscape. I'm going to see if I can use this to fix it.
