I cannot complete activation with free registration key. After putting key in registration cell it states activation successful and to restart program. However, restarted program still is not activated. Assistance needed.

Allow the users to rotate the videos at any angle.

You can do so in portable VirtualDub. Choose any angle you want.
Use the filter named "rotate2".
I have rotated a video to 40º and saved it. The video plays back well at 40º tilt with accurate audio synch. But successful only in AVI video format. I have not managed to make VirtualDub work with other video formats such as MOV or MP4, even after installing the so-called plugins. Of course, you can easily convert those other format videos to AVI format before processing in VirtualDub.

That said, I much prefer today's giveaway Video-Rotator by PDFZilla for general use of 90º, 180º and 270º video rotate.

Karl (post #1), the only time I've wanted to rotate a video is when they were posted sideways on Youtube. This happens frequently enough to be annoying.

has it ever occurred to you to instruct your girlfriend simply to turn her telephone sideways? Or ask her to google "vertical videos."

re prev (false) review:
$30 for this? I don’t see the point of having a program do what VLC, Media Player Classic and other players can do for free.


Not true. Those programs will PLAY the video rotated (if you make the adjustment) but will not change the video so it stays rotated, as this program does.

Installed and registered fine. I loaded a video clip (MPG) taken with my camera. It rotated the image but the resulting image and the sound are not in sync. Also,the resulting file was over 4 times as large as the original file. Not a good solution for me.

I have several video editors in my PC but this seems to be a much quicker solution just to fire up and turn the video to the correct position than to waiting for those huge editors to load to do the simple task, IF, however, as some viewers have complained, there is no quality loss or freezing problems.

And about "no one needs to turn a video 90 degrees", my ex girlfriend always sends me videos of her cats taken with her iPhone (or iPad), which are always taken in portrait mode but come to me in landscape mode, so quickly (?) turning them clockwise to be able to view them without braking my neck is a godsend. Quality loss with such cat videos would be no problem for me and actually the size shrinking might come in handy to some people who want to upload a video to FB or YouTube.
People with little problems might need little programs, sometimes, so don't knock a program, especially when it is free as in GOTD, just because you might never had a relevant problem.

I haven't tried it but it appears that the popular VLC has a rotate command; do a find on "rotate" in https://wiki.videolan.org/VLC_command-line_help

Worked as advertised on Win 7 64 bit machine.

This is useful when friends send me videos from their iPhones -- they're often rotated 90 degrees (landscape instead of portrait). I can rotate them in VLC, but it takes several steps and doesn't save the rotated file, so I have to go through the same steps with each viewing.

This product worked perfectly. The output quality seems fine (these are phone movies, so your mileage may vary). One oddity: The input file I tested was 2300KB. The output file was 24,000KB.

WARNING: Several people have recommended Freemake. I tried it last week and it installed the Conduit search. Conduit hijacked my browser settings and installed a utility that prevented me from restoring the settings. I have to use Malwarebytes and Revo Uninstaller to get things back to normal. Search for Freemake + Conduit and you'll find many tales of woe.

Had this from the old GOTD giveaway on 2 June 2013.
Works simply, easily and reliably.
No issues with speed or output.

Very suitable for rotating videos from small digital compact.

I was shooting some video with my camera (not my camcorder) and a waterfall was in the video - I wanted all of it in the shot, so I held the camera for a "portrait" rather than a "landscape" shot.

When I got home & transferred the shots, the waterfall was running sideways. It was almost funny, and possibly a newbie mistake, however - software like this is a life saver. Who wants to take a bigger heavier camera with them on their - hikes?

this is done for free by VLC media player. Don't you think that the price tag of $30 is way too high for a simple software

Used this in past. Totally good program. Only thing it takes too much time while rotating the video. Also becomes little irresponsive while using it.

This converts a sideways avi to 0 bytes for me. Cant get it to work. Windows 7. tried converting to all different choices and still got 0 bytes output file
file i am trying to convert is an avi size 8292 KB. Is it too small to convert?

Freemake worked perfectly so I uninstalled video rotator.

with a smartphone it is not always clear how to hold it when using the camera function. So when the movie is upside down, it is handy to rotate it

I got Video Rotator from gotd 12-15-2012. Worked fine and was fun to rotate video 1 time! Not much use since then! People with phones might find this program useful????

I gave it a video filmed in portrait on an iPhone (please don't do that!) and it rotated it 90 degrees so now its landscape but plays on its side! So whats the point?
I want to convert portrait video to landscape video. That would be useful.

Unfortunately no possibility to modify the quality of the output file. Output quality is very bad as a 35 Mb file turn into a 4 Mb...
FreeMake is free and very good as you can get high quality file output

Well I have used this in the past too and is really impressed by it. The only drawback is this program takes too much time while converting the video and also becomes inresponsive too.

In essence this program should be part of a video editor as described by #3 alcassaro with Freemake, not as a standalone program at some silly price.
A bit like having a program that only does punctuation in a text document.
But if you look on at "Featured titles” on today's page they write programs that are merely functions that should be included in a decent program.
Some say the PC is dead and frankly it deserves to be the way many developers are ripping off their customers these days.

Only footage I have of a trans-continental Air Race I flew in the early 70's are the hastily-assembled "Out-takes" from a long lost TV film - transferred to video.
The only problem - some of the shots are inverted or reversed. So this program is a life-saver for me as I edit video sequences for my almost-completed e-book.
Just goes to show that some of these seemingly "one-trick pony giveaways" may be EXACTLY what folks like me need.
So thanks PDFzilla & GOTD.
I REALLY appreciate this software.

Allow the users to rotate the videos at any angle.
Why do the developers think that when we record videos we can hold the camera precisely at one of the four main angles?

Useful if someone sends you a video from a mac (.mov format)and you have a PC - if they filmed it in portrait mode it will always end up rotated 90%. Just so happened this was useful for me today so does what it says. Will keep it :)

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system.

A company without name and address. We had hat the same video rotator on June 2, 2013. http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/video-rotator-1-0-9/
A telephone number under PDFzilla.

A small not resizable window opens, you can alter the one and only setting (no settings) : sound reminder on/off.

You add your video, you select the output format and you can rotate or mirror the video. Yes you can also select "none", then you simply change the output format. No complicate presets, no additional features.

This little program does, what it claims. If you ever wanted to mirror your video or flip it upside down, than use this program, if you don't have any other programs of this kind on your system.

Uninstalled via reboot. I have to admit, that I never felt the need to rotate a video 90 degrees clockwise.
