Video playing upside down? How to correct this.
"I take videos that I have recorded from the camera in my mobile phone & put them on my lap top. Usually no problem, but when I took the last ones I held my mobile phone the wrong way (upside down). The videos are the right way up when viewed on my phone but when I down load them onto my lap top & view them they are upside down. Any suggestions how to fix this?"
Download the free VLC video player and install it.
Once you have installed it open your video in this program, pause it, if it starts playing.
Go to the menu item "Tools" click it.
Then click in the item "Effects & Filters", in the drop down box that appears.
In the box that appears click the "Video Effects" Tab and then the "Geometry" Tab, after this tick the "Rotate" item in the window under this tab.
Now use the rotational dial next to it and rotate the video to 180 degs.
After you have oriented the video the way you want it, click "Save" and then click the "Close" button at the bottom of this box.
Now when you start playing the video it will have the correct orientation.
If you don't press "Save", the next time you open the video, it will revert to the original orientation!
