Rotate Video
March 01, 2016 06:37PM
I'm having trouble finding a simple way to rotate an iPhone video. I've tried multiple methods and it's surprising how such a simple tweak has become so complex! I would ideally like to rotate the video without recompressing it, therefore avoiding conversion time. Retaining metadata would be nice.

Methods I've tried:

1. Quicktime Player v10.4 - Tips: Rotating Video Files in OSX
Good: Quick conversion.
Bad: The exported file is 4 times larger in size than the original.

2. VLC v2.2.2 - How to Rotate Video with VLC Player on Mac/Windows
Good: Instant conversion.
Bad: Only for playback, doesn't save to file. Also outdated instructions. Under step 3, there is no "Video Filters" under window menu

3. HandBrake - Can HandBrake flip/rotate a video?
Doesn't appear to have rotate feature natively in GUI. I'd rather not use command line.

4. VideoBlend
Too slow. Took 17 minutes to convert a 17 minute long video.

I cannot find the option in Compressor 4. FCP 7 doesn't accept iPhone video files natively meaning I'd have to convert to ProRes first. To be frank, I don't even know how to use FCP X or iMovie.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

i wonder if there's an app to fix it while it's still on your phone?

To clarify, it's actually a screencast recording created on my Mac of the phone's screen. So it should be a Mac app. Thanks Nick.

Use QT Player 7, rotate and save as ref-movie
