Rotate Video Using VLC Media Player

Many people recommend the free VLC video player to watch the video in the correct orientation, but the finished product isn’t permanent. If you want to rotate and save your video so that it always plays in the correct orientation, we recommend using Windows Movie Maker. There are other software programs out there, which purport to be “free”, but we can’t attest to their safety.

For the sake of simplicity and saving time, Windows Movie Maker is the way to go. It might be a little dated, but it is still available and it just plain works. So we’ll discuss that before explaining the temporary VLC method.

Make sure you have downloaded and installed VLC. If you don’t have it yet, you can find it here: download VLC.
