When you shoot video on a small camcorder or smartphone, it's all too easy to inadvertently record footage that's upside down or sideways. If you're watching back the recording on a phone, that's not a problem - just rotate the phone in your hand. But that's not so easy if you copy the file to a PC and you want to be able to view it comfortably.
Movie Rotator is a free program for Windows 7 or above, which rotates a movie file and lets you save the converted version. Its user interface is incredibly simple. One button loads a movie from your hard disk and starts it playing. Two other buttons rotate the currently-playing image right or left by 90 degrees. A fourth button saves the rotated movie file back to your PC.
It can take a few minutes to save the rotated file, but this is a once-only job so timing isn't too important.
You'll find the download at http://www.movierotator.com/ and it's a 0.5 MB download. The program is malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust. Although the program is free of charge, the author asks for a small donation if you find it useful. This is optional.
