Video Rotator is a program that allows Windows users to rotate various formats of video.

Is there anything more obnoxious than a film clip that's filmed at the wrong angle? We like to watch movies shot horizontally. Not only does it just look better in general, but our monitors are made with this kind of viewing in mind. Sadly, some people insist on shooting things oddly. They'll turn the camera upside-down or, even worse, turn it vertically. If you want to avoid this assault on your senses, you'll need to rotate the video. That's where Video Rotator comes into play, allowing you to view your videos as they were intended to be seen - in a normal, horizontal format.

Yes, Video Rotator does more than put your movie files back in a normal point of rotation. It can actually rotate the video ninety degrees, flip it horizontally, or even flip the images upside down. This is, of course, probably not something the average user is going to want - but it is nice that the option is there. Since it works with fifteen different file formats, you've also got the benefit of being able to flip just about anything shot on video or on a cell phone.

If there is a downside to this program, it is the fact that it doesn't do anything other than rotate videos. There are no editing features, nor are there any other features that can improve the quality of the video. All it does is flip your videos around, and that's enough if you're annoyed by oddly shot movies. This free program does a great service, even if it might seem like a minor issue to many.
