    I needed to rotate -90 degrees, so I went for 270 degrees since -90 was not offered. End result? Rotated 270 degrees TWICE (540 degrees), so essentially an upside-down version of the original. And no sound. Very frustrating!

    Thanks for the useful info.

    I have a suggestion about the 18th step. Please do not "Reset" preferences, as it would reset to default, all other preferences too that we may have set earlier. Instead just un-check the "Video transformation filter" we checked in the 9th step.

    Really thanks for sharing this information. I had to do this with different applications which takes alot of time but now I am using VLC after reading your tips and finding it very easy to rotate videos for my youtube Channel. Thanks once again!

    At step 9, choose the "Video transformation filter", it is not clear that this selection is paged off the screen, and even worse, is paged off the right of the screen. As i have a newer version of VLC i thought this option may have been renamed. It was by pure accident i discovered where it was, after wasting an awful amount of time on trial and error.

    Hello
    One question – I can't figure out "how" – for exampleI want apply filter effect motion blur. Ok I make it easy can watch video with effect…but when I want to convert WHICH file should I open? How create file with filter? Red dot can record movie…but how make -save- my motion blur when it's apllied ? When I choose media, convert, add – which file add? because I have only "native" files without motion blur – how create file with motion blur? (I made all things in advanced settings and video is saved well but without filter…)

    Can I save VLC video as explained here after sharpening the image. (Instead of rotating).

    What do I do to stop the sharpening filter affecting all my other video files which default to VLC for playback on my desktop.

    I just want to sharpen one specific video in VLC and save it without affecting other VLC videos files.

    I'm using VLC 2.1.6

    The look of some of the screens has changed somewhat, but the essential elements, with just a little more searching, are still there.

    I had a .MOV file that was upside-down.

    I experimented with following these instructions. For instance, it made NO SENSE to me that I had to specify the Audio encoding. But when I left that step out, I got a very noisy audio. So I tried selecting "Keep original audio track", which, after all, makes sense: it is all I wanted to do about the audio. What I got was no audio at all!

    When I did what these instructions say, and set the audio to MP3, I got something that plays as desired.

    This leaves a few questions and ONE BIG COMPLAINT!

    What would be the Video and Audio settings for videos that were originally in formats other than .MOV ? How would one know, and how would one specify that the output format should be the same as the input (except for the rotational transformation)?

    The BIG COMPLAINT is not with these instructions, but with VLC itself: It seems to me that the User Interface for a transformation like a 90- or 180- -degree rotation with save should be as straightforward with a video player as it is for photo viewers. One pull-down item and an option either to over-write the loaded image or to save it under a new name; it applies to the selected item(s) only, and only for one time. Resetting Preferences should be automatic and unnecessary on the part of the user.

    No operation — certainly not one as elementary as this — should require such a complex and non-obvious procedure, to say nothing of instructions supplied by a third party.

    Thanks lakonst,
    I did switch to version 2.0.2. and got the angle correct, but how do I crop the image back to a normal "picture frame" perspective. Otherwise I have a cockeyed video. I tried cropping it under "/Adjustments and Effects/Video Effects/Crop", where I increase the "Top, Bottom, Left, & Right edges until they straighten into a square, but when I render it, the cropping doesn't work.
    I'm also having difficulty saving the finished files. There are 3 .mov files that I list in the "Media/Convert-Save/Open Media/File". That is where I list the 3 files that need correcting, but when I list all 3 in their proper order, only 1 file is listed in the "Convert/Source" window. Then once I click Start, it appears to be rendering the one file, but it doesn't save the rendering.
    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks lakonst, without your help, I'd have to give it up… Kind of a steep learning curve on all the capabilities this program offers.

      Hundrummer, (this is my thought…):
      After you correct the video angle reset VLC preferences.
      Then take the video with the correct angle and make the cropping as you did.
      A step 9. select the "Crop Video filter".
      Convert/Save your video now…
      (I do not know if it works but give a chance…)

    I have a rather unique problem I've been trying to solve with VLC. I need to rotate a .mov file to an arbitrary angle (approx. 5-10 degrees to right) because the camera was tilted when my girlfriend did the video. I'm using VLC 2.1.5 and when I rotate it to the proper angle, it creates a slight diamond shape, so then I use the "crop" selection to correct the proper prospective, but when I render the file it rotates it another 90 degrees to the right and drops the cropping and perspective.
    I was following the very top instructions, and tried several times, but got the same results.
    Is it possible to complete my project, or is it beyond VLC's capabilities. Even though it's a GREAT program, I'm just frustrated trying to get this done.
    Thanks in advance!

      Hi Humdrummer,
      This is what I did this morning for that job and it works:
      1. Remove VLC 2.1.2
      2. Download and Install VLC 2.0.2.
      3. Open VLC 2.0.2 & do the following changes in this process:
      – At step 6. Check the "Rotate" option instead of "Transform". Specify your desired angle (using the rotate button under the "Rotate" option).
      – At step 9. Select "Rotate Video Filter" instead of "Video transformation filter" and click save.
      All the rest are the same as was written in this tutorial.
      Good luck and tell us the results.

      The answer to this problem is discussed above, in my reply to Jerry's question of Dec 04, 2013 @ 01:05:24 .

      Basically, with newer versions of VLC, you should use the 'Rotate' function instead of 'Transform'.

    Hello,

    I have been attempting to save a rotated file for viewing in other programs. I have been having problems.

    With older versions of VLC the converted file is saved as a .ps file.

    With the newest version, the conversion went well; but, the file that was saved has two identical videos images, one above the other, being played.

    Any suggestions?

    (Although there are problems, I do want to thank you for such a great, thorough writeup.)

      Hi Jeff20141,
      With the older version…at step 12.:At "convert" options, choose "Browse", select the destination folder (e.g. "Desktop"), give a file name for the converted file (e.g. "IMG_1822Rotated") and SPECIFY the output video file type (e.g. ".MOV").
      That's it!

        Hi Lakonst,

        Thanks for the reply.

        I misunderstood one step… and that was the problem.

        When naming the file, I thought the file type/extension would be automatically applied. The dropdown for "Save as type" showed only "Containers" (with multiple extensions listed). In that situation I am accustomed to the file type being automatically applied.

        When I added ".mov" to the end of the file name I typed, the conversion worked properly.

        Thanks for your suggestion and quick reply.

      I followed these instructions and also wound up with duplicated video, using VLC 2.1.3 Rincewind. In other words, the file had two video images — once on the bottom, and one on the top.

      To solve this, I made the following change:

      Under Tool, Preferences, click on All (settings).

      Then, under Stream Output, Sout stream, Transcode, I removed the checkmark from "Video transformation filter", and added a check to "Rotate video filter".

      I clicked Save to exit settings.

      Then, under Tools, Effects and Filters — I clicked Video Effects, Geometry.

      I removed the check from "Tranform: Rotate by x degrees" where x is 90 or 270 usually.

      I added a check to Rotate, and specified 90 degrees counter-clockwise (other users may need 90 degrees clockwise).

      Then I performed the conversion, and it converted correctly, with only a single video.

    Tried to convert a .mp4 video taken on a smartphone, using the latest version, then after uninstalling the new version, using version 2.0.2 (downloaded from the link above). Followed the instructions to the letter. Latest version had errors and didn't want to work at all – sent 4 crash reports in 4 tries. Version 2.0.2 did convert files (tried twice), but only audio appears, no video (tried playing back in WMP). Are there other codecs that could be selected to make this conversion work, or is something else wrong?

    OK, I was able to save & open & its correct now, thank you! Now the problem I was actually trying to resolve, is posting that video onto my facebook but when I do, its sideways again. Is there any way that it "saves" so that if I facebook or email it, they dont have to turn their monitor sideways? Or does this program not save it in a way, that any media player will see it correctly? Thanks.

          See the details of the video you want to rotate (right-click > properties > details). Then in movie maker go to 'Save Movie' & 'create a new custom setting' with the same values (Attention: You have to put the original Width value in Height field and the original Height value in Width). Then save your movie in the new created custom setting.

    Great concise instructions, I learnt VLC has a lot more uses than just a player BUT sadly I had the dual video problem. So followed Bob's Youtube comment it worked and added bonus their software has corrected the camera wobble too!

      I posted the answer to the dual video problem, as a reply to Jerry's question on Dec 04, 2013 @ 01:05:24 .

      Basically, with newer versions of VLC, use 'Rotate' instead of 'Transform'.

      Exact steps are above.

    This is one of the most concise tutorials I have ever seen. HOWEVER it doesn't seem to be working for me: first time VLC crashed and I got the same message mentioned in one of the replies above. So I did the whole procedure again, writing the destination name in English (perhaps the Greek name I had given was a problem) and leaving audio at 128. Now it seems that VLC is "stuck" and I have no idea what it's doing… for the past hour. Can't see the destination file icon like first time, can't play a different video, I've had enough so I'm shutting down. Tried uploading to Youtube as suggested and worked perfectly with no fuss. I think Youtube's automatic correction is the best option. And from now on I will be careful never to film in portrait! Not just because of the fuss… who wants a portrait video in a 15:9 screen???

      Solution to the double image problem when using VLC v. 2.1.3 Rincewind.

      In a nutshell, instead of using the 'Transform' setting, use the 'Rotate' setting.

      Under Tool, Preferences, click on All (settings).

      Then, under Stream Output, Sout stream, Transcode, remove the checkmark from "Video transformation filter", and add a check to "Rotate video filter".

      Click Save to exit settings.

      Then, under Tools, Effects and Filters — click Video Effects, Geometry.

      Remove the check from "Tranform: Rotate by x degrees" where x is 90 or 270 usually.

      Add a check to Rotate, and specify 90 degrees counter-clockwise (other users may need 90 degrees clockwise).

      Perform the conversion, and it converts correctly, with only a single image.

      After the conversion you can find the converted video at the location where you specified to save it at: 12. At “convert” options, choose “Browse“, select the destination folder (e.g. “Desktop”), give a file name for the converted file (e.g. “IMG_1822Rotated”) and specify the output video file type (e.g. “.MOV”).

    Work PC Win7 VLX 2.0.5 -> Came out with video not rotated at all

    Thanks a lot for your efforts and informative explanation! I encountered a minor issue here I wish you could help me with. I have MP4 640×480 videos taken with an old Nokia phone (C5-00) which were saved horizontally. Normally they're played rotated in 480×640. When I use the Transform feature of VLC, they do rotate but they become horizontally stretched with wrong dimensions! I tried the Rotate feature, they don't stretch but they become cropped from top and bottom. Any hint?

    Note: I didn't have that problem with VLC v1.1.9 and earlier, it used to rotate the videos perfectly adjusted. Now I'm using the latest release by the way, v2.0.8

    Very good instructions! Wish it weren't so complicated. I believe there is one thing you could do differently that will affect the audio, though. In Step 15, instead of choosing MP3 format, you should instead check the box that says "Keep original audio track". Even though VLC doesn't encode AAC audio, it will just leave the original alone and you will retain your audio quality.

To be fair I am using a works laptop with Win 7 and it might be an admin rights issue although doubt this would be a problem when its just creating a file. Do you have any ideas for what other problems might be causing this please? Perhaps the codec pack?

    Hi, I followed ur steps to a perticular video that i wanted to rotate. However, it rotated to other videos too and i don't want to change settings for those. The video in VLC player, plays towards the right side bottom of the screen and when i try to drag to the centre of the screen, the video is not covering the window of VLC player instead its still towards the right side bottom. I tried clicking Option – Video – Always fit Window. I am using 2.0.6 version. Windows XP. Kindly help in this regards.

      Hello Shil,
      After you rotate and save your video go to: "Tools" > "Preferences" and press the "Reset Preferences" button at the bottom side of Preferences window to return to default VLC settings.

    Very clear instructions. I'm pretty sure I followed them precisely. Twice. Unfortunately the saved end result (which is down from an original 79.9MB to (rotated) 8.15MB – ?) plays fine in VLC but all I get in Windows Media Player is the audio, while in QuickTime Player, RealPlayer and Windows Live Movie Maker I don't even get that! I'm running VLC media player 2.0.6 Twoflower under Windows 7. Any got any ideas?

    I went through all the steps but when I open it in Windows media player it's not rotated. It's only in the correct orientation when I play through VLC

    Trying to rotate a .avi using VLC 2.0.6 and it does not do it:
    "Adjustments and effects/Video Effects/Geometry" checked the "Transform" box, selected "Rotate by 90 degrees" and nothing happens on the video.
    Anyone knows why?

    -Thanks

      Hello Ms. Bellum

      At step 15. Inside "Audio codec" settings use the drop-down arrow in codec's line and from the list of codecs choose "MP3"…
      before clicking Save, set:
      Bitrate: 320 kb/s ,
      Channels: 2 (Stereo),
      Sample Rate: 44100

          But if I do reset preferences will the one LVC vid which I have rotated (and saved) remain rotated? I'll give it a try.

    Hi there! Thank you for the tip! But… I just updated my VLC version: 2.0.6, i had the 2.0.5, but i have a problem, i do every step, but when i have to convert, i mean: file-save/convert, i get stuck… In my VLC it only says "convert" not "save/convert" and when i click "add" it oppens a browser, i have to choose a file to add, it doesn't add the actual video… And that's it… Do you know what can i do? Thank you!!!

    Sorry about typos in previous post! have just checked other videos – tried open with VLC and none will play at all!!
    Guess I'll try to uninstall VLC and revert back to my previous version 2.02. Will that remove the settings which have been stored by this operation. Maybe Windows Live Movie Maker.can do the job without ruining everything else!

        Hi,
        Thanks for your reply but I didn't do anything wrong – followed your instructions exactly I think. The colour changes I referred to occurred when clicking on transform and then rotating. If I just select 'rotate' and move 90° then colours are fine and video (AVI) is upright however ALL other videos played in VLC are also rotated. I thought your method would apply permanently to the one video which is in the wrong orientation but leave all others alone.
        One problem might be that avi is not available as a profile output when saving.
        Incidentally I do now have VLC 2.06 working normally so will stay with this version. Some other videos taken with my camera I had previously edited with VitualDub and changed the rotation there so I guess I'll have to do this with this one too but I had hoped to avoid that complex procedure.

    doesn't work at all. No audio now and original colours are totally changed. all other videos are now rotated, pixellated and colours messed up! Hwo do I get rid of this mess so that all my other videos will play properly?
    BTW I installed VLC 2.06 (;atest version) to do this. What a disaster – thanks

    Fantastic! Thank you soooo much! It worked for my MP4 video, although the rotated video's resolution was a bit more grainy, and the frame rate a bit lower. A bit of tweaking should eventualy improve this, but a great start! Tanks 10e6!

    This worked well, but in a weird way. I had 4 videos in my playlist. I only wanted to rotate one. The selected video was not rotated and the new file just had some nasty audio. But the original was rotated correctly, along with all the others in the playlist!

    So, a word of advice: don't have lots of videos in your playlist!

    I did this; it did work for playing that video in the right orientation, but subsequent videos now take that same orientation, even after closing the program and reopening.

      You must restore Geometry settings to their default values. (6. In "Geometry" click the "Transform" box to enable transform…)

      Best solution. Buy a Mac. when viewing a movie if you want to rotate it, you click "rotate". and it rotates.

        This is not an answer to the question at all. The question is not how to rotate a playback (you can do that on any platform) but how to rotate the video. Fortunately, VLC works on Windows and Linux — and Mac, too, if you've already bought one.

          I use Quicktime for Mac but I'm sure this works with Quicktime for Windows too. Open the movie, Edit>Rotate (left or right) , File>Export does the trick.
          Sorry if this is old news.

        As John says, this is a solution for rotating and then saving the file so that it can be viewed by others or put on a dvd etc etc.
        Buy a mac? why not just sit on a chair at a right angle too.
