How do you rotate a video taken upside-down?

On an iPhone 4.

I am rather annoyed that it looks OK on my phone and upside-down on my computer. Is there any easy way to fix this? All software that could do this on a PC doesn't like .mov files

This just happened to me today. I accidentally started to shoot the video on my iPhone 4 in portrait mode before rotating the phone to landscape.

You can fix the orientation in Quicktime Pro for Windows or Mac.

1. Copy the video to your computer.

2. Open video in Quicktime Pro (has to be Pro).

3. From the menu in QT Pro select Window-->Show Movie Properties

4. When the Movie Properties windows appears, select the video track, then click the Visual Settings tab.

5. On the Visual Settings tab there are button to change the videos orientation. So if you shot the video in portrait for example, select the "rotate counter-clockwise" button.

6. Exit Quicktime Pro and you should be prompted to save your file.

That's it!

Sorry to necro this thread, but is there a way to "fix" this without using any software on PC/Mac ?

Like some tweak so that the iPhone itself "fixes".

once the video is taken, no. but for future videos, you have to make sure you hold it with the record button on the right in landscape mode. I'm left-handed and I've made the mistake a few times. The odd thing is if I export the video to iMovie on my Macbook to edit it, it's upside down, but if I export it to iMovie on my iPhone, edit and then export to YouTube or whatever, it's fine.

Apple needs to fix the upside down movie issue

Carlanga - really what is the right way to hold the iPhone with it's "+" on the bottom. How many cameras in the market have their shutter button on the bottom of the camera. Let's face it, this was not thought well by Apple and hopefully in the next release they will give us an option to fix this. One of the most annoying issue with the iPhone camera.
