There are times when you may need to rotate a quicktime video, especially if you receive a video by email and it’s not orientated correctly.
In other words, the video needs to be flipped 90 degrees so you can view it without turning your head.
So many people have smartphones and they like to send quick videos.
You receive a video in your email and you have to turn your head 90 degrees just to view it.
You may want to save the video to your computer or share it on social media but you don’t want to post a video until you can rotate it properly.
Here is a screen shot of a video I received on email. As you can see, it came to me sideways and I need to rotate it at least 90 degrees.
Ok, so here is how to rotate a video in QuickTime. Only takes a few seconds.
In my case, I work on a Mac, so I right-clicked the video and chose to view it in Quicktime.
I have Quicktime Pro installed on my MacBook. The pro version gives you a lot more options and flexibility. The pro version of Quicktime only cost $29.99 from Apple. If you work on a Mac. it’s well worth the money.
Here is the video when I opened it up in Quicktime on my Mac.
Your next step is to click “window” at the top of your browser, and click the video properties. A new window will pop up. Click the video track and you can see the option to flip and rotate the quicktime video. You can also see that you have some other options to make changes to the video.
Below is a screenshot of my video after I rotated it 90 degrees.
Now my quicktime video is suitable to watch and I can even share it on social media and no one has to turn their heads 90 degrees.
