I have recently taken some videos on my Moto Droid and I had the camera vertical when I recorded. When I sent the video to my PC it was playing sideways. Is there a way to correct this? Some of the pictures that I have taken are sideways too but I can rotate them to portrait mode no problem. I don't know how to do this with video. Is it possible?

Not sure if you can rotate video..might have to just turn it sideways.

Google it. You'd need an app (desktop as I doubt there's a Droid app) to reencode the video with the image rotated 90 degrees. There were lots of hits with rotate and video as keywords.

Speaking of videos... I took a 2 min video the other day and I can't text or email it. Says the file is too large. WTF :angry:

a desktop program that runs w/pc OR Mac.....

Rotate and Watch a Video in VLC
Download, install, and run VLC Media Player. (See download link below)

Open your video file by going to Media > Open File… and browsing for your file. Or, by just dragging and dropping your video onto the VLC player.

Choose Tools from the Menu bar and select Effects and Filters.

On the Video Effects tab, tick the Transform checkbox and choose your degrees of rotation. The video is rotated counter-clockwise, so to rotate clockwise 90 degrees you’ll want to choose Rotate by 270 degrees.

Now you can enjoy your video the way it was intended to be viewed.

You'll need to turn down the video quality... on the default camera, there are two settings, High (for SD card), and Low (for MMS messages).

Ok, I don't know why but I had to uninstall and reinstall VLC and it worked! Thank so much for your help!
