Question Any Way To Rotate iPhone Video?

Every once in a while I forget to turn my iPhone 4 sideways when taking video and use it in the vertical position. The result is the video is skewed on it's side in iTunes.

I've searched high and low for a "rotate 90° right" option to no avail.

Am I just missing something obvious, or is this not possible?

Man, I would love to hear a simple solution to this one. My wife does this quite a lot. Worse yet she varies the verticality/horizontalness (if those are even words ). I have only found frame by frame solutions, the immense tediousness of which exceed my patience....

Quicktime 7> open your movie> Window menu>movie Properties>click on the video track and then under the visual setting tab you will be given the option to rotate. Save As...

And there you have it.

Thanks. Wish they'd make it more intuitive to do.

yeah it's the dumbest place to put it. You think QTX would have a macro to adjust it.

iMovie can do it as well in the Ken Burns/Crop/Fit function. When your clip is in the project, you can rotate it there.

Quicktime X can do almost nothing that Quicktime 7 pro can do. Quicktime X is honestly barely a player for the amount of options that it gives you :/ Let's hope that this is something that is addressed in Lion. I'd hate to think that Quicktime 7 was the last quicktime to give you the ability do things like this.

It's beinng touted as a new feature in QuickTime for lion, so I assume it will be easier then.

Apple (Canada) - OS X Lion - Over 250 new features. Read about all of them.

It's funny how they can advertise this as a "new" feature ... I guess that's what happens when you take away a whole bunch of abilities for a version and then slowly re-introduce them. It doesn't look like it does as much as Quicktime 7 Pro does though, but only time will tell.

Of note, for say when Lion comes out and we lose QuickTime 7 Player (vs the feature anemic QuickTime X Player) you can use MPEG Streamclip to do just this. Under Edit, go to to Rotate Video and select your option - CW or CCW.
