I have a friend whose daughter sent her an iphone vid that was shot as a vertical rectangle, not horizontal like a computer screen.
As it is of her grand-daughter, it is pure gold to her, but it displays sideways on her screen; even tho when she forwarded it to me, it displayed vertical (my default player is VLC).
Just wondering... is there is something like the 'Rotate' button found in most photo software, only that permanently works on phone vids?
(btw, she has an 'antique' XP Acer that I got running Ubuntu 14.4 LTS for her when her security suite support ended. Never save a computer's life, then you are always responsible for it. )

Do you plan on doing it yourself ? Do you know anything about videoprocessing ?
Something like ffmpeg can rotate videos easily, if you know CLI-based processing.
To Rotate 90 degrees clockwise:
ffmpeg -i INPUT -vf transpose=1 -c:a copy OUTPUT
ffmpeg -i INPUT -vf transpose=2 -c:a copy OUTPUT
You only had to search a bit more
Thanks guys, fast work!
'There will be more of these vertical videos from her granddaughter'
good point !:]
Depending on the model, it might actually be easier to just rotate the screen!
if you want to fix it and remove the black bars on the sides i recommend vidcoder. it has a manual crop with preview so you can judge how much to remove from both sides and a rotate 90 degrees function to make it display correctly. free and doesn't take too long to figure out. just make sure to turn on the 90 degree rotate before cropping or you'll be removing the wrong parts.--
