I just downloaded and created a DVD using DVD Flick. When I played back the DVD the movie segments came back sideways. It was created from movie from my iPhone SE. Any help?

DVD Flick has no way to reorient your video so it goes to the default. Bet you shot the video vertically rather than horizontally.
As far as I know, Quicktime Pro is the only software that will rotate your original file without re-encoding.

Yup. It was a concert. Anyway to convert to a landscape image?
Or any other FREE software to create a playable DVD?
Thanks. I used XMedia to rotate. When I go to another clip is goes back to sideways. Do I have to save it somehow with a different name?
When you have done the rotate you press the "Add to queque" (+) icon and then "Encode" icon. This will encode a rotated DVD complaint version that may be used for making a DVD without further encoding.
Thanks so much. I hope I can handle it from here. I appreciate your help.
I can only add
i have cautioned numerous people 'in person'
hold the phone sideways, like any other normal video camera
correcting the video later, leaves a lot of black space on the screen, unless you want to crop the video, and remove a lot of the recorded content from the frame
Thank you. I will try to remember that next time.
From the screen dump from XmediaRecode that the "Rotate" filter is disabled, ie no rotation is done.
But another proposal:
Create a NTSC project without a template. Drag "02 Som Guys Have All the Luck.mov" onto the empty menu (1). Double click on "Title 1" in the bottom of the window (2). Click the three dots for video (3).
On the Video Property windows that pops up use "rotate" for Filter. Select "Border" (= padding) and use a value of 244 for each side (16:9 aspect)
For 4:3 aspect use 208 for border.
Press the "Burn" icon and select "Just generate" or "create iso image". Test it with a software player like VLC and burn with ImgBurn or the burner of your choise.
PS I forgot. There's a bug in some versions of VLC. If you get a "grey" screen for the menu look here:

I too have had this issue, now...with this Xmedia, what dimensions should I use? I used the MP4 selection, and well, I tried all of what the program offered on the format, I noticed the quality was not as good at all as the original movies. All of mine are MP4 downloaded from a samsung phone. I have used Roxio 10 DE..no luck..Roxio Easy CD & DVD...nothing and well, I tried DVD Flick along with Img Burn and in at least it played on my DVD player but all on their sides. Get this..All of the MP4 play in VLC perfect and vertical, however...the one video I did rotated in Xmedia...I played it in VLC and their it was...on its side...LOL!. I have been up down, over under, in and out of all these programs trying to get these movies to play. If I can get the dimensions a little more secure, maybe the video's will be more clear. Now...I don't know what program to burn these with..one of the 3 I have above? I have used up enough DVD-R and DVD+R...I don't have any DVD DL in which I don't know what these are...Roxio Easy CD DVD burner required these or no go. I am seriously considering purchasing Nero express 4 2018...but its a killer on money...Surely it will do all that is required without all of the extra Additives...why is this so hard?
