Video Rotate Free solves the problem of your iPhone or iPad incorrectly detecting orientation when shooting video and allows you to correctly rotate video.
Video Rotate Free rotates videos in your camera / import albums through 90, 180 or 270 degrees (compatible with most MPEG-4; .MOV, .MP4 format files).
This free version of the popular 'Video Rotate' provides free "fast mode" rotation and up to five seconds "slow mode", if you want unlimited use of slow mode please buy the full version of Video Rotate.
Fast mode - only the orientation flag of the video file is modified, no transcoding of data occurs. This mode is completely lossless and is compatible with iOS and Quicktime, however some media players (notably PC based) do not honor the orientation flag.
Slow mode - the video is decoded, rotated and encoded frame by frame. The resulting video file is compatible with all media players (and online services). Compression settings are duplicated from the original (hence file sizes will be similar). Limited to five seconds in Video Rotate Free, unlimited in Video Rotate.
Note that rotations to 0° are always carried out in fast mode as there is no frame rotation to be carried out.
Because of iOS security restrictions Video Rotate cannot remove the old video file, you must do this manually in the gallery.
Video Rotate can not rotate DRM protected movies or shows downloaded from iTunes.
Location permission (iOS 5 and lower)
In order to access your media library Video Rotate must first ask you for permission to 'Determine Your Location'. This standard Apple alert indicates that Video Rotate is asking for permission to access your media library which can include GPS location in metadata. Note that we never actually access the location information in your videos.
If upon first startup you select 'Don't Allow' your device will remember this and there is no way for us to ask for the permission again, you must enable permission in your device Settings -> Location Services.
