How to rotate a video in VLC permanently? As an unprofessional photographer as i am, we quite enjoying shooting our digital camera and iPhone videos in a free style - portrait mode to landscape mode and back to protrait mode and on and on. The unconsidered frequent change of shooting modes can result in a big "OH, NO!" when you sit down and play back your recordings later on computers and TV sets. So, here we'd like to introduce you a quick method to rotate video using VLC media player the way you intended, both permanently and flexibly.

VLC Rotate Video not Working? How to Loop A Video?

5KPlayer provides the most straight-forward way for you to rotate a video file within one-click, without glitches or quality loss. And you can enjoy its fascinating quick response on both macOS and Windows Vista/7/8/10, dealing with any kind of rare video files.

How to Rotate Videos with 5KPlayer

To let VLC rotate video, there are mainly two choices:
1. Transform and rotate video according to given parameters >
2. Rotate video according to your own angle preferences >

VLC has its own video rotation idea – only rotate video display, but video will be rotated permanently only within VLC. After clicking "Save" button, VLC will remember the rotation angle preference permanently for this video, so that when you open the video next time, you do not have to make a second adjustment. However, this won't affect the video itself. Opening the video using VLC alternatives like Potplayer, GOMplayer, KMPlayer, the video will be played in its original mode rather than rotated version.

To thoroughly and permanently rotate a video, we recommend you WinX or MacX video converter. That software allows you to loop the video and save it as the rotated way. Click to learn how to rotate iPhone videos free with MacX video converter.
