Video Rotate allows you to turn videos!

Do you sometime use your photo camera or your iPhone to take videos ? Did you ever take a video verticaly by mistake ? Video Rotate allows you to turn it back in the correct direction, for easier viewing and editing.

Video Rotate currently works with .mov, .m4v, and .mp4 files. Other files that can be opened by QuickTime Player (such as .avi files), can be transformed to .mov files using the 'Save as...' feature of QuickTime Player.

What's New in Version 1.0.2

✓ You can now save as a new file or in-place
✓ Fixed a bug with certains mov files

Does what it says...

...but it doesn't bother to maintain any metadata about the original file. If we drag in a video clip from iphoto, even if we select to save the file in the same place, the new file that is created as ouput of this program loses geographical location, date of creation, etc. This causes iphoto to treat it as a brand new file, and it is difficult to reset all these properties by hand (if even possible for the average user).

I would give 5 stars if the program would literally do as one would expect and simply rotate a video's orientation without having to muck around with creating and organizing new files and restoring metadata by hand.

Worked on .mp4 file but not .mov file for me

In the end I got it to work, but I had to convert my .mov file to a .mp4 for it to work properly. The .mov file rotated inside the existing aspect ratio, rather than rotating the entire canvas 90 degrees as I needed it to. Once I converted it to an MP4 the video rotated the canvas 90 degrees succesfully.

Doesn’t do anything

I have tried this with MOV files, with MP4 files and with M4V files and it literally does nothing. You press the button to rotate and nothing happens apart from it saving a duplicate file (if yoiu’ve chosen that option). Their customer support is unresponsive and they offer no refunds.
