  By Olga Krovyakova - February, 19 2021

Nowadays video recording is a very frequent ritual of many people, if not a daily one. When shooting with an iPhone or Android phone, video camera or any other similar device it often turns out that the visual image is in the wrong orientation. The video was recorded upside down or the clip would look better if the video was flipped horizontally or vice versa flipped vertically. In such cases you would quite often need to flip a video in order to view it correctly.

4. Once your video is flipped you can preview it.

This function is available in the Video Splitter for all the formats but the original rotation information is read only for the MP4 files that have been loaded. The function will help you to flip an MP4 video manually . For all other formats the original rotation will not be applied but it can also be done manually.

This primarily applies to the files filmed on the phone. For example, when the video is shot in a portrait orientation. But please consider the following: if the file is in the MP4 format it will always be displayed with the correct orientation, since the Video Splitter reads and applies original orientation for an MP4 file automatically.

If the file is recorded in a different format the original rotation information will not be applied in the Video Splitter. In this case you can benefit from using the rotation function which will help to achieve the correct position in the preview window.
