Tool for Rotating MPEG-movies?

Okay, so I may not be the smartest camera operator in the world. I shot some MPEG movies of my holiday with my Sony CyberShot DSC-S70, but for two of them, I held the camera in the vertical position. Since rotating the screen by 90 degrees is impractical, I am looking for:

an MPEG editing tool, preferably freeware, that lets me rotate the MPEGs so that the side becomes the bottom of the movie, etc.

Thanks!

PS: Since there's no other obvious topic, I assume this is the appropriate one...
PS2: If you conclude that this is a really stupid question, bear in mind that my knowledge of movie editing in general and MPEG in particular isn't much larger than 0%... (-:

QuickTime Player will rotate them. Once the movie is opened go to Movie->Get Movie Properties. Then find the Size tab which has rotation buttons. Click the appropriate buttons to rotate. Thats all there is.

I downloaded QT and tried what you suggested, weed - strangely enough, there are no rotation buttons in my Player, even though I can get Movie Properties and go to the Size option.
Also, QT Player doesn't seem to have Save functionality, and I want to change the file permanently, not for one viewing...

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

For simply rotating my low-Q holiday movies, I think 29.99 is not that cheap...

QT Pro does alot more than just rotate movies. When used right its a very cool editing utility. Lets you export to dozens of different formats. etc etc etc.
