Sure, QuickTime Pro. Rotate, flip, etce etc. Cheap, and everyone should have a copy of QT Pro.

This problem occurs when you have a video codec that is a close match, but not an *EXACT* match to the codec that was used when the movie was created. The first step is to check for updates to the codecs you have, and check the movie properties to see what codec it reports using.  Once you find the right codec, it is a simple matter of downloading this small file, installing it, and restarting your computer to have it take effect.  When you get the right codec, everything will be fine.

First get VirtualDub 1.5.1 from http://virtualdub.sourceforge.net/ then open the video in VirtualDub. Press CTRL-F, click on Add, click on rotate and then click OK. Select Around 180 in the window that pops up and click OK. You should be back at the Filters window so click OK. Lastly press F7 and choose the name to save the movie as and click OK.

Thats it!
