Is there a way to rotate a video image 90° in Windows Media Player (WMP)?
I periodically receive video files of my 18 month-old grandson. The files generally arrive as an attachment to an email. However, when I double-click to play the video (either directly from the email or after saving the video file to a folder on my hard drive), it plays sideways in WMP. In other words, the video image needs to be rotated 90° in a clockwise direction to be appropriately oriented.
The video files have an .mov extension which I looked up and found to be Apple QuickTime — but my system is a PC running Windows 7. By the way, the sideways display is not an occasional occurrence but happens every time I open one of these files.
The best solution and my preference would be to find a way to rotate the image and then re-save the file in its rotated configuration. However, if that's not possible, what is the best solution to at least watch the videos in the correct orientation?
