How to Rotate Video with VLC Media Player

Step 1: Open VLC Media Player

Open the VLC Media Player from your chosen device.

Step 2: Access ‘Tools’

From the VLC Media Player menu at the top of the screen, click on ‘Tools’ and then ‘Effects and Filters.’

Step 3: Go to the ‘Video Effects’ Tab

In the ‘Effects and Filters’ window, click on the ‘Video Effects’ tab.

Step 4: Go to the ‘Geometry’ Tab

In the next section, click on the ‘Geometry’ tab.

Step 5: Check the Textbox That Says ‘Transform’

Check the textbox that says ‘Transform’. Once you do that, you will see a list of options that you can use to rotate your video. Rotation options include turning a video at 90 degrees, 180 degrees, or even 270 degrees.

Step 6: Alternatively, Check the ‘Rotate’ Option

You can also decide to check the ‘Rotate’ option. Then you can use the dialer to rotate to an arbitrary position if you do not want a set rotation such as 90 degrees.

From the menu, click on ‘Media’ and then ‘Convert/ Save’, next click on ‘Add’ to add the rotated video, and then click on ‘Save’ to have the video permanently rotated.
