How to rotate a video on Mac

Once in a while we all get a video that was made vertically or sideways, and it just doesn't display properly. When you need to act fast and film with your phone or camera really quickly you don't always think about orientation. Some devices are really sensitive to your hand movement, some are not.

The most popular device by Apple does not provide an obvious switch. You can rotate the desktop screen, but that is not exactly what's needed.

This article will tell you how you can get a better video playback by rotating, flipping, or mirroring it and then view your improved video in Elmedia Player PRO. All these convenient features are provided by Elmedia Player PRO. This app supports 4K, HD, and standard videos, slo-mo or regular speed, etc.
