While I can size an application's window from the command line, there is no control to rotate just an app's window.

Is there more you can share? Such is this that old TELEPROMPTER application?

I see the question of the article was such but I wonder if you read the entire discussions on this. There are a few more and if you wanted to develop such, why not start?

Report the bug to the app author. Some apps do not play in any other rotation so the fix is the dual monitor as noted in the link given.
