Edit .MOV

My Kodak digital camera takes video in a .mov (QuickTime) format only.

I took a movie holding the camera in the vertical position (instead of horizontal).

When downloaded to computer and played, the movie is "sideways".

How can I flip it 90 degrees counter-clock-ways?

The method I use is to WINAVI (look it up with then convert it to AVI. Next, the free tool called VIRTUAL DUB (google for it and instructions) can do a rotate.

You'll need the following tools

Super video converter (free)

Search at should return info on the following .

Haali media spliter
other codecs like xvid , ect
ffdshow (choose generic if you dont know system well)

Super video converter :
Drag mov into lower window .
In the three boxes above , 1 is avi , 2 is xvid , 3 is mp3 (default) , click encode .

You may change other settings , xvid gives good compression without losing quality .

This conversion requires faac , mp4box , ffdshow and haali media splitter to be installed first .

Now click play encoded video , if alls well , close super .

Open virtualdub , load the converted avi , goto video , sellect video filters , now hit add , go down and sellect flip , either horizontal or vertical , what ever is required , setup any other settings you need here , and always do a preview from the filter so you can guage if you are correct .

Now audio tab , full processing , then conversion , sellect 44.1khz , stereo .

Now goto File , save wav , name it , and include .wav on name .

After wav saved , goto audio tab , select wav source , locate wav file .

If you want to convert to mp4 format , audio compression should be mpeg layer 3 = 48kbits .

Video compression for mp4 format choose xvid , setup for dual pass for better encoding quality .

Info at , in forum search .

You can also add multiple filters if required .

Filters also include a resize , which is handy .

From this info , you shouldnt have mov issues from now on ...

If you need further help , goto , forum , post message in correct forum section , and I'll see it there and give you help .

For mp4 with aac audio like nero , to convert these too dvd , use divxtodvd , the free version only ...

This still has a high index searching for 'rotate .mov' but times have changed.

I found this little tool worked just fine and is free OSS.
