In this post, we will help you rotate videos using some free video rotator software and online tools. You can set the rotation angle to 90 degrees clockwise or anticlockwise, 270 degrees, etc. If some video is upside down or its orientation is portrait or landscape and you want to change it, then these tools might come in handy. You will be able to save the rotated video and there will be no watermark in the output.
While there are some free media players that let you rotate the video, those tools don’t help to save the output with rotated angle. For that, the tools covered in this post are helpful.
