As is known to all, iphone comes with HD camera which make it shot videos in a very convenient and effective way . It is one of the best selfie tool. If you like the selfie and share selfie to facebook, I think you may have experienced this situation that sometimes the pictures/videos show sideways after uploading to facebook though they play correctly on iphone. This is because they are recorded in portrait mode you may have not noticed.

So is there a way to rotate the photos and videos easily? Sure. In this article, I will skip on how to rotate photos because you can do that within the iphone camera roll easily and I will mainly focus on how to rotate iphone videos.

Part 1Rotate iphone video on iphone

This is an easy and direct way. The first thing I would think of is imovie and you can use it on iphone 5C,5S, 6, 6 plus, however, it doesn’t come with all kinds of iphones for free. If you are an iphone 4,4s,5 user, you have to pay for imovie and I would not recommend. Besides imvoie, you can search more tools to rotate video from app store. The two following free tools are recommended.

  • Rotate video & Flip which is a free tool special for rotating and flip video.
  • Video Rotate Free which is another free tool for rotating videos.

After downloading from app store, you can run the app from the iphone and then you can follow the app screen wizard to rotate video easily.

Part 3 Rotate iphone video on windows PC

If you are a windows pc user, I am afraid there is not a free imovie and it is difficult to find a free tool to rotate iphone video. The free movie maker comes from windows( windows movie maker) doesn’t support iphone video. To rotate iphone video in windows PC, you need a third party video editing software Wondershare Filmora(originally Wondershare Video Editor) especially if you want to do a lot of other editing to your iphone videos such as trim your video, add background music, apply video effect to enhance your iphone videos.
