How to rotate iPhone videos taken in the wrong orientation

rotate iPhone video

People new to smartphones generally do mistakes while recording videos. We should always hold the phone horizontally. But if you keep it vertical, you will end up recording video in the wrong orientation. If you play it on iPhone, it will play properly. But if you upload these videos to YouTube or Facebook, it will not play in the same way. This is because recorded video was in portrait mode.

So, if you want to rotate the video recorded in the wrong orientation, you have many working ways. You can either do it in the computer or direct in your iPhone. If you do not want to use the computer in this, you can install available video editing apps which allow you to rotate the recorded video and achieve proper orientation.
