Rotate Video On Windows Media Player
First, back to the key point, is it possible to rotate a video in Windows Media Player? Unfortunately, there is no native way to do this.
While countless users are talking about this normal and useful feature, Microsoft still hasn’t implemented its own way to rotate videos in Windows Media Player.
To rotate a video, you must rely on Windows Media Maker.
Windows Media Maker is the default media editing software for Windows PC users. It allows you to edit the video and rotate the video in it.
In this case, you can rotate the video in Windows Movie Maker and then play it in the desired orientation in Windows Media Player.
The following guide will show you how to rotate a video.
Step – 01
First, you need to download and install Windows Movie Maker. For Windows 10/8/7 PC users, you can download it directly from the Microsoft official page.
If you are using Windows XP, Vista, or an earlier operating system, Windows Movie Maker is already installed on your computer by default.
Step – 02
Launch Windows Movie Maker and click Add Videos and Photos on the Home toolbar to add the video you want to rotate. After adding a video, you can play it for a few seconds to understand how to rotate it.
Step – 03
Click the “Tools” menu and select the “Editing” option. There are many effects offered in the middle of the screen, including Rotate Left and Rotate Right.
This allows you to rotate the video 90 degrees clockwise or counterclockwise. When you get the right angle, click the “File” menu and then click “Save Movie” to output the video in the appropriate format.
Windows Movie Maker automatically transcodes and saves the rotated video for playback on your computer, iPhone, Android phone, and more.
