I was recording a video on an iPhone and I had it "upside down" by mistake, meaning the camera was in the bottom-right corner rather than the top-left.
When I watch the video on my Mac in Quicktime, the orientation is fine, anyway, but when I watch it in VLC, then it is upside down. I want to fix the orientation because I want to convert the video from MOV to MP4, and this would also make it upside down (because it loses the orientation/rotation metadata that the MOV file contains, to properly orient the video).
How can I properly rotate the video so that it looks correct?
I tried a few methods already, but none worked. For instance, I tried this (Can HandBrake flip/rotate a video?), but that didn't work for me. I also tried this ( video captured from iphone gets rotated when converted to .mp4 using ffmpeg ) but I got a few errors in Terminal when running the commands, like regarding experimental features, etc.
