"Some of my iPhone 5 videos play sideways on my computer (Window 8). Is there any easy way to rotate the videos so it plays correctly?"

If you hold your iPhone vertically, the way you talk on the phone, the recorded video will in 9×16 aspect ratio and plays sideways on the computer or HDTV screens, which expect your video to be 16×9 aspect ratio. Videos recorded in landscape mode could be upside down if the home button is on the left hand side. There is an easy way to fix this problem, with the help of some third-party software to make it work. The steps that follow will help you rotate iPhone video to make it play correctly on your computer or big screen TV.

Thanks, Upset User, for alerting me to that, or I might have missed it. NOT COOL.

I don\'t appreciate the fact that they wait until you install the FREE version to tell you that a watermark will be installed throughout the video unless you buy it. Just because of this - I will uninstall it and I don\'t care if it is free. I won\'t be using this.
I really appreciate this information regarding why it is that I CONTINUALLY get sideways videos from two people who send me iphone videos all the time. So, please let me know if I am correct . . . .the i-phone should be held horizontally, NOT vertically. YES? If so, I still have one more question . . . should the top of the phone (where your ear is placed when speaking on the phone) should the top be facing RIGHT or LEFT???? Thanks so much for your answer.
