While there are numerous video editing applications spread throughout the vast worldwide web, only a few of them manage to break the ice and stand out. I, for instance, needed such a piece of software to rotate a QuickTime video on PC and Mac. It was necessary because the video was shot while the phone was held vertically. The aspect ratio of a phone screen is usually 9x16, whereas a widescreen PC monitor uses a 16x9 ratio that can sometimes contradict with different videos. How do I rotate a video in QuickTime? This particular issue can be easily solved by using a third-party video editing software. Doing so, you can easily rotate QuickTime video of any type in just a few moments.
