I have got a couple of mpg files captured in a digital camera in a portrait mode. Are there any free tools to rotate to landscape them?

Which operating system? – slhck Aug 1 '11 at 17:41

On Windows you can use VirtualDub

  • open mpg
  • in Video menu select filters
  • click Add and select rotate,
  • select rotation you want (left or right)
  • you will need to select compression for the film, since VirtualDub doesn't support saving to mpg, you can only save as avi, so basically try different settings in Video menu --> Compress
  • in File menu select Save as AVI to save the film

Thanks !!! The avi files are larger than the original files, but compressing them made them small. – Praveen Sripati Aug 2 '11 at 1:48

You can load them into Windows Live Movie Maker. They have a rotate tool.
