I'd like to use HandBrake to compress some video that was taken via a camera that was mounted upside down.
I found a reference to a command-line
rotate option, but I can't find it in the GUI.
Am I just missing it?
From the Handbrake documentation:
To rotate 90° I used:
with success. No luck getting this to work from the GUI.
note: I'm not sure why the above referenced blog post says:
"3" is said to be default and as such should do no rotation at all. I've found this to be true.

Behaviour of "n"
1 : x flip

An alternative might be to use the latest VidCoder beta, which uses the HandBrake engine and has in-GUI support for rotation and reflection (with previews):
In Winx64 0.9.9.5530 the syntax is:
No leading or trailing comma, space, etc.
I've tried putting
into the box in the Video tab under Optimise Video: Extra Options box.
It worked and flipped my video on the XY axis (180 degree rotation).
for the latest version of handbrake (0.99) I was able to achieve a 90 deg rotation by putting:
It doesnt work without the initial comma and without the space, (took forever to figure that out, as the documentation made no mention of that!
From a recent post iPhone video rotation (and compression)
While this refers to a Mac OS-X platform, I guess it should work for you too. Find a mencoder binary for your platform.
