This might be a technical question, but it's not a programming question. Just something I'm wondering about, and maybe some of you can present me with an explanation.

It's quite common nowadays that you use your mobile phone to record a video clip, often in mp4 format.

I have seen some examples now that such a clip is shown correctly in some players but rotated 90 degrees to the left in other players.

I've got an example right now. The missus asked me to help one of her compter illiterate colleagues. Ha had recorded a video in portrait mode and it shows in landscape mode rotated 90 degrees.

I tried it for myself, and sure enough: In Windows Media player, it shows fine, but when I view it in VLC it is rotated.

Can anyone explain this? And how the fluck do I get it to play correctly in all players? Apparently it's now a question of merely rotating it as I started out thinking... Confused | :confused:
