Editors' review

Flipping images is almost as easy as flipping burgers, but DVDVideoSoft's Free Video Flip and Rotate tackles a harder job, flipping and rotating videos in every axis: left, right, vertical, horizontal, 180, counterclockwise, and so on. It can change the orientation of video clips or restore the correct orientation of videos that have been altered. Of course it's free, or it probably would be named something else besides Free Video Flip and Rotate! It's ready for Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8.

Free Video Flip and Rotate is totally easy to use. The user interface looks like a big media player with a split screen and an extra set of controls next to the standard Play controls: a bunch of arrows pointing up, down, side to side, and so on. These are the flip and rotate presets. They aren't labeled, even when hovering the cursor, but they're easy enough to figure out. We browsed to a video to load into the Input field, and then browsed to and selected a destination for our finished video. Clicking "Play" displayed our video at an accelerated frame rate in the side-by-side Input and Output displays: We simply had to click an arrow to flip or rotate our video until it looked right, and then press "Stop." Pressing "Save Video" started our job from the beginning of our video. Free Video Flip and Rotate worked quickly, displaying a green progress bar. When the job was done, we clicked "Show in Folder" and opened our saved, renamed video, which played normally in our usual media player, though in this case, "normally" meant rotated 90 degrees, clockwise.

Free Video Flip and Rotate has but two options: Auto shutdown and a menu full of interface languages, plus the ability to check for updates. There's no Help file on the interface, but the program's Web site has a detailed user guide. Mouse-over labels for the presets and a Help file link to the manual would really make this tool stand out. As it is, Free Video Flip and Rotate makes flipping video clips as easy as flipping JPEGs.

    "Ruined my videos"

    August 10, 2014   |   By Torgg2

    Version: Free Video Flip and Rotate 2.1.9.822

    Pros

    It did flip/rotate my .mov vids

    Cons

    All my videos that I flipped/rotated are now 1 second long and I foolishly saved over the originals. PISSED OFF. Also, I declined all the addons when installing but it still redirected my Chrome start up page to AVG Secure Search.

    Summary

    Beware. DO NOT SAVE OVER YOUR ORIGINAL FILES.

    "Perfect! Ignore the people saying this is bad."

    July 20, 2014   |   By kufo60

    Version: Free Video Flip and Rotate 2.1.9.822

    Pros

    First, to the people saying the program is bad because it "installed malware", you aren't very bright. The installer comes with 100% OPTIONAL software you can install alongside the program. Simply click "Decline" next to the software you aren't interested in installing, and select "Custom installation" and uncheck boxes saying you want to install other software.

    With that out of the way, the program itself does exactly what you'd think. After you select a video from your file browser, you can choose to rotate it in a number of ways and mirror the video, as well as a few other options I didn't play around with. It's simple and easy to use, and works well.

    Cons

    There are no cons.

    Summary

    Great program. If you just want to rotate a video but don't want a whole video editing software package, get this.

    Updated on Jul 20, 2014

    You can opt out of installing all the "adware" you're talking about. You just click "decline" and select "custom installation" to uncheck any boxes agreeing to install software. Pay better attention next time.

    @lkojio I laughed at your story. You sound like the kind of person a computer repair business loves. Totally unable to solve simple problems, and completely ignorant of their causes. I'm sure anyone will be happy to take money from you to "fix" your problem.

    "Wish there were stars that go into the negative!"

    June 07, 2014   |   By tmkgls

    Version: Free Video Flip and Rotate 2.1.9.822

    Pros

    NONE AT ALL!!!

    Cons

    WARNING - DO NOT DOWNLOAD "FREE VIDEO FLIP AND ROTATE"!!! ADWARE (AND POSSIBLY MORE), OTHER PROGRAMS INSTALLED WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE OR THE ABILITY TO HAVE THEM NOT BE INSTALLED IS WHAT YOU WILL END UP WITH!!! I DID NOT EVEN RUN THE PROGRAM - I IMMEDIATELY UNINSTALLED IT AS WELL AS THE OTHER PROGRAMS IT INSTALLED!!!

    Summary

    WARNING - DO NOT DOWNLOAD "FREE VIDEO FLIP AND ROTATE"!!! UNLESS - you LIKE having additional programs installed (other than the ones they DO let you uncheck) AND you like Adware (and maybe MORE) that AVG warned me to remove immediately DURING the INSTALLATION AND you like the Adware popping up on your desktop, then by all means download and install "Free Video Flip and Rotate"! They don't tell you they are going to install other programs along with it. I ended up with adware and my AVG popped up warning me of threats WHILE it was installing. I immediately uninstalled "Free Video Flip and Rotate" as well as the other programs it installed - one was called "Driver Updater" (something like that). Even though AVG removed the threats during install, I now will HAVE to run a FULL scan of my ENTIRE laptop!!!

    "Does what it says"

    March 04, 2014   |   By prodigalx

    Version: Free Video Flip and Rotate 2.1.9.822

    Pros

    Simple to use.
    Free.
    Works with a variety of formats

    Cons

    No way to fine tune rotations.

    Summary

    I have only used the program so far with MOV files downloaded from an iPod, and it rotated every file easily and quickly. The rotated files come out slightly smaller, so there must be some loss of resolution, though I can't see a difference.
