The smartphone is a great device for content consumption. In particular, thanks to the large screen, it can be used to watch videos. However, when playing it, the owner of the gadget can face a number of problems. One of them is the incorrect display of the frame, when, for example, a vertical video is launched in a horizontal format. To solve the problem, you need to figure out how to flip the video on the phone on the Android operating system.
First, it is worth noting that the rotation of the video clip is needed in different situations. If it’s about stretching the video over the entire screen, you need to use the auto-rotate function. It can be activated through the phone settings or the control center (the notification curtain). Also the rotate button can be present in the “Gallery”.
Another thing is when the video was originally filmed incorrectly or you just want to fix the picture in a certain position. In this situation, the Auto Rotate screen won’t help, and you’ll have to edit the video manually. However, there is nothing difficult about it. Many Android smartphones provide a similar option:
- Launch “Gallery”.
- Select the desired video.
- Press the “Edit” button.
- Select the “Flip” option and adjust the position.
- Press the “Save” button.
It is possible that the “Gallery” app on your smartphone does not have this function. In such a situation, you can use another program for viewing and editing videos – Google Photos. If you don’t have it, install the application via Play Market. If you want, you can also use other programs, which will be discussed below.
AndroVid Video Editor
Note right away that all the programs work on the same principle. Therefore, the instructions relevant to AndroVid Video Editor can be used in the case of other similar applications. This program is a good video editor with a user-friendly interface, thanks to which you can easily rotate the frame:
- Install AndroVid Video Editor via Play Market or APK file.
- Launch the app.
- Press the “+” button.
- Select a video.
- Tap the “Flip” icon.
- Choose a frame position.
- Save the resulting video.
Of course, there are other video editing tools available in AndroVid Video Editor. For example, you can apply music to your video or, for example, activate a filter that improves picture quality.
Important. AndroVid Video Editor and most other similar programs are conditionally free. That is, you can edit videos for free, but the output file will have a watermark. To remove it, you will have to pay a subscription.
Fast Video Rotate
The ultimate simple video editor with which you can mirror or rotate videos. Unfortunately, Fast Video Rotate has many disadvantages. For example, the interface of the program looks very outdated, since the last time the application was updated back in 2018. But the more significant disadvantage seems to be the paid distribution of the program. To download it through Play Market, you have to pay $ 1.08.
mVideoCut – video editor
Another fairly simple program with an outdated interface. However, its advantage is that mVideoCut is free and the output video is free of watermarks and other artifacts. However, there is one significant disadvantage of the application – it cannot be downloaded through Play Market. You will need to search for third-party sources to download and use an APK file to install it.
Rotate Video Tool
Utility with a catchy name, designed just to rotate the frame. To do this, it has a special button in the form of a circle with an arrow. By clicking on it, you will change the position of the picture by 90˚. The disadvantages of Rotate Video Tool are not the most modern design and the built-in advertising.
This program is for people who need to convert video from one format to another. At the same time, it will be able to rotate the video frame by frame. It works without any problems and the final result will be saved without any watermarks.
Video Editor: All in One
A worthy video editor option for people who want a free, convenient and functional tool. Like the previous application, Video Editor: All in One is able to convert video files, but we are more interested in the option to rotate the frame, which is also present here and is implemented by pressing the “Rotate” button.
A simple utility without watermarks and broad functionality. It is suitable for those who do not want to bother with the video settings, but just want to rotate the frame and immediately save the result. Unfortunately, you will have to pay to use Video Kit. For example, in Google Play Market the application is priced at $ 3. But there are a lot of resources on the Internet, offering to download Video Kit APK file without additional charges.
Vidstitch Free – Video Collage
A free editor whose main function is to create collages from several parts. The rotation option is here too, and it is implemented in a very convenient way. So, to change the position of the frame is enough to hold two fingers on the picture, and then independently make a turn. The picture will change its position, and you will only have to save the result.
One of the most popular video editors for Android smartphones. VivaVideo already has more than 100 million downloads in the Play Market app store, which shows that the program is in demand among users.
The application features a pleasant interface, a lot of features and free distribution. However, there’s no way to get rid of the watermarks if you’re not ready to subscribe for a fee. VivaVideo also opens up new video editing features for an additional fee.
