Sorry to tell you folks but this doesn't do the trick permanently, only as long as you're viewing the video. If you do all of the above (and I did) and then open the new video file in another player, it still has the original false rotation settings.. pity

I can't seem to think why I would want to rotate a movie.... unless its to view it while lying down on the bed looking sideways?
