    Question Video is sideways-how do I fix it?

    When I put video on the computer it's sideways. I guess I need to remember to hold my phone sideways when I record? At any rate, is there any way to fix what I've got and make it the right orientation? thanks

    Yeah holding it correctly would help
    There's probably some simple video edit ting software like windows movie maker that is capable of changing the orientation.

    Yea, just the general Movie Maker for Windows should be able to do that.

    Thanks everyone. I think I'll remember eventually. It might take a few sideways videos though.

    I was looking for an answer to this as well. If the camera is being held incorrectly, then why do all the videos upload onto social media sites correctly, but flip sideways on the computer? I'm sorry, but this answer is illogical. Does anyone have a better answer?

    It's the way there developed and set up. To automatically correct some of the most common mistakes people make.
    This allows for a better experience on these site.
    Microsoft is developed to make money thru your mistakes, and lack of knowledge in how to make things work properly (got to buy more software to get individual things to work as they should).
    Thankfully there are those who develop software that's free to counter act Microsofts money making scheem.

    I only use Windows for those programs that are specifically developed for Windows. I don't use the security swiss cheese Windows for Internet, instead I use a Linux Distro (no antivirus or malware programs needed)

    When u record, make sure the landscape mode is off in your Android smartphone..! That will help big time!

    Gale this may be old, but I did not find the answer so I researched and found that if you upload to your you tube cannel it has a rotators fix .

    I just experienced this problem with my new android RAZR. And I accidentally discovered the fix for it. If you're holding the phone sideways to get a "widescreen" film, then flip the phone 180 degrees. In my case that meant rotating it so the volume buttons on on the bottom edge, and not the top. So far every video has filmed correctly doing this.

    Thank you Brian, but I cannot find the landscape mode in my Galaxy S5. Do you know of any S5 settings that would allow me to take videos in the Portrait direction?

    On my LG G3 there is a button for "rotation". When the button is on, the phone automatically rotates. When it is off, it stays in portrait mode.

    The easiest solution is to turn off Auto Rotate in your phone settings. Try it! Sure you can convert the videos in many programs but it is time consuming.
