    anytime i copy over videos from my smartphone to my windows 7 pc they are sideways, i then have to use an app to rotate them the issue i find is that i lose display of the the video since it goes from one ratio to another. from a square to rectangle shape when rotating with the free app. how do i avoid this from happening. do i need to change the display mode on the phone? landscape mode? i typically take video and pictures with my android moto turbo phone with the camera face up and not sideways.

    The problem is that you're taking the videos in portrait mode, which people really try to discourage these days. Portrait mode videos in widescreen are unwieldy, and don't match the proportions of a typical monitor or TV screen. Is there a reason why you'd rather not take the video in the conventional landscape mode?

    I had the same problem today. This might sound stupid but how do I take a video in landscape mode? Is it just as simple as turning the phone sideways? Because I could not find any settings in the camera app to change to landscape mode.

    Yes, hold the phone in landscape orientation when you take the video. The current Google Camera app (the one that comes on Nexus devices) even has a warning reminder that comes on if you take a video in portrait orientation, suggesting that you turn the phone to landscape orientation.

    well for landscape mode takes 2 hands i know really! on the fly recording is easier with potrait mode but i will try landscaping more if this is why the videos need to be rotated. thanks guys
