As the name suggests, Movie Rotator is a program which enables you to change the rotation of movies. It supports only the MOV format, requires the installation of Quicktime and can be easily handled by users with no experience in this sort of software.
This type of application can be of assistance the moment your Quicktime movies are recorded from a wrong angle; this frequently happens with some mobile phone models.
The interface of the software tool is plain and uncomplicated. Loading a video can be done with the help of either the file browser or 'drag and drop' functionality.
So, you can preview the clip in a built-in media player and use two buttons to rotate it left or right by 90 degrees. Once the changes have been made, you can save them by clicking a button.
Unfortunately, Movie Rotator does not offer the possibility of saving the resulted clip to a new file, but simply overwrites the original one. However, the software application was unsuccessful in its attempt to save changes during our evaluation, although we have tested it with multiple files.
The program runs on a moderate amount of CPU and system memory, and has a very good response time. No error dialogs have been displayed during our testing and Movie Rotator did not freeze or crash. On the downside, the app comes with limited features. For example, you cannot rotate multiple videos at the same time. Unfortunately, Movie Rotator has not been updated for a long time.
