Rotate Video

Easily rotate, turn, and change degrees of a video online

Rotate any video online the way you want

Sometimes we record video in portrait mode, but the camera sensor doesn't detect that we filmed in a different orientation. This causes videos to come out sideways, or even worse, upside down. In those situations, rotating a video is essential to improve our audience’s viewing experience.

Kapwing’s online video rotator lets you mirror, flip, and change the orientation of a video without downloading any complicated software. You can turn your video 180 degrees however many times you’d like or add more video effects all in one place — no video editing experience needed. Once you’re finished editing, Kapwing will automatically process your project, allowing you to save the rotated video and share it anywhere.

How to Rotate A Video

  1. Upload your video

    Upload a video, image, or GIF directly to Kapwing. You can also paste a link to a video from Youtube, TikTok, or other video source.

  2. Rotate and adjust

    Use the easy controls to flip, mirror, or rotate your video. If you want to rotate it only a few degrees, you can use plus or minus buttons to slightly adjust your video.

  3. Download and share

    Just hit Export, and your rotated video will be produced in just a few minutes.

Change Video Orientation Online

Start by uploading your video file or pasting a link to the YouTube video. You can then immediately make changes to the rotation by using the transformers at the ends of your video layer. However, your edits don't have to stop there. Once you've found the perfect rotation, use the sliders or the timeline to change the start and end time, make cuts, or shorten your video. You can split a layer into parts and remove the middle section from the video, or duplicate parts of the video to create a loop.

Once you Export the trimmed video, Kapwing will process the rotation edits and give you a saveable MP4 version of the video clip. Preview the final video by pressing play and make any other edits you need. Then, download the MP4 file directly or share the URL with friends to send the trimmed part to someone else. You can also “Edit” the trim if you need to make timing adjustments.

This free online rotate tool works for any image, video, or GIF. It's perfect for times when you accidentally film something the wrong direction or want to make a landscape video for IGTV or TikTok. Make a mirrored collage to add artistic flair with a cool video effect. With Kapwing, you have infinite degrees of creativity, literally!

Best online video service ever. And a miracle for deaf people.
[Subtitler] is able to autogenerate subtitles for video in almost any language. I'm deaf (or almost deaf, to be correct) and thanks to Kapwing I'm now able understand and react on videos from my friends :)

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
