Rotate Video

The simple tool to rotate and mirror video online

Rotate a video easily with Kapwing

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

Want to rotate your video before posting? You've come to the right place. The online video rotator by Kapwing lets you mirror, flip, and change the orientation of a video without downloading any complicated software. It's free and easy to use.

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 the dots to slightly adjust your video.

  3. Download and share

    Just hit Export, and your final output 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. Then, 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 trims and give you a saveable MP4 version of the video clip. Preview the final video by pressing play and make any other edits you like (add a watermark, text, or subtitels for example). 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.

Rotate right or left. Flip sideways. Turn things upside down. Just upload a video or paste a link, rotate/mirror your video, and download your reoriented mp4.

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!
