Wordpress Video Player: Rotating videos?

  1. Now that the iPhone 3G S supports video, we're having trouble posting those videos.

    The dimensions on the videos recorded with the phone is 360x480...so you've basically got a vertical video. But what happens is the wordpress video player rotates the video.

    Any idea how I can get it to play videos with the correct orientation?

    The blog I need help with is theappleblog.com.

  2. Ahh, I'm having the same issue! If you figure it out...shoot an email!! And I'll do the same. : )

    Good luck!

  3. Don't put your email in a forum. Spammers will grab it and nobody here will email you the answer anyway. Forum questions are answered in the forum.

  4. It looks to me at this point that you cannot rotate the video without doing it with another program prior to uploading to wordpress.com. I actually did this with one video already using iMovie and Quicktime.

  5. It's an Apple issue, and hope Apple will fix this.

    Youtube fixes this somewhat. Before Apple fixes this, we will look at how we could do that using ffmpeg. So currently the best option is to rotate it using a desktop client program before uploading to WordPress.com.
