AVI is a very common video formats nowadays. We obtain AVI videos in many ways: shot AVI video by cameras, download AVI movie online, get AVI files from family, friends, etc. Either way, you may have encountered such a situation: the AVI video appears sideways or upside-down. Here we give some examples:

  • I'm using a Canon SD550, which makes AVI movies. I've got a couple of such movies where the camera was held vertically rather than horizontally. They don't display correctly in iPhone or QuickTime.
  • Could you point me in the right direction? Just shot a video for my son's birthday party with a camera. The video is .avi format. When I play it on my computer, it shows upside down. So pesky.
  • I just recorded a video on my phone, but when I play it on my Mac it's in the wrong orientation.
  • I have an "AVI" file with its video 180 degrees inverted. I want it back normal i.e. again a 180 degrees inversion.
  • My wife has made a small video with her camera. It is an AVI file and has copied on to my P/C without any problem (from the camera). The AVI file plays fine but was filmed with the camera to the side.

There are endless examples like these. The only way out is to find a powerful AVI Rotator to rotate them to normal orientation.
