  • Open VLC and start playing video
  • Menu "Tools" > "Effects and Filters" > "Video Effects" > "Geometry"
  • Select "Transform" box
  • Choose desired rotation from list
Hope this helps.

Thank you Zill. How you are supposed to find that adjustment without help I do not know.With photo editing programmes it is so obvious.

pensioner77: I'm pleased you got this working. :-)

A web search will usually help find things like this... Would you now please mark the thread as solved to help any other users with a similar query. You need to edit your first post in this thread and add the prefix [Solved] to the title. Only the OP (Original Poster) can do this.

I love VLC and it is my go to video application on every platform, so solid, so reliable.
But...That being said the tools and controls in VLC are crazy obscure and difficult to figure out and could really use a major make-over by someone who knows how to make user friendly GUIs. If VLC was as easy to use as it is a great player it would rule the world.

trytip: See "VLC GPU Decoding":
VDPAU is supported for decoding since VLC version 2.1.0, and for post-processing and rendering since VLC 2.2.0 (still in development as of late 2013).

VDPAU will be enabled automatically by default in VLC version 2.2.0 onward. Refer to http://www.remlab.net/op/vlc-vdpau.shtml for technical details.

The following video codecs are supported for decoding: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 Visual (and possibly H.263), WMV3, VC-1 and H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC). Almost all video codecs are supported for post-processing and rendering.
