    I have some videos that were shot with my iPad2. Made the mistake of not holding the iPad right side up. Does anyone know how to change the orientation of a video so that it is right side up?

    Welcome to the forum! If you have a Mac with OS X 10.7 Lion you can rotate your videos in Quicktime. In the edit menu there are options that allow you to rotate your videos left, right as well as flip horizontal or vertical. There are probably other methods using other programs.

    Here's a webpage with some more suggestions:

    Others may chime in with their thoughts.

    Thanks for the help

    I appreciated the tip. I have Windows 7 and QuickTime. However I will need QuickTime Pro to be able to flip the videos. I found that Windows Live Movie Maker is able to flip the video. Thanks again for your help

    If you hold the iPad with the home button on the right when shooting videos while in landscape mode, it should solve your problems.
