I would like to rotate a video that was shot in a vertical orientation. The resulting video should rotate the video, but not crop the original. The quality should be as close to the original as possible and the process should not take an unreasonable amount of time to complete. I would appreciate any suggestions. I am new to codecs etc. and I have tried three approaches so far:
OpenShot has an easy to use way to rotate videos, however, it crops the top and bottom of the video, so it is not useful to me for the current task.
I am awaiting the results of the following command:
The processing for this command is taking far too long for my purposes (it's been over an hour processing a 25 second video).
ffmpeg -i video_1.mp4 -vf "transpose=1" video_2.mp4
I have not yet had success with MEncoder. I ran the following command:
This produced the following output:
mencoder -ovc lavc -vf rotate=2 -oac pcm video_1.mp4 -o video_2.mp4
I am unsure how to proceed. I would appreciate assistance. Thank you.
