    Multi-platform alternative video converter.

    A friend asked if I know of a simple free video converter that would allow him to rotate a video without confusing him with too many options, so I went "Uh yeah Transmageddon is awesomely simple and good" and then he made it a little more complex by adding that strange proprietary OS into the mix, anyone know of a simple free video converter that is cross-platform and will allow him to use something very similar to Transmaggedon on a Linux box and a Windows (7) box.

    Ps. I'm not looking for a flame war, please just don't do that.
    Pps. I don't know if Handbrake can rotate but that seems to have ceased development, nothing updated on their PPA for 8 months,such a shame as that was awesome.

    Handbrake development still looks pretty active:

    https://github.com/HandBrake/HandBrake/commits/master

    The PPA only loads the release versions as far as I am aware...
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Yeah I had a conversation about it on IRC last night, they only update the PPA when they have a stable release so if there is no stable release since the latest version of Ubuntu was released then your out of luck and can only use the unstable PPA, can it rotate?

    Ah avidemux will do nicely, thank you afoin.

    Thanks for the suggestion of VLC but as far as I'm aware VLC will only filter a video for playback and can't save a copy of a modified video, correct me if I'm wrong.
