>> Can I rotate videos with GOM Media Player?


As of the GOM Media Player 2.2.56.5181 release, you can rotate video images clockwise by 90, 180, and 270 degrees. This feature is useful for watching videos that were taken with mobile devices such as iPads, Android Tablets, and Smart Phones.


The fastest way to enable rotation is by using the keyboard shortcut:
[Ctrl] + [Shift] + [S]

This keyboard shortcut will cycle through each of the rotation settings one by one. That means if you're watching a video at it's default settings, pushing [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [S] will rotate it 90 degrees clockwise. Pushing the shortcut again will enable 180 degree rotation. Pushing it a third time will enabled 270 degree clockwise rotation. Finally, using the keyboard shortcut a 4th time will return the video to it's default rotation (in other words disable the rotation feature).

You can also set rotation directly by right-clicking on the video playback area, selecting "Video" from the menu that pops up, going to "Rotate", and then selecting the amount of rotation you want to apply.

The third way to enable rotation effects is from the software's Video Preferences window.
- Launch GOM Media Player
- Open the Preferences window (push F5)
- Select "Video" from the list on the left
- Go to the "Video" tab
- At the bottom of the window under the "Video Control" heading, click the pop-menu next to "Rotate" and select the amount of rotation you want to apply.

Things to remember about the Rotation feature:
1. The Rotation feature cannot be used at the same time as the Flip or Mirror features.
2. The same rotation settings will be applied to all videos until the current instance of GOM Player is closed.
3. The Rotation feature is part of the Gretech Video Filter, and therefore will only work when watching videos that play using the Gretech Video Filter. Most notably, the feature will not work when watching DVDs or playing SWF files. 

Please see the FAQ below for a list of features that will not work when the Gretech Video Filter is not in use:
