Video file rotation
« on: April 01, 2021, 11:44:00 AM »
Currently there is no option to rotate video in IMatch.

Why required?
Sometimes users start a video holding phone in portrait mode and then a few seconds into video realize it's better to be in landscape mode and rotate phone! The play software uses whatever orientation video starts.

It would be nice if rotate feature was available for videos in IMatch.

It's relatively easy to implement using ffmpeg:
ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -vf  "transpose=1" output.mp4

Transpose:
0 = 90CounterCLockwise and Vertical Flip (default)
1 = 90Clockwise
2 = 90CounterClockwise
3 = 90Clockwise and Vertical Flip

Perhaps for IM2021 or I could build an app (ugh!)  :(

Isn't it easier to just create an External Tool Favorite? ffmpeg would add another dependency to IMatch.

Yes of course. That will do the trick nicely.  :-[
