How to Rotate a WMV File
Sometimes camcorder videos are rotated 90 degrees, making them difficult to watch. (Camcorder image by Edward Stephens from Fotolia.com)

Sometimes when you record something on your digital camcorder, you may flip the camera 90 degrees in order to get a better vertical view. However, when you do this, the video comes out sideways. This can be especially annoying if you were planning on exporting that video to a DVD or a media device. Thankfully most versions of Windows come with a program that makes it possible to rotate a WMV video and save the rotated version as a separate file.
