QuickTime movies, or MOVs, are the standard format for Apple's QuickTime Player, as well as iPods, iPhones and other Apple products. Flipping your QuickTime movies upside down requires upgrading your free QuickTime 7 Player by purchasing the QuickTime 7 Pro component from Apple, which costs around £19 as of the date of publication. QuickTime 7 Pro allows you not only to flip movies upside down, but resize, edit and convert movies to different formats.
