mplayer is still a great program 🙂

how to rotate video
this is very usefull, because it is not always clear, what orientation the smart phone taken video might have
mplayer -vf rotate=1 ./filename.mp4 Rotates the image by 90 degrees and optionally flips it For values between 4-7 rotation is only done, if the movie geometry is portrait and not landscape. 0 Rotate by 90 degrees clockwise and flip (default). 1 Rotate by 90 degrees clockwise (no flipping of sides) 2 Rotate by 90 degrees counterclockwise. 3 Rotate by 90 degrees counterclockwise and flip.
