How to Rotate YouTube Videos
It’s really very annoying to watch a YouTube video in an incorrect orientation. I come across lots of people in various forums who badly want to know how to rotate YouTube videos. Their problems are mainly divided into two categories. One is how to rotate an uploaded YouTube video; the other is to how to rotate a downloaded YouTube video. Now, for these two different situations, I will share some of my experiences.

It’s most likely for mobile phone users to rotate a video on YouTube because the videos uploaded a YouTube via their phones always seem to be the wrong way round. If you upload a YouTube video but it shows up upside down or sideways like the man above, you can use the YouTube’s “Rotate” video feature to turn the video the right way online. That’s how.
Step 1: Go to YouTube site and login to your account.
Step 2: Enter into “Video Manager” interface from your account. Here, you can have several options including “Video Editor”. Just click it to rotate your YouTube videos.
Step 3: Drag your wanted videos to the video editing area to begin editing. Move the mouse over the video. At this time, a “Rotate” icon will appear. Just click it to rotate your video to the right orientation and then hit “Save”.
Note: After you’ve successfully rotated the YouTube video and want to download the new video to your computer, you can use a smart tool to easily do it — AllMyTube (AllMyTube for Mac ). It’s free only for YouTube video download.
" I don't wanna upload a video because the fact that I actually took the video from youtube but the problem is the video is in vertical view so I have to keep my head at 90 degree can you suggest a software that I can use to rotate the video to 90 degree anti-clockwise? "
