I shoot Videos with my phone Camcorder Vertically mounted in a Gimbal Stablizer, but when I drag the video files into my PC’s Video folder, the file is Horizontal! ..and if I were to post it on facebook, it posts Horizontally! Which then needs to be deleted, and Flipped in Edit, which I believe degrades the Videos quality! ..Does Anyone have an Idea why this might be happening?

I suppose it’s just convention – so when it sees the wrong orientation, it assumes a mistake – expecting that as standard output for youtube, Vimeo and facebook is widescreen horizontal. Shooting vertical is kind of unusual by design, and common by mistake. I don’t think I lose any quality when converting as the pixel count is the same.

“I suppose it’s just convention – so when it sees the wrong orientation, it assumes a mistake – expecting that as standard output for youtube,”
I see what you are saying about the Social Media pages defaulting to Horizontal format, but why is it when I take the file right from the phone to my PC, it’s in Horizontal format? Also are any of these Online Video Flipping Apps, better then another?
