How to mirror a video easily

When we talk about "flipping" footage, we usually mean vertically. This means turning it upside down (though you'll usually flip a movie when it's already upside down and you want it right-side up).

"Mirroring" a video is usually a horizontal reflection. If someone in your clip is walking from the left side of the screen to the right, mirroring it will make them walk from the right to the left. This can be useful for all sorts of reasons; maybe you need to make multiple videos consistent. Or you think the recording would look better if it was mirrored. Maybe you recorded it in a mirror.

Whatever the case, you can solve these problems in just a few seconds. Let's take a look at how to turn a video 180 degrees with Online Video Flipper by Clideo.
