How to rotate MP4 video step by step

MP4 (MPEG-4 Part 14) is a container format developed by Motion Picture Experts Group. It is mainly used to store video and audio but besides can store text, subtitles and other data.

It is a lossless format which means that it uses a great level of compression so the files can be smaller in size than other formats with the same quality. It also improves viewing of the content over the Internet.

MP4 should not be confused with MP3 and M4A as they are used to store only audio.

Allright, let’s rotate your MP4 video:

  1. Upload a video

    First of all, go to the Online Video Rotator by Clideo and choose a file from any of your devices: Windows, Mac, Android or iPhone.

    If it is located on your Dropbox or Google Drive — no problem, you can add it from there too, just click the downward arrow and select the necessary option. You may want to upload a video from some other resource on the Internet such as YouTube — for that purpose paste the URL to the appropriate box in the dropdown menu.
