FlipShare is a boon to Flip video camera users. Just plug your camcorder into your PC or Mac USB port and the software will allow you to view your recorded video, edit and even share your video clips with friends and relatives via email or with the rest of the world by uploading them to YouTube, MySpace and AOL video, among others.
Among the editing features made available by FlipShare are add music, titles and of course trim your video and even grab snapshots from it. Despite its versatility, there’s one feature many users are deprived of from employing - the rotate feature.
How would you rotate a video you shot in a vertical mode in your flip camcorder when FlipShare doesn’t allow you to do that?
The best way to do it would be to export out your video and use video editing software that has the rotate feature.
If you are worried about incurring expenditure on the purchase of a video editing program, rest easy. If you’re a PC user, you could use Windows Movie Maker, which comes bundled with Microsoft Windows to fulfill your wish.
Windows Movie Maker has the rotate feature that could address the shortcoming in FlipShare. However, there’s a problem importing flip video into Windows Movie Maker. This is because Flip video comes in the MP4 format.
