How to rotate an upside .mov

Took some video's on my cell phone, turned out I was holding the phone upside down. Now how do I get it upright? Unlike still pictures, there is no option to rotate it.

"Turn your monitor upside down or better still stand on your head and watch" says one in yahoo answers.

Jokes apart, one easy way of flipping a video is to use Windows Live Movie Maker as whs suggested. But I understand that you may export the corrected video only in .wmv format. whs may correct me if I am wrong.

You may also use the Rotate function in the EDIT menu of Freemake Video Converter and export it to the format of your choice.

Both methods may involve a drop in quality, depending on the original footage and the settings used.

You may also try Free Video Flip and Rotate Free Video Flip and Rotate: rotate video, flip video!

Note: I haven't used any so far for that purpose, so do not hold me guilty.

Let us know what you did and how it worked.

Well if you don't want It to be much complicated for a short term you try the following :

Press, control+alt+down arrow

This will turn your monitor upside down. Ofcourse it will be difficult to control the mouse.
You can turn it back to normal by pressing control+alt+up arrow.

You can also use Format Factory. After you selected the video, go to the 'Output Options' button and then to 'Advanced' (all the way on the bottom).
