I've been having the same problem. I keep forgetting I don't know how to rotate the movies, but continue to turn the camera. I'll get right on it! PS. I hope Cecil and Ole don't get together. Ole does the daily airing ALL day, unless I let him outside, of course.


Oh, the busy busy life of a cat.

I finally figured out how to rotate movies. In QuickTime, choose Window>Show Movie Properties. In the properties window, select a video track and click Visual Settings. Click one of the rotate buttons. Viola!

These are Mac instructions but they're probably similar for Windows.


Thanks, Sara! The instructions for Windows seem similar, but the problem is that I don't have QuickTime Pro, I just have regular free Quick Time. So it won't let me do that operation. Boo! Another reason why Mac is so much better for media...


OK, I was all set to make some snarky comment about Mac vs. Windows, and then I remembered that I paid to upgrade to QuickTime Pro, too, because of something else I wanted to do. But as I remember, it wasn't very expensive. Maybe $30?


Ha! Cecil's a punk


Hi--now I know wh I did not watch it--I do not have media player yet!

This week in local eating

  • 6.4.10: From our garden, we're eating chard, greens, radishes, strawberries, and heaps of herbs. At the farmer's market we're buying the usual: eggs and lots of goat cheese.
