    MP4 player software
    I need a MP4 player similar to Gom for Windows.

    What i need is the ability to flip the video that i'm playing as some of the clips are upside down.

    Anyone know of such a player?

    Thanks

    Assuming you have VLC installed in /Applications, try executing the following at the Terminal (the following is based off of the VLC wiki page here):
    Code:
    /Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC --vout-filter=transform --transform-type=hflip /path/to/file
    Replace /path/to/file with the path and name of the file. So, for example, if you had a file on your Desktop called example.mp4, execute the following:
    Code:
    /Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC --vout-filter=transform --transform-type=hflip ~/Desktop/example.mp4
    ~ is shorthand for your home directory.

    There may be an easier way through the UI but I have yet to find it. All of the explanations online do not work for VLC 1.0. My guess is that things have moved around or been removed.

    This flipped a regular movie upside down for me so I'm guessing it will flip upside down movies for you to a regular orientation.

    EDIT: Terminal.app can be found in /Applications/Utilities in case you didn't know.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm hoping there is an easier way.

    This can be done in Quicktime Pro.

    Not free but not too expensive.
