If you are asking for rotate a video 90º or 180º, you should use avidemux.
And you're done.
You can also use ffmpeg and the commandline (taken from Rotating videos with FFmpeg):
And to rotate it horizontally (ffmpeg documentation):
Maybe your distro uses
Do you mean rotation on playback or converting it to a rotated version?
As a commandline-user I normally use mplayer:
Convert (requires transcoding):
And here is a graphical tool to do the latter: kdenlive (a kde application from the universe)
If you just want to view a movie in a different orientation, as of Totem 3.1.4 (in Raring 13.04 and beyond), there is a "rotation plugin" which you can turn on (edit/plugins), and then rotate e.g. via ctrl-r.
I think proper rotation should be automatic when there is rotation metadata, and I commented on a relevant Totem bug here: Bug 701950 – Iphone Movies
There are also ways to do this in mplayer (and to convert to a rotated movie with mencoder), e.g.
The best option (in my opinion!) is OpenShot, you simply follow these easy steps:
