Go to system-settings, click on "Software & Updates", and go to the "Aditional Drivers" tab. From there, you can select the "tested" proprietary nvidia driver.

Mencoder You can use Mencoder (Mplayer's encoded), that I recently found as a very good alternative to avconv.

As you've noted, they're fine for basic computing, but anything requiring hardware acceleration or 3D support like videos or games won't run well at all. In most cases you can solve the problem by searching "Additional Drivers" in the Dash. Then install the recommended ...

Read https://www.youtube.com/html5. Notice how it says only supported videos will be played in HTML5. However, some videos just require Adobe Flash Player. One thing you could try is clicking "Request the HTML5 player" if it is displayed on that page, then try again. If it still doesn't work or you don't see that button, you need Adobe Flash Player.

The answer is no with a maybe... The Library, "Video 4 Linux" detects whether a device is being used, and will not initiate. However; if you wish to download libv4l-dev and edit it manually, you can edit the code to get rid of this check and then just recompile it. I imagine you could get this to work, but it would be extremely unstable. May be worth ...

It is best to use avconv instead of ffmpeg (avconv is the ubuntu version of ffmpeg and it is more up to date - while anytime you run ffmpeg you should see that it is deprecated, it only exists for compatibility purposes and it is going to be removed in the future). All you need is to set a rather high video bitrate value when you apply the rotation. So, ...
