Yes we really need that, it's a very basic thing that would keep me from having to use a 3rd party product.

Being able to rotate .mov files would make viewing much easier for the new new limited editing feature in lightroom 4 and for editing the file in premier and premier elements

I just find another easy method here to rotate video 90 degree, 180 degree, 270 degree.

I prefer its rotate video without reencoding featrues or rotate video as well as convert to other video format like rotate MOV to AVI.

I support rotate video in any format like MP4, MOV, AVI, AVCHD, WMV, MPG, ProRes, etc.

Here is the step by step guide at http://www.idealshare.net/video-conve...

The rotate 90 degree button does not work for videos in Lightroom!

This is a such a simple feature and has been part of the free Picasa for 10 years, so makes no sense it is greyed out :(

At least viewing rotate would be better than nothing if adobe has a problem about exporting video!

Me Too. Especially since Lightroom Classic ver 7.2 does not play well with iPhone .MOV videos or "Live Photo" videos - it inverted all in my catalog. Now I regret importing them into Lightroom. They were fine in ver 7.0. Lightroom has always not played nice with capture time codes from an iPhone also. I have to import then shift all videos because it uses GMT and ignores iPhones time zones during the capture.

Me too. Hopefully this 7.2 change is a bug and will be corrected soon.

Avdshare Video Converter is your best choice to rotate MP4 files in sideways or vertical side as well as rotate videos in other formats like MOV, WMV, FLV, MKV, AVCHD, MPEG, DV, ASF, etc.

Being able to rotate videos in lightroom would be great. After I started using lightroom I thought this feature is included and uploaded all my videos. Now I've to delete them, convert them with a 3rd party tool and reupload them... Please add this basis editing feature.

Avdshare Video Converter can easily rotate the iPhone video 90 degrees, 180 degrees, 270 degrees. Except for rotating iPhone video, Avdshare Video Converter also works to rotate Android video, any FLV, MP4, MKV, etc or edit iPhone video or any other video in other aspects: crop, split, merge, change video resolution, codec, volume, bitrate, sample rate, etc.
