  1. Hi there.

    I’m a little confused and was wondering of you could help me:

    I clicked on the ‘download’ for free button and have rotated all my iPhone 5 videos. When I try to export them now to my PC, the free version only allows the export to be a third of the size. As I refuse to pay $50 simply to rotate my iPhone videos, any ideas how I export them for free? Even on other software?!

    Many thanks in advance,

    1. Hi David,
      The Video Converter is a multi-functional video solution with limited features on the free trial version. Still you can use many of its useful features for free, such as burning videos, downloading videos, streaming videos, etc. You can use it to rotate videos on Mac or PC as well. However if you merely want to rotate iPhone videos, you can also refer to other alternative tools suggested in the “Extra Video Converting & Editing Tips” section from above guide.
