Video is upside down Android Samsung

Post by Udaloy »

My first video from yesterday plays fine. My second video is upside down. Same phone, same orientation. Petrolhead v24.0.4. It plays upside down on the lap timer and on YouTube. How do I fix it?

Is it possible you rotated the smartphone after starting video recording? Smartphones usually augment video recorded with some orientation information so players can rotate them correctly. This information is missing or is wrong for this video. You will need some video editor to either rotate the frames, or change the augmentation. LapTimer itself requires sound orientation information and has no rotation feature.

If I flip it with an editor, the track data is upside down.

:-) You need to flip the original video. When it is overlaid, it is too late.

I have a corrected video with no overlay. How do I get the program to overlay this new video?

Copy the flipped video to you smartphone. The place you can copy it to depends on your phone. Valid places can be seen in Video List - event section represents a valid directory.

Select a lap from Lap List belonging to this video / session. In case you see "Revert" in the video section, press this button. Select the (old) video from the Video section. Press the Re-Link button (two cam with one solid and one as a shadow). Select the flipped video from the list presented.
