Is there a media player that can be told to a)ignore rotational metadata b)pay attention to rotational metadata?
For example, suppose I have a file blah.mp4 http://ge.tt/5gTCUm13 (a small video file, 2.3MB)
It has no rotational metadata.
ffmpeg -i blah.mp4 2>&1 | find "rotat" returns nothing.
I create a blah2.mp4
ffmpeg -i blah.mp4 -metadata:s:v:0 rotate=90 -c copy blah2.mp4 So, instructing any player to rotate the video 90 degrees anti-clockwise.
Windows Media Player, ignores rotational metadata, and displays the video blah2.mp4 oriented the same as blah.mp4
VLC, follows the metadata, and rotates the video 90 degrees anti-clockwise.
Both are useful features to me.. As I may want to see what the video looks like when not following rotational metadata, or when following rotational metadata. I can use WMP when I want metadata ignored, and VLC when I want metadata followed.
But is there a video playing program that has an option so that it can be set to either i.e. xor a) ignore rotational metadata (i.e. just as windows media player does) , or b) follow rotational metadata ?
