  • Click on Tools > Effects and Filters (or just press CTRL + E).
  • Click on Video Effects > Geometry.
  • Then just rotate the Angle button to rotate your video at your desired angle.

Check the image below for reference.

    1. Hello Jo, Thanks for the comment. I appreciate it.
      And about saving the video after rotation – I don’t know if its possible in VLC. I guess its just for playback purpose. If we have to rotate and save, i guess we would need to do that in a Video Editor like Adobe After Effects or Sony Vegas Pro.
