Ross, just to clarify: when you play the video, is the video itself rotated as it is playing? Or is it simply the thumbnail image that is rotated? 

We are aware of an issue where the thumbnail appears rotated when the video is taller than it is wide, and that the video itself will have a rotated image in the background (visible to the left and right of the video). Currently there is no way to fix this, but our developers are looking into this issue.

Is this a separate issue where the video itself is rotated and playing on its side?

I have this issue with a .mov file.  Is there a way to rotate a video in Proclaim?  Thank you and Lord bless!

There is not a way to rotate a video in Proclaim. If you provide the name of the uploaded video that is improperly rotated I can take a look and make sure it's an issue with the video and not Proclaim itself.

In the meantime you should be able to use Quicktime or another video editing program to rotate the video prior to uploading.

Hi all

Until someone else comes up with a better answer people, can I suggest you try the following.

  • I find this works best with an MP4
  • start a new PowerPoint presentation (best in a latest version) in the display format required ie 4:3 or 16:9.
  • import your video and rotate as required, maybe even use a black or colored background and set the video to auto playback
  • In PowerPoint select File Save As and select the MP4 option
  • Import resulting MP4 normally into Proclaim and play as a video AddItem
  • Edit start and end (if you have not already done so, and other options normally.

Yes, I assume you can import the entire PowerPoint and use it to play it, but I like all my eggs in one basket :-)

Hope this helps.

Jim
