AppleScript: rotate mov file in QuickTime Pro

Some kind of life hack: it’s very easy to make mov file with digital camera, rotating it 90 degrees. However, it’s not so easy to convert the result file to the ‘visible’ form.

QuickTime Pro(the native product from Apple) could do this, and I found the AppleScript script, which could make it even more easy.

tell application "QuickTime Player"
set m to (get movie 1)
rotate m by -90
save self contained m in (choose file name with prompt "save self contained movie")
end tell

The script is mentioned here

  1. Though there are many video rotator which can rotate MOV, it change the video quality.

    Luckily, I find iDealshare VideoGo, it can rotate MOV video 90 degrees clockwise, 180 degrees or 270 degrees without changing the video quality.

    It support rotate MOV as well as keep the same video format or convert MOV to other video format.

    Just google Step by Step Guide on How to Rotate MOV withi iDealshare VideoGo, you will find a detailed guide.

    It even can rotate MP4, AVI, MKV, MPG, WMV and etc
