Movie upside down??

  bri-an 13:34 11 Jul 2008

I use Pinnacle Studio to produce movies from home video.
I made an Mpeg of a 'production' and find that if I open it with Windows Media Player the video is displayed upside down!
Opening it with Nero shows it 'normally'.

OK - "Don't open it with WMP, then" (I can hear the shouts now!!) - but I'm interested to know if anyone knows a reason for this inverted behaviour?

Do you realise that people try to do this deliberately and cant!

Did you use any filters or special effects?

No, the whole thing just runs upside down!

The time to worry is when its upside down after burning to dvd

Have you tried rotating the monitor thru 180 degrees?

(...sorry, couldn't help it!)

Fortunately, in my extensive collection, so far, this has never happened. The WMP business doesn't bother me (I just never use it anyway) - was just interested to know if anyone knew why this happened.

I have become somewhat of a master at headstands on my computer chair!! But the blood rushing to my head makes the picture a bit blurred after a few minutes.

It looks as if Mr Gates was not entirely happy either:

If you have any Australian friends or relatives, you may have been thinking of their requirements...

Oddly enough Brian I have had it happen with a load of clips I'd compiled from Utube some were Upside down when converted.Forunately spotted before burning.Methinks perhaps its a codec thing.Or dyslexic software reads Invert for convert

Windows movie maker can rotate your video 90/180/270 no probs

You must have the left handed version of media player. lol
Is it just the stuff you've compiled or is it any thing that you play on wmp?
