How to Flip an Image in VLC


VLC is a free, open source multimedia player that is capable of playing a variety of media formats, including discs, devices and most multimedia file types. VLC media player combines a simple user interface with a powerful set of tools and effects to enhance or alter media playback. While most media players cannot flip an image without manually re-encoding the video file prior to playback, VLC allows you to instantly flip or rotate an image at any time.

  • Download the VLC installation file (see Resources), and follow the on-screen instructions to install.

  • Click the "Start" button in the Windows taskbar and double-click on "VLC Media Player" to open.

  • Press the "Media" button in the toolbar, and select "Open File..." from the drop-down menu. Locate your chosen video file in the dialog box and press "Open."

  • Click the "Tools" button in the toolbar, and select "Effects and Filters" from the drop-down menu.

  • Click the "Video Effects" tab in the "Effects and Filters" window. Check the box next to "Transform" in the "Basic" tab, and select either "Flip Horizontally" or "Flip Vertically" from the list of options. The video will instantly be transformed.

  • Press the "Close" button and click the "Play" icon in VLC media player to begin watching the flipped video file.
