Hero black 8 recorded upside down. How to correct?

Even though my Gopro 8 was right side up, it recorded upside down. How do I prevent upside down recording?

Open the GoPro preferences tab and make sure the orientation is set to "landscape".

 

Also don't use the quick capture settings.  Your GoPro may start recording before it realized the orientation of the camera.  Instead power on your camera and then start recording.

follow what was said and get a better editor that allows rotation of video. if you're not wanting  to purchase find an app that rotates it.
