Is your MPC-HC playing anything upright?
I do sometimes use ALT-Numpad-3 and ALT-Numpad-2 to mirror and flip the video when it comes out of a camera upside down. I know that setting sticks between playbacks of different videos in the same player, but as far as I know it resets to default if I totally quit HPC-HC and start a new instance.

@daemn42 My MPC-HC played the hero-6 inverted videos properly so I never thought that that would be the culprit. For now I followed your method and just flip/rotate it and that seems to stick.
As a side note, I think I figured out how GoPro fixed the Quick Capture problem that I reported over a year ago. Quick Capture would not work properly in the inverted setup in the Hero 6 with auto rotate. My guess is most likely, the camera are not given time to orient itself before it starts recording and once it starts recording, it locks in the up position. So videos would come out inverted in that setup.
With the Hero 7, they probably fix that by as you pointed out using meta data in the file. Here are 2 sniplets of the MediaInfo of the Hero 6 and Hero 7 video files. Both are when the camera is recording in the inverted position.
Display aspect ratio : 16:9
Frame rate mode : Constant
Frame rate : 59.940 fps
Display aspect ratio : 4:3
Rotation : 180°
Frame rate mode : Constant
Frame rate : 29.970 fps
Note the extra line of Rotation:180 in the Hero 7. This all matches up how it now depends on the player. If the player is not setup to recognize that, then the file will play inverted.
That would be my guess as to how the 7 and 6 are working differently and why some player will play the 7 videos good and some won't.
Anyway, I think I will let it rest for now. Thank you so much for your help!

@daemn42 I should also add that using your method, if I use the same player to play the other videos, they will be upside down though. And each time I open it up, i have to manually rotate it 180 degree. I need to figure out how to set MPC-HC to recognize that 180 rotation tag.
Here are the info I found online that seems to validate what's going on:
May I ask which version of MPC-HC are you using?

Hi All, others might not have my problem. But I figured it out now. I have a new laptop but I am using an old MPC-HC version with a renderer that doesn't support rotation. Apparently this issue was already addressed a few years back:
So bascially I have to install MadVR and use it as the renderer and the videos are all good now. Just thought I will post this here incase other just happens to run into it.

I have same problem with GoPro Hero 7 Black as was described. When I filming upside down, video in my computer is rotated for 180 degrees. I tried lanscape settings "up", "down" but video is still rotated in computer. In camera or in GoPro app is everything fine.
I tried to use some other media players - Windows Media Player is bad, also MPC-HC...But I found an interesting thing. When I use Power DVD or VLC media player, video is automatically rotated to correct position after 1-2 sec, but miniatures are still bad rotated! So computer still registers these videos as bad rotated. I'm pretty sick from that. I don't know if I doing something wrong or my camera is bad.
Someone any solutions?
Thanks a lot!
