Re: upside down problem

I went through the same trouble and frustration as you but in the end, it's not a problem with the H7.  If you have certain videos players that can play the videos properly, then it's the problem with the other players not recognizing the ROTATION:180 tag in the video files.  Which version of media player do you have?  You probably have to dl the latest version of the player.  Good luck.

Re: upside down problem

Yes, I thought it was problem of H7.

I read this topic and I was glad that someone has already described this issue.

 

I have Windows Media Player 11 (newest version for Windows 7). Today I installed newest version of PowerDVD 18 and VLC media. And as i wrote, video is manually rotated after 1-2 seconds but miniatures are still bad. Maybe some codecs may need to be installed.

 

I have to figure out how to solve it.

Thanks for cooperation.
