0.98.4: Videos appear upside down

Post by alexo »

XnView MP Windows
Version 0.98.4 64bits (May 28 2021)
Libformat version 7.81

MP4 videos copied from my camera play upside-down in Xnview MP.
They play the right side up n every other player I tried.

Example clip of my water bottle:

known issue, you can try to change in xnview.ini

Code: Select all

useInternalVideoPlayer=false

When I tried it, videos stopped displaying at all. I got the controls but the video display area was blank.

Same here. I have no interest in installing a codec pack which makes a mess of my system writing over everything else.

I just discovered this bug on my install. Same versions as yours alexo.
I haven't tried the workaround.

The EXIF is not at fault since every other player displays the videos with the correct orientation.
This is an XnView bug.
