I uploaded a video to my laptop from my mobile phone and now I need to flip it and I can't find that option on the computer's media player. what can I do?

To flip your video, you need a third-party video editing program that is equipped with a flipping feature, which can rotate your video in 180 degrees. Here are two video editors that can flip a clip-on Windows or Mac computer.
