Default Problems when recording/watching video in landscape mode

Sometimes when I record a video with my HTC EVO 4G LTE in landscape mode, the playback doesn't always play in landscape. I made a short video to better illustrate it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hmmm, that is a bit strange.
If you have not already, the first thing I would try is to calibrate the G-Sensor. It looks like it could be a bit off? It could also be a number of other things though.

Try going to: Settings -> Display & gestures -> G-Sensor calibration
Place the phone on the flattest surface you can find to get the bubbles in the middle of the levels and then hit Calibrate.

Hopefully that will dial it in and clear things up?

If your end game is to upload to youtube, you can rotate it using the YouTube editor. Won't help if you're watching on your phone, but its something.

I've occasionally had this problem too. I'm not sure what it is, but it may be that the sensor is not picking up the horizontal orientation fast enough, or maybe the video is starting in vertical mode when started.

Ok...cool, I wasn't aware that you could do that on youtube. Thanks...

I tried re-calibrating the G sensor. I made a few vids this weekend and two of them came out jacked up. At least I know that I can rotate it when I upload it to youtube.

Nuts. I was hoping the G-Sensor cal would fix it up.

Between this and your internet browser problem, I have to wonder if you by any chance took the recent update? Could something have gotten gummed up during your update (a fairly common occurrence)? Maybe a Factory reset would be in order?

I'm still pre-update, and I get this problem every now and then.

I'm not thinking that there is a problem with the update. Or some all encompassing reason. I'm speculating maybe an update issue for this specific case since he has other unexplainable internet bugs as mentioned in a different thread. So possibly a problem in the OP's case with the process of updating (if he updated).
You've been around a bit, so you know how after updates there are always a small number of users that end up with strange unexplainable bugs. All kinds of strange things can result during the carry over process from the old software and caches to the new.

I feel ya though, you've kind of had some sort of strangeness since the beginning. You had landscape homescreens for that little bit out of the gate, and intermittently it has not always been very responsive to orientation changes. Too hard to pin down though. If you click the show button in my post above, I've always wondered if your case possibly might fall more into this category?

Default How can I keep the phone from realigning the image or video Re. horizintal/vertical axis?

How can I keep the phone from realigning the image or video, Re. horizontal/vertical axis?

For instance, viewing a phone camera video with the phone is in the typical vertical position,
but the phone is showing the video sideways such that the horizon in the image is aligned vertically with the phone.
The image is filling the vertical screen, except that the image is sideways.

In such a case, I would like to turn the phone horizontal so that I can see the full screen image in the proper alignment.

The problem is that when I rotate the phone to the horizontal, the image is realigned,
such that it has a huge black border on the left and right
and the actual image is this puny little think in the middle of the horizontal screen.

Is there any remedy for this--some way to keep the phone from realigning the image?

A friend with an iphone told me he can lock his image or video into a position to remedy this problem. Does the HTC EVO LTE have this remedy.

Thanks
PS. I hope that I have described this issue adequately. It's difficult to describe.

The solution is to make sure you're recording in the right way. When you start the video the orientation sensor figures out if you're vertical or horizontal. If you start one way and then switch, that causes problems.

Or, playback your images/video in a different app that permits orientation changes like Quickpic.

Or, go to settings and enable/disable auto-rotate, or you can download an app/widget for it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=kennethcheng.com.autorotate

Default LteEvo video question

I just got my phone and I'm still getting used to it. I shot a video and it's sideways. I don't see the option to rotate it. Is there a trick to rotating it? For example I shot the video with my phone side ways so when I try to watch the video with the phone up straight the video plays side ways and if I rotate the phone the video flips upside down.

Upload your video to youtube and then you can rotate it to whatever you want with the youtube editor.
