It just
affects those from my phone. And they haven't been affected some weeks
ago. I can still play them in a browser or using QTAV, but not vlc or

Meanwhile I found out that it seems that only videos taken before June
12th 2017 are affected. Newer ones play...

I uploaded two sample videos taken with the same phone


does /NOT/ work in VLC: (14.3MB)

plays normal: (29.8MB)

I'm on TW and use mplayer (1.2.r37916-6.9) from packman.

I can play both although the first is 90 degres to the left (standing).


Yes, the error occurs only with vlc and kaffeine. And - besides of browsers - vlc is the only one that automatically corrects the position of the phone and turns them accordingly, which is very useful.
