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.

Before reading al the other replies, did you make sure the necessary packages
are fomr Packman?
