i need an hint how i am able tro rotate the picture.
Greetings an verry big thx for the help
i have 8 diffent videos... as an mp4 file feg... the could be on an local storige or on the chromecast itself.
I like to have 8 screens with chormecast which play the video in a loop.
The problem: I like to mount the screen in portrait mode ( rotated 90 degrees).
But on the chromecast there ist no possibility to do this, in the options menu.
First thing first.
If your videos were recorded in 9:16 instead of 16:9, you can't change the aspect ratio of the recorded material, unless you put them in a video editor that can change the aspect ratio stream flags.
To cast to eight screens simultaneously, I already told you, you can use a HDMI splitter 1 to 8.
SORRY but i think i am not able to explain the problem correctly.
The screens has to be mounted in portrait mode! Ohterwise they will not fit on the presenationbords.
So I have to show the videos in 9:16, therfore the videos were made in 9:16.
so The question is, as mentioned obove, how to rotate the screen in the software ob chromecast 90 degrees.... There has to be an solution, every phone, tablet or pc is able to do that... that could be not rocket sience...
Try to use VLC player.
By default, the player will follow the phone’s configuration for video orientation. If your phone is set to just portrait mode then VLC for Android will also play video in portrait mode. If it is set to auto rotate, then the app will also auto rotate the video according to your phone’s orientation. You can obviously set VLC independent of your phone’s position.
To set VLC’s default video orientation, follow these steps:
Go to ☰ Menu
Tap on Settings
Tap on Video screen orientation
Choose your desired option:
What is your prentstion board: a TV screen or a projector screen?
If your video aspect ratio is 9:16 it will be displayed in 9:16 on a horizontal display, but with black bars on the sides.
If your store the files locally on the Chromecast internal storage or on a server, you will not be able to use Chromecast applications to manipulate the orientation.
If the files are stored on a computer, you can use VLC player on the computer to play them and to manipulate the orientation.
In the screenshot you posted above the display ratio looks correct, as it should be, and they will be casted the same.
So we close the coversation with you, you ignore my problem! i makes no sense to talk further more.
I thank you for your help, but this is not expedient.
Situation is easy and clear...
I have an 9:16 video which i like to show on an monitor which is in portrait mode (rotated 90 degrees).
Possibel nor not?
That an standart video is in 16:9 is completly clear for me, but this is NOT standart.
If there is any other user which has an hint for me, it would be great...!
I already told you how you can resolve the problem.
You need to put your videos into a video editor that can modify the video stream aspect ratio flags.
After this, your videos will be displayed as desired.
@k-i-l i have the same question but for static images. Others have rotated images 90deg so the display is "the wrong way" but the images are corrected.
I want to just point to a photos folder so i don't want to have to manually process the images.
Being able to set "portrait" mode would be very beneficial.
It could be a hardware limitation with the video processor in the devices.
I would too be interested to see if Chromecast can be set to portrait mode.
