Rotating a QuickTime movie

I was handed a QuickTime movie that was recorded with an iPad that was held upside down.  Luckily ffmpeg makes this easy.

ffmpeg -i <input_file> -strict -2 \
-vf "transpose=1, transpose=1" <output_file>

The -strict -2 allows ffmpeg to use the experimental aac codec, and -vf “transpose=1, transpose=1” rotates the video by 90 degrees twice.
