Shotwell can rotate photos. It would be nice if it could rotate videos as well.

gstreamer ships a plugin called videoflip that can rotate videos. If you have gstreamer-tools installed you can test it on the command line and rotate any gstreamer-supported video:
gst-launch filesrc location=video.avi ! decodebin name=decoder decoder. ! queue ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! pulsesink decoder. ! videoflip method=clockwise ! ffmpegcolorspace ! xvimagesink

When recording a video my camera creates .thm files which is basically a jpeg file. These contains an EXIF rotation tag that maybe could be used to rotate the video automagically.

When rotating (which means, in shotwell context, only 90/180/270 rotations), the â€œmimicâ€ (thumb) should be rotated (easy) and video could be played back with some more options (user-set). mplayer can easily rotate videos, and I suppose most video playback softwares can also.
