I’ve already covered extensively on how to unflip mirrored videos using PotPlayer, VLC, MPC-HC and GOM Player. All these guides were however geared towards desktop users and more specifically Windows users.
Recently it occurred to me that a lot more people are nowadays watching videos on their smartphones and as such this issue is likely to pop up there as well.
So I went searching for a solution and I was lucky enough to find one in the way of GOM Player for Android. Just like its desktop counterpart, GOM player for Android has a feature that allows you to unmirror videos very easily. Here’s how to go about it.
Unmirror Videos using GOM Player for Android
- Install GOM Player from Google Playstore.
- Launch the player and navigate to the folder containing the mirrored video.
- Tap on the video to start playing it.
- Tap on the three dots on the top right of the screen to reveal the menu.
- Select Screen Settings and toggle the Mirror effect to ON.
And that’s it! To disable the effect just toggle the effect to OFF.
Remember that this is not a permanent solution and you’ll have to apply this effect every time you play a flipped video. To permanently undo the mirror effect you’ll need to edit the video in a suitable video editor or video converter.
