How to Unmirror Playing Videos on Android

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

  1. Install GOM Player from Google Playstore.
  2. Launch the player and navigate to the folder containing the mirrored video.
  3. Tap on the video to start playing it.
  4. Tap on the three dots on the top right of the screen to reveal the menu.
  5. 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.
