YouTube is the biggest online video streaming platform which is expeditiously getting bigger and bigger every year since it’s launch. It’s available all around the world (except China of course). The reason behind this steep growth is the model of the platform. Anyone with a Google account can upload a video on the platform, build a channel and earn by monetizing the content. Because of that, thousands of videos are being uploaded to YouTube every day. Since anyone can upload, many videos are not so professional looking. You can even find videos which lack the very basics constituents such as orientation. Watching a video in the wrong orientation is annoying. Although you can rotate the entire display using the hotkey, not all people are aware or okay with that.

This article covers 3 free extensions for Google Chrome that let you rotate videos on YouTube. These extensions provide you simple controls to easily change the video orientations of any video on YouTube. Some of these extensions let you rotate the video on some specific angles whereas some provide you a scale from 0 to 360 degrees for custom rotation. Let’s check them out.
