1. Go to 'Tools' > 'Effects and Filters'.


2. on the 'Adjustments and Effects' dialog box, select the 'Video Effects' tab.



3. Then select the 'Geometry' tab.


4.  Check 'Transform' here.



5.  The drop down menu below 'Transform' can now be set to the orientation you wish the video to be displayed in VLC.
