I finally got the "calm" part of this video clip turned on it's side so it viewable without getting a crick in your neck! The simple answer was:
On Windows, follow the instructions at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/mediaadvice/0075.mspx#EPD. Then save the file to your computer, using any of the high quality movie presets, and upload this rotated file.
Thank goodness this worked as I usually shy away from seeking help from the Microsoft website...but all the alternatives to getting a video shot in portrait displayed horizontally had me changing the file type first after downloading software I've never heard of (not that I should have) and only then being able to flip it to a non neck-impairing angle.
I can't imagine that I'm one of few people, given the proliferation of point and shoot cameras with a video feature, that has gotten bold enough to film 30 seconds in the non-standard (though very commonly used) photographic format.
The thing I keep reminding myself is that this is videography, however primitive my equipment, not photography which is where I plan to stay in the future, in deference to my own sanity. :)
