    You well be asked if you want to export the video in a mode compatible with all video players or in a mode compatible only with iOS and QuickTime. Personally, I recommend the first option, which takes a little longer to process the video but ensures better results. Hence the option Compatible with all video players and wait patiently for the movie to be saved on your iPhone.

After saving, you well find the movie rotated / flipped in the app Gallery of iOS, just like any other video shot with the iPhone camera (by going to Albums> All Photos, in the display of Moments well not appear).
