This is especially for iOS. It records videos in the default orientation and saves how the image/video is rotated in the EXIF data.

Client applications are supposed to display media using this EXIF data. IE does this for videos by default.

We cannot depend on the client for doing this. We need to check uploaded media for such rotation and fix it before saving/creating attachments and meta data.

The rotation of images has been fixed. Videos cannot be fixed in BuddyPress Media. We'll have to add this to FFMPEG converter.
