Whenever I try to export a video in .avi format I am always getting a video upside down. Does anybody else get the same thing? I am running Mathematica 10.3.1 on an Ubuntu 12.04.5 machine. To check this behaviour simply go to wolfram documentation type ref/format/AVI and try to export the first example "traffic.avi".

    $\begingroup$ I cannot reproduce this. I'm using version 10.3.1 on Linux, and when I do that example (which can be evaluated via Get["http://pastebin.com/raw/ELc5K6y4"] ), I get this as the result $\endgroup$ – Jason B. Feb 17 '16 at 16:10
  • $\begingroup$ @Jason B. Since the link that you sent me is also playing upside down I found out that the default player Totem Movie Player 3.0.1, as well as Dragon Player and SMPlayer, turn the picture upside down. On the contrary, in VLC media player and Kaffeine the video plays with the correct orientation. $\endgroup$ – demm Feb 17 '16 at 17:42
  • $\begingroup$ do you get the same problem is you do something like Export["test.avi", Table[Plot[ a x, ,{x,-2, 2}], {a, 1,20}]? Also, I don't get an upside down video from the default video player, which I think is Totem but is just called Videos. $\endgroup$ – Jason B. Feb 17 '16 at 20:56

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the problem is OS/system-related and not pertaining to Mathematica. $\endgroup$ – Yves Klett Feb 17 '16 at 21:52
