  • Hi A117,

    As far as I know, this is by design, we can't change it. We can change only our application, which is developed ourselves. We change device orientation use following code:

    Managed code:
    SystemSettings.ScreenOrientation = ScreenOrientation.Angle270

    native code using ChangeDisplaySettingsEx API, see the sample below:

  • this can be achieved by setting registry [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VisualOn\Filters\VideoRender]RotateAngle

    Though this does not affect other applications, it affects media player.

    VisualOn is a 3rd party tool, which provide mobile media player software. If it provide the interface, you can use it.
