I did this on my banana pi pro with Bananian Linux with LXDE desktop. I can rotate the screen. However the video is not rotated. Just wonder if you can rotate your video when the screen is rotated.

What about android ?

You mean Android 5.1 as below can rotate screen with hardware acceleration for video playback?

If so, any video playback software supports Android can have hardware acceleration and screen rotation?

I meant manual rotate the screen output by 90 or 180

Good Morning.

I have a Dell S2240T touchscreen, and I installed Android, but I can not turn the screen. I would like to know how to solve this. And also the keyboard does not appear.

I tried the following method on M2-Zero with ubuntu mate 16.04 but I didn’t observe any change in the display. What else I need to change with respect to M2-Zero ?
