How to Easily Reverse a Video on Desktop and Mobile

Whether you're editing videos on your desktop or smartphone, reversing a video can add a unique touch to your content. In this article, we'll explore simple and quick methods to reverse videos on popular desktop and mobile platforms. Let's dive in!

Reversing a Video on Android and iOS

When it comes to ease and speed, nothing beats the Reverse Movie FX app for Android and iOS. This dedicated app offers a range of video editing features, including special music effects and the ability to output both original and reversed videos.

  1. Download the Reverse Movie FX app from the Play Store for Android or the App Store for iOS.
  2. Open the app and tap on the “Start Reverse” option. Choose to either record a movie or select a video file from your device.
  3. Once you've recorded or selected the video clip, you can use the editor to choose the start and endpoints of the video that you want to reverse. Click on “Start” when you're ready.
  4. In the “Rendering options” menu, you can select the output style, filter, quality, and music to add to your reversed video.
  5. As the music of a reversed video may get distorted, the app provides special music that works well with reversed videos. Alternatively, you can upload your own music from internal or external memory.
  6. Click on “Start reversing” to initiate the reversal process. The app will save the reversed video on your device and give you a preview of the final result.

The Reverse Movie FX app also offers example videos and tricks to add interesting effects to your reversed videos. However, if you're looking for more advanced video editing capabilities, you can explore other powerful apps like Inshot, Kinemaster, Filmora Go, and Power Director.

Reversing a Video on Mac, Linux, Chrome OS, and Windows

For desktop operating systems, there are numerous professional video editing apps available that can also reverse videos. If you're seeking a straightforward solution, the Clideo web app is an excellent choice.

(Note: The free version of Clideo adds a watermark to the video. You can remove it by subscribing to the pro version for $9/month.)

  1. Open Clideo and click on “All tools,” then select “Reverse Video.”
  2. Choose the video file from your computer, Google Drive, or Dropbox by clicking on “Choose file.”
  3. Once the video is selected, it will be uploaded and played in reverse. You can adjust the playback speed and choose the desired file format.
  4. If you wish to mute the video, enable the “Mute video” checkbox. Finally, click on “Export” to save the reversed video.

Clideo offers a range of other video editing tools, including options to add music, resize, merge, compress, adjust speed, rotate, and crop videos for free. Keep in mind that the free version adds a watermark to the video. If you prefer to avoid watermarks or are willing to pay for a subscription, there are alternative options such as the Kapwing web app, Filmora, Premiere Pro, and Final Cut Pro.

Wrapping Up: Reverse Videos on Desktop and Mobile

Whether you choose to use Reverse Movie FX and Clideo apps or opt for other video editing software mentioned above, reversing a video is a creative way to enhance your content. Personally, I recommend Filmora Go for smartphones and Davinci Resolve for desktop editing. Choose the solution that best suits your needs and let your creativity flow!
