Calling the SetRotationL() method of the CVideoPlayerUtility class may have incorrect result or cause the device to reboot.


Using the CVideoPlayerUtility::SetRotationL(TVideoRotation aRotation) method with the aRotation parameter set to either EVideoRotationClockwise180 or EVideoRotationClockwise270 may cause the device to reboot or make the rotated video look horribly scrambled.
Setting the rotation to EVideoRotationClockwise90 works without problems on all software builds.

How to reproduce

(See detailed description).


Use only 90 degree clockwise rotation with CVideoPlayerUtility.
The problem has been fixed in the latest software releases, dated 7-11-2005 or later.
