I am from the team that develops BuddyPress Media. Like @shanebp says, the rotation data is stored in the exif data. Generally, most devices that can detect their orientation correctly assign the data. So, when storing or uploading, things remain normal. However, older devices and iOS don’t do this and images and videos are displayed with awkward rotations.
Ideally, a browser should be able to detect this and automatically correct the rotation. However, (surprise, surprise) only Internet Explorer 10 does this.
We are working on this and there is an open issue here: https://github.com/rtCamp/buddypress-media/issues/118
We plan to fix this at least with BuddyPress Media, soon!
Seems like you gave up on BuddyPress. Apologies, if we had a hand in it.
Sorry! Never received this reply in my mailbox and because we’ve been terribly busy over the holidays, didn’t return to this forum.
I’ll check things today and revert, asap.

I guess, I don’t have the permission to upload images. Could you check my permissions?
Yes, I logged in via facebook. The other way is too cumbersome, in comparison.
Nevertheless, just try how it goes with the default buddypress theme, once. It is way beyond our business hours (about 10 pm), so I’d only be able to check it in the morning, tomorrow, along with the team. We’ll register via the standard form, then.
We haven’t experienced this before. I tried registering on your site, but it asks for an activation to acess buddypress.
What happens if you switch to the default theme? At times, themes using non standard ways of using js are known to interfere with our functionality.
The group media functionality is very new and introduced in just 2.3. Hence, there is just the bare minimum functionality. Could you add this as a feature request on our github repo here: https://github.com/rtCamp/buddypress-media/issues.
As of now, they would just have to copy paste the url, which sucks frankly. We are not sure how to link the users’ uploads in a group to their profiles or activities. We have multiple ideas but can’t zero in on ‘the’ one.
Any ideas you’d have are most welcome.
