Hi,

I used to use a player which allowed the users to lock the orientation in either portrait or landscape and this especially helps when you're watching it on an angle.

While I'm also waiting for this feature, there is a workaround. Here's how you do it:

 

1) Go into the settings app and navigate to General -> Accessibility and scroll all the way down to the end where you'll see Accessibility Shortcut. Select it

 

2) Change the setting for triple clicking the home button to "AssistiveTouch"

 

3) Launch Infuse

 

4) Enable rotation lock (swipe up from the bottom of the the screen and tap the rotation lock icon)

 

5) Triple click the home button to make the AssistiveTouch widget appear. Tap it, which brings up the AssistiveTouch menu, tap "Device", then "Rotate Screen"

 

6) Select the rotation you want for the phone

 

7) Close the menu by tapping outside the menu (this is important, if you skip this step certain OS gestures won't work until you turn on/off assistive touch again)

 

Cool Triple click the home button to hide the AssistiveTouch menu and widget

 

Your device will now be rotation locked in landscape mode. The rotation will be reset if you switch away from the current app, though.

 

It's not an ideal situation, but it does work.
