Roku Streaming Stick plays videos from my smart phone in orentation...

I purchased a Roku Streaming Stick in order to play videos I made with my Galaxy S10 Smart phone on my TV.  The stick allows me to connect my S10 and play my photos on my TV with no issues.  However, when I attempt to play my videos,  they will play but in the wrong orientation and the video image appears compressed.  When I spoke to customer support at Roku, I was advised to do a search on the net to find a solution for my issue.  Any suggestions?

Well, having done a search here, I found just this:

Probably not the result you hoped to hear, but my suggestion would be to find an app for your phone that switches video orientation, as the solution isn't going to be on the Roku end. Look in the Google Play store and find out if there's a video player that will temporarily flip the content the way you want it.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.
