I took a quick look at transcode since I already had it installed, but I
couldn't find an option to reverse the video.

So I installed avidemux, and sure enough the filter was there.  There was
even another filter for rotating video, which I've often wanted in the
past.  Thanks for the tip!  This worked beautifully.
