Help Playing portrait videos in portrait orientation

When I try to play portrait orientated videos (I know, I should stop recording in portrait) they play back in landscape orientation so they are ludicrously small.

I have tried to lock the orientation but it doesn't work. When the video is previewed in Gallery it's the correct way round but as soon as I tap the play button the screen reorientates.

How do I stop it doing this?
