YouTube's video editing has changed from how it was back in 2011 when this answer was first posted. You can now rotate your videos by going to the Video Manager page and choosing the Enhancements option from the Edit menu next to your uploaded video. You can also get there by clicking the Enhancements option below the player when viewing your video:

Edit Menu Enhancements option

On the enhancements page, the rotate options are on the bottom, next to the Trim button:

Can you save changes back to the original video? or do you have to save the rotated video as a new video? – Trevor Boyd Smith Feb 6 '13 at 0:18
Unfortunately I can't find this functionality in the video editor any more. Please post more detailed instructions on how to access it. – thSoft Mar 13 '14 at 14:17
It looks like the ability to rotate was removed from the editor, so this answer may not be valid any more. – Herohtar Mar 21 '14 at 20:24
I've updated my answer to be correct for the current iteration of YouTube. – Herohtar Mar 21 '14 at 20:53

Now you can rotate your video using the video enhancer: in My videos, select Enhancements from the menu below your video, then use the rotation icons.
