Sometimes music can have a dramatic effect on our perception of a video – no matter whether it’s a movie, a commercial, or a video presentation. But what if all you have is silent footage or a video with just a few snippets of voice commentary that really needs some music to make it interesting? With Movavi video and sound editing software, you can easily add an audio track in MP3, WMA, OGG, or FLAC format to your MP4, AVI, or any other format video and save it as a new file. Download Movavi Video Editor and learn how to combine audio and video using the four simple steps below.
Step 1: Install Video Editor
Open the .exe file you’ve downloaded and install it according to the Installation Wizard instructions.
Step 2: Add Media Files to the Program
Click Add Media Files on the main panel and open the video and audio files that you want to merge. Then go to the Media tab and drag the added files the corresponding tracks on the timeline board below. The video file should be placed on the video track and the audio file on the audio track – marked with the musical note icon.
Step 3: Adjust the Audio File
If the video and the sound track lengths do not match, you can edit the audio in your video in numerous ways. For example, if the music file is longer than your video, you can move the red marker to the end of the video, and click the Split clip into two parts button as it shown on the picture. If the video is longer than the music track, you can double the audio and place the copied files side by side on the same track.
Step 4: Save the Result as Video File
After adding the audio and combining it with the video, you can encode it into a new file. Click Save Movie and select Save as Video File. In the pop-up window, select the required format or the ready-made preset for your mobile device.
As you can see, adding music to your videos is really easy with Movavi Video Editor.
