How to Add an Audio Track to Your Video

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 follow the installation instructions.

Step 2: Add Media Files to the Program

Add file

Click Add Media Files on the main panel and upload the video and audio files you want to merge. All the files will be added on the Timeline board below. The video files will be placed on the video track and the audio files 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 Scissors 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

Click Export and choose how you would like to save your video from the tabs in the upper part of the pop-up window. Select the desired format or the ready-made preset for your mobile device or prepare your video for uploading to the web. Finally, choose the destination folder in the Save to field and click Start.

As you can see, adding music to your videos is really easy with Movavi Video Editor.
