How to Add Audio to Video or Replace Audio in a Video File

By Jul 04,2017 14:48 pm

The audio or music of video can have a dramatic effect on our perception of a video – no matter whether it’s a home movie, a commercial, or a video presentation. But what if all you have is silent footage or with just crackled and distorted audio file that needs to be replaced?

To solve this problem, I humbly recommend Wondershare Filmora (originally Wondershare Video Editor). With it, you can easily add audio to video, or replace the original audio track (stream) with a new audio file or voiceover. Now see the easy steps to add audio to video files or replace the original audio track.

The voiceover will be added to User's Album as well as Timeline when completed.

Is it possible for me to uninstall/remove some effects (summer, valentine, etc) from my program? For some reason, ever since I downloaded and installed the Summer effects pack, my video and audio do not sync. My music track is longer (4:00) when played on top of video clips in Filmora. But it is 3:56 only when played with VLC, Windows Media Player, my mobile phone, and Filmora without video clips.
