No matter if it’s a music video, TV show, or concert video, you can make your own MP3 file of the fantastic piece of music for enjoyment on the go. Check the step-by-step guide below to separate your audio from video.

Part 1: How to separate audio from video with Filmora

1. Load your media files

Run this audio separator, choose 16:9 or 4:3 ratio as per your needs to enter into the editing mode. Then click Import to add videos, audio, and photos from your file folder on the computer. Note that this program is highly compatible with various formats, so you can maintain the original quality when editing them frame by frame.

After you import videos, drag and drop them to the Timeline. By default, all files in Video Timeline will be merged together without any gap.


2. Separate audio from video in a click

Now right-click the video file you want to extract the audio track, and select "Detach Audio". Immediately, you'll notice an audio file appears on the audio track. Yes, this is the original audio file from the source video. 


Now you’ve separated the audio track from the video file successfully. Want to add another audio file to it? Yes, it’s very common to add some instructions or narration to your recorded video to make yourself more clear or create some fun things to share with family or friends. To do this, you can refer to more details from this tutorial: How to add music/background music to a video

3. Save the separated video or audio

Since the audio was separated from the video track, you can simply delete the audio or video track you don't need and add the new audio you want. Then hit "Export" to save the audio track to a new MP3 file, or directly select "iPod" preset to play on the go.

Tips: If you want to keep the split video frame or audio track separately in a new file, you'll need to save it to a project file on your hard drive first. When you complete the audio track export, reload the project file that contains the video frame, then export it to a new video file.


Bonus tips:
Wondershare Filmora (originally Wondershare Video Editor), in its latest upgrade, adds a set of special and funny editing features that even the most expensive editing programs don't support. Examples include making Jump Cut at scene changes, creating a frozen frame to highlight the most exciting moment of the story, applying Tilt-shift to make a miniature & create your own little video world!
