How To Get Rid Of Sound On a Video In Windows Movie Maker


You can edit audio from a video clip in Windows Movie Maker. This is a useful, free program from Microsoft for editing digital videos. You can remove the audio from an entire video, modify the volume or remove the audio from a portion of a video. You may want to do this if you want to replace the audio with music or narration. The program makes this easy to do and should not take you more than a few minutes.

  • Click "Start," "All Programs" and "Windows Live Movie Maker" to open the program if it is already installed. Otherwise, download and install the program from the Windows Live Essentials website (see Resources).

  • Click "Add videos and photos." Browse to the location of your video file. Click it and click "Open" at the bottom right of the window.

  • Click "Edit" on the toolbar at the top of the window. Click "Video volume" on the top left. Click and drag the slider all the way to the left to remove the audio from the video. Use a different slider position to simply change the volume instead.

  • Split the video to create a new clip if you want to remove the audio from a portion of the video. Move the playback indicator on the storyboard to the beginning point of where you want to begin removing audio and click "Split." Click the end point for the clip and click "Split." Click the new video clip, click "Video volume" and drag the slider to the left.

  • Click the "Home" tab, click the upper portion of the "Save movie" button. Enter a file name and choose where you want to save the video. Click "Save." Close the program.

Tips & Warnings

  • Click the "Home" tab and "Add music" to add an audio file to your project to replace the audio you removed.
