How to add audio to video

Start a new project in the WeVideo app or online video editor. Or start with a video template instead!

Upload a new audio or video file from your device or choose a song, soundtrack, or sound effect from our stock library. Then drag and drop your clips to the Timeline to get started editing.

Once you've dragged your audio and video down to the Timeline, add music! Click into the Audio submenu to find an audio track for any mood: sad, happy, playful, relaxing...anything. (Audio tracks are categorized by mood to help ya out.) 

If the sound or background music is shorter than your video, auto-loop the audio for an easy end-to-end solution.

After adding music in our app or video editing software, you can continue editing to add transitions, text, annotations, and more. Just drag any feature down to your Timeline.

When you're done, choose your preferred video resolution and export your new video with music. Done!

Frequently asked questions

You're in the right place! There are plenty of online tools and video editing apps out there, but we're partial to WeVideo (naturally). Just upload your video file, add music from your device or our library, and then export your project in your preferred size and resolution. 

WeVideo's free plan gives you access to all our app's key features, including a selection of free sound effects and background music options. To access the full stock library (and to remove the watermark from published videos), upgrade to a paid plan.

Not sure we've got the right music for you? You can give it a try with a free trial to find out.

WeVideo supports the following audio files: AIF, MP3, M4A, OGG, WAV, and WMA.

Our video maker supports the following video files: 3GP, 3GPP, AVI, DIVX, DV, FLV, M4V, MJPEG, MKV, MOD, MOV, MP4, MPEG, MPG, M2TS, MTS, MXF, OGV, WEBM, and WMV. 

When it comes to saving your video, you can export your clip with sound however you want it: MP4, GIF, or even audio-only MP3. Choose the right video resolution, too, so that your file is well-sized to upload anywhere.

With our video editor, yes! Simply upload all your media clips to your video project and then drag them to your Timeline. You can place clips on individual tracks (allowing you to layer them), or you can place them on the same track and then merge them with transitions.

Definitely! However, do be aware of copyright laws in your region. Most social media platforms will remove videos that use copyrighted music without explicit and obvious permission.

The safest way to avoid these issues is to use royalty-free music clips or your own personal audio file — both of which are easy to do in WeVideo.
