How to Add Audio to Video or Replace Audio in a Video File
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 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 orignal audio track.

After that, delete the audio file from the track. As described above, you can then drag and drop a new audio file from User's Album to Audio track.

A variety of audio editing tools are available: set volume, speed up, slow down, change pitch and add fade in/out effect. To change the settings, just double click the audio file on the timeline and drag the slide bar. Hit "Return" to confirm the settings and go back to the main interface.
