Here is how to add music to video for free:


Install free Freemake Music Adder

When you need to add music to video, the free Freemake music adding software is a real must-have. It will help you add music to Instagram video, Snapchat video, GoPro video or any other movie or clip.

Download the free tool and install in on your computer. Please note that you need to be connected to the Net to install the program correctly. If your connection is slow or not stable, you can download a full installation file and install Freemake Converter without the Internet.

Add video you want to add music to

Freemake freeware will start automatically when the installation process finishes. Click the "+Video" button to add videos to the tool. You can add music to MP4 videos, AVI, MKV, WMV, HD clips, and so on.

Please note that all the files that you add should not be protected.

Select music background

Prepare a music file you want to add to the video. In case it is in some rare format, you'd better convert to MP3 with our audio converter. If you have added several videos, you will need to add a music file to each of them. Pay attention to the signs to the right of the video. If your video is mute, you will see "No audio" title. If your video comes with background music line that you want to change, you will see the audio format and bitrate.

Click on these settings and in the drop-down menu, select the "Add audio" option. Then select an audio track from your PC.

Please keep in mind that if your audio is longer than video, it will be cut to match the video line. In case your video is longer than the audio, the end of the video will be mute. To avoid this, open the built-in Freemake editor and cut the unnecessary part of the video.

Set final video parameters

To add music to a video, you need to convert the file to one of the video formats. Choose the desired one on the formats bar. The choice depends on your goal. We recommend MP4 for portable devices and websites, AVI for TV sets, MKV for streaming. You can also save videos to DVD or Blu-ray using our free DVD burner.

Click the format button to open the window with the settings. Select a video quality from a drop-down menu. Then select a folder for your new files.

Add your own music to video

Finally, click the "Convert" button to add your music to video.

When the conversion process finishes, go to the pre-selected folder and play your videos with music to check if everything is OK.
