By Carrie Murray, Tuesday, April 16, 2019

If you shot a video with noisy sound, you may want to remove audio from the video and add background music that is actually suitable for the video.

In this post, two audio removers will be introduced - the first one is recommended to take sound out of the video for Windows 10/8/7 and Android; the second one can mute video on iPhone and Mac.

And if you want to remove the sound from videos on YouTube, you can use YouTube video editor.

The audio remover you need to mute videos on Windows is PawEditor. It can remove audio from MP4, MKV, WebM, MOV, FLV, etc. and mute the video. More than that, after taking the sound out of a video, it can save the sound as a separate audio file or add new background music to the muted video. It is a full-featured video and audio editor.
