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 the 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.

# Remove Audio from Video(Windows, Android)

The audio remover you need to mute videos on Windows is Icecream Video Editor (opens new window). 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.

Here list of the steps to remove sound from the video with Icecream Video Editor.

1. Download the audio remover

Click the Download button to get the audio removal tool for your Windows 10, 8, 7 PC.

2. Import a video

In a new project on Icecream Video Editor, double click the empty media library to add a video that you want to take sound off.

4. Remove audio from video

If you would like to remove audio from the video to edit the audio separately or add new music to the video, download FonePaw Video Converter Ultimate (opens new window) first.
