How do you edit the audio of a home video?

I have a home video that has audio on it that is too loud.

The most common (and free!) utility you may use to edit audio of a video you made is Windows Movie Maker. This utility is provided on any Windows XP machine and has been created by Microsoft.

Most modern video editing software has effects that can be added to the audio track of the video to adjust the level to a desired volume .

If you have a audio/video editing application you can fix that in no time. Search and Download ConvertXtoDVD and look for the tutorial.

You should use a video editing software such as Pinnacle Studio, Sony Vegas, Ulead Video Suite or Adobe Premiere, either one will work just as well.

If you have a computer program like Adobe Premiere, it will import the sound and video onto two different layers so you can turn down or mute the audio. The low tech way to handle it is just to control the sound with the TV instead.

using a simple program like windows live movie maker or apple imovie you can simple import the video, adjust the olume, and export (make to export the video, not just save it)


Answer by  Phil28 (379)

If you already have a video editing software you should be able to fix the volume there. The function i would look for is "normalize". That usually prompts you for a maximum audio level and goes over the whole audio track. If your audio is so loud that it is clipping, that is simply not fixable except by the reshoot-filter.
