This is part 2 of how to use windows movie maker. To read part 1, click here.

In part 1 I spoke about:

a: How to open movie maker.

b: How to upload videos in to it.

c: How to put pictures.

If you have no idea how to use movie maker you should really read part 1 before you read this. Anyway here I will tell you how to add music to your video.

In most windows computers there should be a sample video pre-installed. Go to the folder which says “Sample videos”

Click on this folder.

My sample video is a wildlife video, yours might be the same or might not but double click on it regardless and it will go on to your video.

Double click on the video with a left click.

If you like the music in this video, fine. However if you want to change it, first you can silence the existing music by going to the edit button and turning the sound off as shown in the picture below.

The orange arrow shows the "Edit Tab" which you click on first, and the blue arrow shows the sound control which you reduce to 0.

Now that there is no sounds on the video, to add music you click on the “Add Music” icon as shown below.

Once you do that you will get a menu with a range of options including chosing a music file from “AudoMicro”, “Free Music Archive” and also “Vimeo”, you can click on any of these and then look for a file which has the sound or music that you want. Or you can go and chose a music file already on your PC. Once you do that you have the video clip and music for your new video and hey presto, you have your video!

A pop up menu appears with different choices.

As Hollywood would say “THE END”.

Looking for audio files/music to put in to your videos.

However what if you cannot find the music file you are looking for?

Well there are different ways you can find them and download them on to your computer.

One of the easiest is this way is to go to Youtube and look for a file that you like.

For example you can type the words “Relaxing music”.

Type in the name of the song or type of music/sound you are looking for.

When you have chosen the video you like, copy and paste the URL i.e. the webpage addresss which would look like this for instance:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvsW-BmFAE8

Then go to http://www.youtube-mp3.org/

Type in the URL (address of the webpage i.e. youtube video) you like anad click on “Convert Video” and then after a short time you will have a new audio file (sound only, no pictures) of that youtube on your computer which you can then put in to your videos.

After pasting the URL, click on "Convert Video".

After pasting the URL, click on “Convert Video”.

I hope you have found this useful and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Have a great day!
