Tutorial Video: How to Add Music to Microsoft Windows Movie Maker Using MP3 Audio Files

I found a very well done, simple tutorial video that shows how to add music to your video for YouTube using Microsoft Windows Movie Maker and MP3 audio files.

You can try this out by downloading one of my free songs if you want. Feel free to edit the MP3 files in order to create clips with a sound that fits in your movies – just like the tutorial shows.

If you are totally new to using the program, here is an article about locating, downloading, installing and “How to Use MovieMaker on Windows 7“. Also, if you are not on Windows you can read about “Online Video Editing Alternatives” as well.

My Tip: Instead of inserting such a long track into moviemaker (as shown in the video) and then having to shorten it, try using the free software called Audacity to edit the clip first.
