Browse and Add Audio to Youtube Videos [Youtube Tip]

By Sidharth | Ideas

youtube_musicLately I’ve been using YouTube to upload videos using video capturing tool such as Snag-it which records the screen action and saves them on the desktop. Although we can add audio to these recorded videos but we have to use a different tool.

Luckily, Youtube comes to the rescue as it allows you to browse, add audio to no-sound videos without going through the strenuous process.

So, if you have any videos that are already uploaded on Youtube without a sound then use this feature to embed an audio by browsing through Youtube archives. You can also change the existing audio of the video using the Audioswap option.


Login to your Youtube account and go to My videos (assuming that you’ve already uploaded the video). Now select the video whose audio needs to be revamped, click on AudioSwap as shown in the above screenshot.

You will be brought to a page where you can search for an audio song, latest music based on genre, artist and the tracks available. Select the track and preview the video (Yes, the audio is embedded to your video) 😉


Pretty useful feature from Youtube as you can swap the music anytime without uploading the video again and again!
