We have all known situations when you record a beautiful and picturesque scene and suddenly there's a random noise or comment in the video that ruins it all. Remove audio from video and then add new music or other suitable sound to the background. Use a fast and reliable video editor, like Icecream Video Editor, to cope with the task in no time. Find the step-by-step guide on how to remove audio from MP4 video or other supported video formats below.


Download the video editor / audio remover

Download Icecream Video Editor from our website. Follow the standard installation procedure and open the program to proceed to remove sound from your video.


Add the video you need to remove sound from to the timeline

First, the video has to be added to the Media Library. The best way to do this is to drag and drop the video right into the window of the Icecream Video Editor. Note that bulk addition of the files is supported. Another way is to click the "+Add files" button to open the file browser to find a file.
