    Background music - video editing


    Hi all,

    I expect adding background music to video. On searching I found many suggestion such as;
    Mixing audio tracks in a video file in Linux
    Mixing audio tracks in a video file in Linux - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange

    Could you please share me your experience? How to delete the sound recorded during taking video?

    TIA

    Regards

    The audio/video work I've done has been very simple, basically making video from still frames, combining video clips and audio streams. So I haven't needed (or wanted) a GUI to edit things. So for what I've done, using "ffmpeg" from the command line (I think it's called "avconv" now) was perfect. It's fast and has every option I wanted and then some.

    But it's command line only so that may or may not work for you.

    If you want a GUI, then my suggestion is just to try out the programs listed on the page you linked.

    Hi,

    I prefer running commands to get the job done.

    On that link there are many suggestions I wonder in which way shall I proceed?

    Code:
    $ ffmpeg -i input_video.mp4 -i audio.mp3 -shortest output_video.mp4
    works here but with poor video quality.

    Code:
    $ mencoder output.mp4 -o video_final.mp4 -ovc copy -oac copy -audiofile audio.mp3
    also works here with good video quality.

    I'm now searching around for the solution adding a running banner on the video. Have you ever come across this technique before?

    Thanks

    Regards
