Sometimes we need to delete audio from video completely instead of mute the audio of source video; sometimes our movies comes with 2 audio tracks or multiple audio track and we only want one in the video files. The following article will introduces a simple way in removing audio from video in whatever situation:

  • Situation 1: This method suits the video you want to compress is in MKV, MPEG, WMV, VOB, MOV, DV, HDV, AVCHD, MXF, MVI, FLV and more video format, and your media player, portable digital device, or video editing software supports to play or edit H.264 MP4.
  • Situation 2: So i am trying to watch a movie in my TV, the thing is that i downloaded a movie via torrent and the movie comes with 2 audio tracks, the one is english the other one is english + the director comments through all the movie, now i copied the movie to an USB flash device, because my TV has USB reader, the movie plays and it is all ok, but the thing is by default it has chosen the audio with the director commentating, knowing that there is no way that the TV gives you an option to change tha audio my question is: How can i remove the audio with the commentating and leave it only with the original english? Is there a way to copy the movie but only with the 1 (selected) audio?
  • Situation 3: I downloaded some interesting videos, and want to redub in them using video edit software and send them to my friends. I tried Windows Movie Maker; it can mute the audio of source video, and add new audio. But I really want to remove the audio from source video completely, rather than mute.
  • Situation 4: I have several AVI files that have dual audio in Russian/English. The default audio is Russian, and I want to change the default language or remove the Russian language from these AVI files. How could I achieve this? I don't want to change the audio stream every time I play the movie.
  • Situation 5: I have an mp4 video file with multiple audio tracks. I would like to strip away the rest of the tracks and keep just one. How do I do this?
  • Situation 6: I would like to remove the audio tracks from various video clips (.avi, .mpg. .wmv, .flv, etc.). I Googled and found lots of ways to strip off the audio and save that sound as an mp3 file, but I have found nothing that would allow me to remove the audio and save my video clip (silently).
