Best Free Software To Add Audio To Video for Windows

Some people wonder why to add audio to a video file while it already has audio. The answer to this question is that video is never meant to hold the audio, it was made to show everything graphically. If we go back a little in time, there were always black and white pictured videos with no sound at all, for example, Charlie Chaplin show was a mute show with only expressions to describe everything. So, clearing all that, we come back to the feature and think why we add the audio to a video file in the present while all the videos nowadays have audio. The answer is that we sometimes create videos with photos alone like slideshows, or sometimes the microphone doesn’t respond when we were capturing the video, and it loses sound. In this type of cases we have to add audio to a video file because, without sound, a video is not a video nowadays and will be considered as a comic.
