Audacity to CleanUp MP4 Video?

Permanent link to this post Posted by KenO » Tue Mar 15, 2011 2:16 pm

Is it possible to use Audacity to alter (re equalize, noise removal...) the Video MP4 audio that was created from an analogue Video?

If yes would be interested in any suggestions.

Thanks

Yes it is, but you also need appropriate software to extract the audio from the video and put it back again. Audacity can deal with the audio part, but not the video. Do you have suitable video software?

Hi Steve,

"Yes it is, but you also need appropriate software to extract the audio from the video and put it back again. Audacity can deal with the audio part, but not the video. Do you have suitable video software?" No

Is there any Freeware that does it? Am willing to test any Alpha or Beta App.

Thanks

Steve,

Thanks for the link.

Checked the Top 5 Free Video Editing Software Programs http://www.desktop-video-guide.com/top- ... eview.html

As a beginner am at a loss which of the 4 Windows apps to try.

Maybe should rephrase my question: What Video Editing Software(either Free or Paid) would you use with Audacity to alter the Video MP4 audio that was created from an analogue Video?

Thanks again for your help!

Steve,

I originally missed your Re: What Video Editing/Authoring Freeware? post viewtopic.php?p=82436#p82436
"There's quite a few free and open source video eding applications to choose from on Linux. Here's some other popular ones:
http://www.openshotvideo.com/
http://www.pitivi.org/
http://www.kdenlive.org/ "

Have wanted to move to Linux and this gives me a "Good Reason"

Of these 3 is there one that works better with Audacity 1.3.13 Alpha?

Thanks

Ken

Which video editor to use is a separate issue from the Audacity version. Audacity will just be used to edit/process a WAV file, the video program is required to recombine the new (processed) audio with the original video image.

To extract the audio from an MP4 video file you can use "WinFF".
To recombine the processed audio with the video you could use "Avidemux GTK".

Both of these programs are available for Ubuntu through "Applications menu > Ubuntu Software Centre"

Thanks for the suggestions!

Nice that both are platform independent!

Was able to find a Wiki for "Avidemux GTK" with info for both input and output formats.

http://www.avidemux.org/admWiki/doku.ph ... ut_formats

To date have searched to forum for tips, tutorials, or docs on using Audacity to CleanUp any type of Video but only thing I have found is this posting.

Either I am doing something wrong or there is no interested in using Audacity to CleanUp Videos?

Thanks again for your help!

Editing and cleaning the sound track from a video is pretty much the same as working on a recording from a cassette tape.
