An Easy Way to Add External Audio Track to Video on Mac

Olga Weis

We all love movies and wouldn't you agree that the audio track is an essential part of the dramatic effect that video can have on its viewers? Anything can happen and the original footage may be destroyed, crackled or else.

Another reason why the original audio can be of no use is when you want to watch the movie in its original language and it only comes with a translated track. One thing is finding that original soundtrack and the other thing is - how do you apply it to your movie? Well, we can help you add external audio to video on your Mac.

How to add external audio track to video
with Elmedia Player


First of all you'll still need to find that audio file if you don't have it yet. Search it on the web, and hopefully it won't take you long to find the right one. Next is adding the audio to the video. Follow these steps to add external audio track to video on Mac:

  1. Download Elmedia Player and install it on your Mac.
  2. Play the video in the player.
  3. Play the video with Elmedia
  4. Right-click the video image to call the quick access menu.
  5. Right-click the video
  6. Click the "Audio Track" option, then "Use External Audio". Browse to the audio track that you want to add. It can as well be the music file if you wish that one to play with your movie.
  7. Use External Audio

And don't forget to check whether your movie already comes with more than one soundtrack, so you don't have to search the web for an audio with a different language. Just click Audio in the main menu bar and then "Audio Track". You'll see the already available audio tracks that you can use for your movie. Who knows, maybe the one you want to use was already included with the video.
