If you’re an avid video viewer, there’s a good chance that you also enjoy listening to audio content as well. However, if you want to convert your favorite videos into audio files so you can listen to them offline or on the go, there are a few things you’ll need to know.
To convert videos into audio files, you’ll first need to find the videos you want to convert and download them to your computer.
Introduction: What makes a good audio file?
Audio files can make or break a presentation. They need to be clear, concise, and easy to follow. If the audio is poor, people may not be able to understand what is being said.
Additionally, if the audio is unclear or choppy, it can be very difficult for the audience to follow. There are a few things that make an audio file good: clarity of voice, proper pronunciation, and no background noise.
Choosing a format: MP3, WAV, AAC
Audio files – MP3, WAV, AAC – are all popular formats for music storage and playback. What’s the difference between them? And which is best for you? Here’s a look at the pros and cons of each format, and which might be the best choice for you.
Recording the audio: using software or an audio recorder
Audio recording software or an audio recorder can be used to record audio. The options vary depending on the type of recorder and the operating system.
Audio recording software is available for both Windows and Mac. Audio recorder interfaces are available for both USB and Firewire port types.
Audio recording software is also available on a stand-alone device that can be connected to a computer or other audio source.
Editing and formatting the audio: using software or an audio editor
There are many different ways to edit and format audio using software or an audio editor. You can use software like Adobe Audition to clean up the sound, add effects, and make changes to timing or content. Or you can use an editor like Garage Band or Cubase for a more comprehensive approach that allows for mixing and sequencing.
Whichever route you decide to take, be sure to read the instruction manual thoroughly so that you understand how everything works. And be sure to test your work on a sample track before finalizing it!
Sharing the audio: online or with friends
It’s no secret that sharing music online is a popular pastime. Whether you’re streaming your favorite song on Spotify, Apple Music, or Pandora, or downloading it to your phone and blasting it in the car, there’s a good chance many of your friends have heard it.
But what about sharing audio files with friends who don’t have access to the internet? Via Bluetooth or an external hard drive?
There are plenty of ways to share audio files with friends offline- whether they’re in the same room as you or not- but some methods are more convenient than others.
For example, if you want to share an audio file with someone who doesn’t have Bluetooth enabled in their car, you could transfer the file over USB.
However, this can be time-consuming and interruptive if you’re trying to continue a conversation.
