How to Add Music to a Video Online

Start by clicking the Get Started button and upload either your audio or your video by clicking Upload, pasting a link to content on the web, or just dragging a file straight to the Timeline. When your audio and video are in the Timeline, trim them, move them, and right-click on the video to detach and remove its original background audio, if you want.

Using the Studio, you can add as many audio and video layers as you want! You can use sound effects, voiceovers, music layers, TikTok songs, and visual effects like text, subtitles, lyrics, filters, fancam effects, and much more.

Kapwing enables creators to trim their audio (to focus on the chorus or one soundbite, for example) and specify when in a video the music should start playing. You can import directly from YouTube or upload from a computer or phone.

Kapwing is great for various reasons. There's a lot of features for both images and video, all of which are extremely easy to use. I also like that the Kapwing staff responds quickly to user feedback and input. If you create content, even using high end software, there's likely a reason for you to still use Kapwing for something.
