Edit YouTube Video (change Audio)

I want to change the audio on a YouTube Video to some spoken text we will be recording.

See attached. I think I am logged onto the right place on youtube, but I have no clue how to remove the current song & replace with recorded text (audio file).

Is this the right place?

How do I have the text recorded? As mp3 or ??

Is there some place this is documented?

Thanks,

rkorts

You will need to download the video and use a video editor to remove the old audio track and insert the new one, then you can upload the video again.

That will remove the song. Im sure that was created  for copyright infringement cases allowing a user to remove the song in question.

I found Movie Maker, sounds like that will work.

How do I download the video from YouTube?

you not clicking the right thing.

It should be a link, any button that says download is an ad. Choose the highest quality MP4 and you should be good.

I got it downloaded & opened in Movie Maker

Of course, I can see NO WAY to edit out the audio.

I can't understand why this is so hard. This should be BASIC.

Modifying audio tracks is not a basic user need. Putting clips of video together and cutting video is a basic user need.

Here are some free video editors you can try.
