Watching movies is one of many things that a lot of people are fond of. This is perhaps one of the reasons whyHollywoodseemingly will never die. However, unfortunately, there may be times when new movies are released in a language you don’t understand. Even worse, there may not even be any subtitles at all. That said, chances are you can’t enjoy watching the movies even though they are some good ones. However, if the movies are in AVI (Audio Video Interleaved) format, you are quite lucky. There are ways for you to replace the audio with the audio in the language you understand. You can get this audio by looking for another file of the same movies but with different audio data – that is in your language.

How to Remove the AVI Audio Data

Among adding, removing and replacing AVI audio, the easiest thing to do is to remove the audio and thus it will be discussed first. To remove the AVI audio, all that really matters is that you get the right piece of software. Then, you can gradually learn how to remove the audio data. In this case, the software used will be the SolveigMM AVI Trimmer + MKV from Solveig Multimedia. The good thing about the software is that it is completely free of charge.

When the software launches, you will have to set the source file to the movie file from which you want to remove the audio data. In short, set the movie file with audio in language you don’t understand as the source file. Afterwards, you will have to set the destination or the output file. Note that when you have set the source file, you will see 2 streams, one of which is the video stream and another is the audio stream.

So, what you will have to do next is to uncheck the audio stream and then click Invert. You will see video fragments added to the list at the bottom of the application window. It is colored in blue. Then, click Process. The software will start removing the audio data from the source AVI file. You will be able to tell when the process has been finished by watching the progress bar. When the process has been completed, you will get an AVI video without any audio. You can then use this file to add audio in the language you know.

How to Add AVI Audio

For this purpose, you will first have to extract the audio data from the file of the movies that are in the language you know. To do this, you can use FoxTab Video Converter. This is also a freeware. When you launch this software, click on the Add File button. Add the file of the movies with the audio data in your language. Then, choose an output format in WAV, MP3, AC3 or whatever format as long as it is an audio format.

By default, the software will save the new audio data file in the same directory as the source file. Yet, of course, you can always change the output directory before you start the conversion process. One more thing, if you are an advanced user, chances are you will want to click Advanced Options…. This allows you to adjust more video and audio options. When you are ready, click Start and the software will start converting the AVI file to an audio file in the format you choose.

You will then need the software called VirtualDub. Version 1.9.11 of the software will do. Launch it and click on Audio --> Audio from other file… and this will prompt you to choose the audio file to use for your new AVI file. Choose the audio file you previously get from FoxTab Video Converter.

The next step then is to click Video and choose Direct stream copy. Afterwards, open the AVI file with video data only. Click on Save as AVI… (hotkey is F7). Save the new AVI file. You now have a new AVI video file that is in the language you want. You have replaced the AVI audio data with the one you want. Enjoy watching! :)
