- Hit the 'Home' button on the top banner, and you should see the 'Add Music' button. Click on this, and navigate to your chosen audio file. It doesn't have to be music, as long as it's in a mp3 file, you can use it.
Success, you've just replaced the audio on your home movie in three simple steps. Movie Maker really is a great way to make professional looking movies from your home video files. It's perfect for making YouTube videos, especially since it's free!
