Removing Voices From A Video

vbimport

#1

There is a video that has some nice background music in it. Unfortunately, its been hidden by all the talking in the video. What I’m trying to do is get rid of the talking as best as I can to listen to the background music. All that I’ve done so far is converted the Video into an Mp3, and a WAV file, and then kept the file the same. I’ve done some research and have learned that it is indeed possible to remove voices from the video, with a little work and the right program. Please help me out as best you can.

Thank you all in advance,

I wouldn’t say that removing a voice from a track is easy, there are different approaches you can take. I’m not sure how you “converted” the video to mp3/wav. The program you use must seprarate the audio stream from the video, if you’ve done this you will need audio editing software, a good freeware app is Audacity. You’ll need to do some reading about filters and separating the channels, so trial and error is needed. An easy to use commercial app is Goldwave but there are several others to choose from.

On the other hand, you might like to save yourself a huge amount of work and a mediocre result by finding out what the background music is and get it directly. That´s what I would do.

The video’s background music in no where to be found. Not on the soundtrack, or anywhere else on the internet.

How would I, and what program would I need to seperate the Audio stream from the Video?

If it is an avi file, then virtualdub can do the job. Then you can try with Audacity to edit the audio file.

If you have the original movie on DVD you can probably remove the center channel from the AC3 5.1 soundtrack and get rid of most of the voices. But if all you have is an AVI with MP3 sound, you probably won’t get acceptable results.
