Just recently I downloaded a video from Youtube with a poor sound quality, I can barely hear what they were saying in the video, so I started searching the internet for an audio file of same video and luckily I got just the audio version. The first thing I checked was the play time and they were an exact match, then I was faced with a challenge of how I can play the video file together with the audio file I downloaded, I considered merging them both, I ended up downloading a lot of applications and they all couldn’t give me just what I wanted. Then I remembered VLC media player can do a lot of things, so I decided to try and see how i can play video with different audio track on VLC.
I want to share with you how you can play video with different audio track using my favorite media player VLC media player. I am assuming you already know about VLC media player and have downloaded and installed it on your computer. Now let’s get started….
How to play video with different audio track on VLC:
Step 1: Launch your VLC media player
Step 2: Click on Media > Advanced Open File
Step 3: On File tab, under File Selection, click Add and locate the video you want to play. Then check ‘Show more options’ as indicated in the image below.
Step 4: Click on ‘Play another media synchronously (extra audio file…)’, and browse the audio file you want to play synchronously with the video you added earlier.
Step 5: Another open media tab will open, add your audio file just like you added video earlier. And click ‘Select’ below.
Step 6: Then click ‘Play’ to play your video with different audio in your VLC media player.
So next time you are faced with the challenge of playing a video with a different audio track, remember the steps listed here, follow them carefully and you will be able to play your video with a different audio track.
