Articles on: Creating a Biteable Video

Adding or uploading audio or music to your video

The right soundtrack can make or break a video project. That's why Biteable offers a library of royalty-free music and premium soundtracks for you to choose from, plus the option to upload your own audio files. Here's how to add audio to your projects.

Choosing soundtracks from our music library

To add one of our tracks to your project, follow the below instructions:

Click on the music note icon at the bottom left of your timeline in Design mode, or on the top left of your video preview in Script mode.

A library pop-up will appear — click on the play button to hear a preview. Use the drop-down menus to filter by genre or length.

Select the soundtrack you'd like to use by clicking the circle to the left of that track.

Click Save.

Simple as that! Your project will now play with the selected audio background. The track will play according to the length of the project. If the duration of the audio is shorter than the video, it will automatically loop.

Pro tip: The soundwaves on the bottom of your Timeline represents the audio you choose, so you can edit your video to match the music! Place your most important message on the beat drop and you've got a recipe for a memorable video.

Uploading your own audio

If you have something specific in mind, you can also upload your own audio. Here are the requirements of the files we support:

We support .wav and .mp3 files only

Below 250MB in size

Once you know your file is good to go, here's what to do:

Click on the music note icon at the bottom left of your timeline

A pop-up will appear. Click Uploads to shift away from the Library.

Drag and drop your audio file to upload it or select from your uploaded files.

Click Save.

Pro tip #2: The soundtrack volume in a video will automatically decrease when audio is detected from a voiceover or a video clip that includes audio. Watch this video for an example of how soundtrack auto-ducking works.

Extra tip: Voice-over

You can also add a second audio track, or a Voice-over, to your videos. Find out more about Voice-over here.
