7. VideoMeld

Another application that can help you mix audio and video files is VideoMeld. First thing you’ll notice about this application is its slightly outdated interface, but despite the interface the application has a lot to offer. According to the developer, the application allows you to mix any number of audio and video files.

In addition to mixing, you can edit videos by adding captions, special effects and transitions to them. Speaking of effects, there are about over 50 different video effects and transitions. You can also record your screen using this application and create video tutorials.

As for additional features, the application supports HD video up to 1920×1080 and it can save it to MPEG 4 H.264 format. There’s also support for 7.1 surround sound which is always a welcome feature. Audio effects are also available and some of the available effects include Noise Reduction, Compressor/Expander, Equalizer, and Pitch.

The application uses a non-destructive virtual editing system so there’s no need to process your files. As a result, you’ll perform your edits faster and save time. VideoMeld supports zooming, panning and cropping, but you can also change colors, tint and transparency. There’s even support for blue or green screen so you can easily add custom background to your videos. The application supports multiple undo and redo steps, and thanks to the multiprocessor usage you’ll achieve maximum performance. Lastly, the application can also extract audio from video files and save it as an MP3 file which can be useful to some users.

VideoMeld is a decent video editor and it allows you to edit your videos, but it also lets you mix audio and video files. Our only complaint is the slightly outdated interface, but if you don’t mind it, feel free to try this application out. You can download the evaluation version free of charge, but if you want to continue using this app, you need to purchase a license.
