  1. Is there a free program to delete the audio in a video I made?

    You can do this all on your iPad. No need to go offloading the file elsewhere.

    Open up iMovie on your iPad. It should show you all the videos you've taken. If its the first time you've opened it there will be some walkthrough screens.

    Next select Projects (top middle). Tap + to start a new movie. Tap movie. Tap Create (top right). Read the top of the screen, which will tell you to tap the film and music note icon. Do that. Find your video, tap it. Tap on the down arrow.

    Now your video is in the bottom half of the screen. Touch and hold on the video, this will bring up something at the bottom of your screen. Bottom middle is a speaker icon, tap that, tap detach. That drops your audio into a bar below the video, tap it. Tap delete.

    Hit the back arrow at top left. This will show you a screen with "MY MOVIE". Below that is 3 icons, play, a box with an up arrow, and a trash can. Hit the box with the up arrow. That brings up a thing from the bottom. Bottom left of what was brought up is 'Save Video'. Tap that. Choose size. Now your video with no sound is in your Photo Library.


    I just did this, on the fly, my first time ever and I wrote instructions as I did it. I'm sure it is explained much more eloquently by other people in various other places on the web. If you can't figure it out by my instructions, check out youtube. I'd try searching "remove sound with iMovie in iOS" or something similar.

    What iPad do you have? (I just got an iPhone 6 over the weekend, it has it on iOS 8...)

    Ninja Edit: If you have iOS 8 its free - http://www.apple.com/ios/imovie/

    See if its free for you in the App Store (go there through your iPad).

    Ok, well. It should be free for iOS 8. If its not then I don't know what to tell you, it says it should be free, maybe I'm reading it wrong.

    Carry on with the the free options the others suggested then.

    All I know is from what I read earlier, iMovie is free for iOS 8, my phone came with iOS 8 on it, and it had iMovie. I do know that you've spent a couple days at this point on this problem. iMovie should be free, I don't know why its showing $5 for you, but even at $5, how much is your time worth? You didn't get it figured out for free on a computer yet did you? I KNOW you can do what you want for free on a PC, you can do it for free on a Mac or Linux computer too. But how much time are you willing to spend jumping through hoops?

    Ok, I appreciate your help & others help. I simply have a video of me feeding a friendly squirrel when it bit me & out of surprise I swore. I wanted to delete the word but its not a must. Thank you.:)
