Once you’ve added the video, you should move to the music section to finally add music to video.
There are several ways of adding background music to your video. You can find a variety of tracks in our Music Library. As the tracks come with a “rights reserved” tag, the free version of the final video won’t be available for commercial use. You are also free to upload and add your own audio file.

Once you are done with adding music to your video, make sure you go to the “Preview” section and click on “Free Preview” to check the final video.
Remember that you can go back and edit the video anytime. In case there is anything you want to add or change the audio, the video will be saved in the “My Videos” section.
