3. Video Creation
When learning how to create and edit videos, many people turn to fan-made creations. There are plenty that can be found on YouTube that consist of different video clips, music and quotes or news reports cut and mixed together.
If you want to try and dabble in this field as well, you need to gather all the necessary clips you need form different movies. And, of course, you have to collect your audio parts as well. Instead of playing the clip with the quote, saying or scene you want the audio only, convert it to MP3 and place it into your video without the video content of the original source.
4. Create Your Own Audio Book
This is not only a great idea for children! Of course, cartoons are perfect for this kind of conversion, but many stories that do not need much explaining can easily be converted into an audio book or audio drama. Maybe you can even find videos of people reading a part of their own book or a short story! Convert them and listen to them on your way to and from work, on a longer drive or on your phone.
5. Extract Music From Videos
Sometimes it is incredibly difficult to get your hands on a certain piece of movie score or song that was played in a very specific version during the movie. But there is a way how to listen to it nonetheless without having to watch the movie again. Likewise, you can extract music from a music video of your favorite band that you can not find on iTunes or Spotify. Remixes, special versions or covers of popular songs are often difficult to come by, but by converting the clip you heard it in to MP3, for example, you can listen to it whenever you want.
