Remove audio track in QuickTime?

You can record iPhone screen using QuickTime Player. But sometimes you might forget to uncheck microphone and start recording iPhone. Later you recognized that you have recorded audio as well. Guys, it is impossible to remove audio once the video is recorded using QuickTime Player. But I do have one solution to this.

You might have heard about Automator in Mac. This app is great doing lots of things that normally default softwares cannot do. Just like removing audio from QuickTime Player. Here I will show you how to remove audio. This is like a programming but simply clicking and dragging. So simple and works great. 

File selection option enabling.

Open Automator. You can search from Spotlight or directly from Application folder in your Mac. Once Automator is opened,

  1. Go to Library section which is at left side of the screen.
  2. Click Files & Folders
  3. Now click Ask for Finder Items
  4. Click and drag Ask for Finder Items to your right section where it says “Drag actions or files here to build your workflow.
  5. Here is a video as well. 

Once above step is done, there is one last step to follow

  1. Again go to Library section and now click Movies
  2. Click and drag Enable or Disable Tracks again below Ask for Finder Items.
  3. Don’t forget to check as your requirement. If you want to remove audio just select Video Track section. This means you want to render only video. If you want only audio, check only Audio Track.
  4. Here is a video tutorial for this.
Enable audio or video option enabling.

This is what I was talking about enabling or disabling audio or video track.

Once above configuration is done, Click Run and a finder will popup. You will need to provide a video you are trying to disable audio. Here is the image.

That’s all guys. Now you will get video without audio.  I hope this is helpful to you. Let me know if you do have any problem. I will be happy to help you.

Thank you.
