The Best Way To Turn Audio Into Video For Social Media

There are many reasons to turn audio into video. You may be a podcaster trying to promote your show on Instagram or Facebook. Or, perhaps, you’re a musician looking to share teasers of your latest single online? This article will show you the best way to take advantage of the benefits of video by turning audio into social video.

How To Turn Audio Into Video For Social Media

  1. Create a free account on Wavve.co. You can use Wavve’s Free Plan without any subscriptions or payments if you just need to create 1 or 2 clips. You can also sign up for the paid options with additional benefits.

  1. Once you’ve created your account, click on “Create”. In this tab, you’ll create your visual design. Upload an image you want to use for your video and add a waveform animation to it. Another thing you’ll have to consider in this step is the video aspect ratio. Choose from the following platform specifications to make the best social video for the platform you want to post to.

  1. Once you’ve saved your design, it’s time to add your audio. There are three ways to do this. Upload an existing audio file from your device. Record audio on the Wavve platform. Or link to your show’s RSS feed.

  1. Click ‘Generate Video’ when you are done. The platform will do all the work for you. You can just download the mp4 video and share it to your chosen platform.
