Q:"How do I take a video without audio?"
Q:"Is there a way using the iPhone to record video without the audio? I would like to record the audio separately as a commentary to the video from a quiet place so I do not get all of the background noise."
Screen recording is ubiquitous in our life and work. Usually, we keep actors' voices when we record movies from streaming platforms, save music and sound effects when capturing game footages, or grab the teacher's narration from online classes for better playback. But sometimes, especially when you make your own videos or tutorials for uploading on YouTube, you might not want to distract the viewer with superfluous sound and noise, or just intend to create and add over-voice in post-processing. This is the reason why you prefer to record video without audio. If you're ever wondering how to get it done on your iPhone, Android or PC, read on to see what this article can offer.
