Cute Video Audio Merger is a free and extremely simple media tool that allows you to add a soundtrack to one of your video files and merge both streams into a single output video file. The program supports all the most common video and audio file formats both for the input and the output, and its extreme simplicity makes it suitable for all kinds of users.
This Free Version is actually the only version there is, though the limited functionality offered by this tiny program offers ample room for expansion into a more comprehensive free version or a commercial one in the future. On the plus side, the program is so easy to use and so straightforward that it requires no skills whatsoever on the part of the user. All you have to do is load a video file, an audio file, select an output file format, and click on the “Merge” button. Optionally, you can customize the output by selecting your preferred video size and quality, parameters that vary according to the output format selected. Audio files can be played back using the program’s built-in audio player, merely to make sure you selected the right one.
On the minus side, video files don’t have that same privilege – the program lacks a video player to help users double-check the video file selected or the level of synchronization between the images and the soundtrack they chose. The entire merge process is a bit of an act of faith, which may end up in an indefinite number of blind “trial and error” attempts until we achieve the desired results. Any changes in the video and audio tracks, any effects we may want to add to them (a simple fade in and fade out effect, for instance) need to be applied beforehand using a third-party tool, as Cute Video Audio Merger offers no editing functionality.
So, if you happen to know well both the video and audio tracks you will be using and you’re completely satisfied with the way they look and sound, you will find this simple utility to be of a great help in merging them into a single video in no time. Otherwise, you may find Cute Video Audio Merger Free Version to be a bit too limited for your needs.
