Step 5. Accompany Your Video with Music

Once you increase the speed of your video, the same will happen to its sound. If funny mumbling isn’t something you want to have in your video, right-click the accelerated piece on the timeline and mute it. Accompany your video with one of the 200+ build-in soundtracks or use a tune of your own.
