Your Windows 7 computer came with a number of useful free programs. Part of these programs is a suite of applications called Windows Live Essentials, and it includes Windows Live Movie Maker. This is a simple-to-use video editing program that you can use for a number of different purposes, including the removal of audio from videos. So if you have an iPhone video from which you want to remove the audio, then this program will help you accomplish that.
Delete Audio from an iPhone Video with Windows Live Movie Maker
This procedure is going to assume that you already have the video on your computer. If you do not, you can transfer it over through iTunes, or you can upload it to a cloud storage service like Dropbox or SkyDrive. My personal preference is to use Dropbox, because it has an automatic upload feature for pictures and videos. You can learn more about it here. But continue reading below to remove the audio from your iPhone video.
Step 1: Right-click your iPhone video, click Open with, then click Windows Live Movie maker.
