How Do I Get Audio On Screen Recording Video Uploaded To YouTube?

I recently made some recordings for my students using the Screen Recording function on my iPad Pro. After uploading the videos to YouTube, there is no audio. The short files have audio when played on both my Mac and iPad.

    So the problem here is that screen recording on iOS puts the device audio in one track and the mic audio in another. That’s smart and a really great feature. But unfortunately YouTube and Facebook and a few other ways of sharing videos don’t know how to handle this. So they only encode one of the tracks. The other is lost.

    I hear this is going to change in the upcoming iOS update. But until then, the way to get around it is to edit the video somehow and export in a way that ignores the two tracks and combines them into one.

    One method is to trim the video right in the Photos app. Trim a little off one end and then choose the option to save it as a new video. That last part is key, it has to be exported as a new video or the tracks won’t be combined. You can also use pretty much any video editing app you have available, including iMovie, to bring the clip into a simple one-clip project, then export out a new video. That should combine them too.

    Thanks very much. I noticed the two channels on my iPad when I expanded the small thumbnail to full screen. When expanded, there was no sound, so I clicked on the Audio menu icon (looks like a chat box) and selected the second channel. Voila! Audio again. Once I get all the files onto YouTube, I can do away with the video ePub file I made and just link the ePub manual directly to the YouTube videos. Great!
