Create Videos for YouTube using Images and Music

You might have seen many videos on YouTube which just have bunch of photos with a background images showing up. Those aren’t videos actually but since they are uploaded in video format, it works on YouTube. So today we will learn how to create video from images and music files you have either to put it on YouTube or to just create something for your home show.

uMusic :

This is the fastest way to create a video out of a MP3 file and any number of images you have. Notice I said “a” Mp3 file which means you cannot have more than one.  All you need is select an MP3 File and add couple of images and hit to create video.  You can drag and drop both MP3 file and video files.

There is not much customization do but this is fast. It create video in WMV format and can upload video directly to YouTube and Rapidshare.

The only drawback which I see is the resolution of images are reduced which is happening as it creates slow resolution videos and hence the issue.
