If the background noise is on the original video, then you would need to save the audio out as a separate file and use a sound editing program such as Audacity (it's a free download) to try to reduce the background noise (it's unlikely you'll be able to remove all of it). Once you've done that, you would need to import this new audio file into Movie Maker, add it to the Audio/Music track, align it so that the audio syncs up with the video and mute the audio on the original video.

How can I store/export the audio-track in MovieMaker, so I can import it into Audacity? I could not find such a function in Movie Maker, just copying the audio-part to the clipboard seems possible. Thanks for any tipp how to reduce background noise. And - when Audacity is new to me - what function there to use to reduce background noise? Thanks

Hi ABAck.

Many programs like SUPER Converter, MediaConverter, etc. can convert a video soundtrack to a audio file.

But if you want to do it in Movie Maker, create a new project, then in Timeline view drag the clip from the collection to the audio track. Publish/Save this as a finished "movie", and Movie Maker will automatically create a WMA file for you. (Note: this isn't much use if you want to use the file in Audacity, since it prefers WAV and MP3 to WMA!)

Audacity has hiss removal and click removal filters, a high pass filter (to get rid of deep noises), a low pass filter (to get rid of high noises), and a wide variety of equalisers and other filters. The best thing is just to experiment, with a lot of trial and error, until you find a combination that works for you.
