How To Replace Audio Track of Video using ffmpeg

A very common use case is that you don't want to waste time using a video editor that requires you to open it up and manually import the video clip and audio clip, then manually delete the old audio track and import the video and new audio.  That's too much work and time since we don't want to go through the hassle.

ffmpeg is our solution, all we have to do is specify 3 variables and we're done!

-i Windows2019-Server-Noaudio.mp4 is our input / source file

-i Windows2019-Server-NoAudio.wav is our new audio file that we want to replace.

Windows2019-Server-NoAudio-audio-fix.mp4 is our final output file that will have our updated audio file

ffmpeg -i Windows2019-Server-NoAudio.mp4 -i Windows2019-Server-NoAudio.wav -c:v copy -map 0:v:0 -map 1:a:0 Windows2019-Server-NoAudio-audio-fix.mp4
