Q: “I recently after subscribing to Spotify Premium. But I still cannot find a way to add Spotify to VideoPad video projects. I’d like to use Spotify music as the background music. Please help!!”

Well, video editing is today not only a thing for professional video editors but also an essential skill for social media fans. Apart from the skills, the choice of video editing tool determines the quality of video you get, and the VideoPad Video Editor has been a favorite software choice for many. The tool features complementing plugins such as Mixpad, a sound-editing program, PhotoPad, and an image editor.

Among its functions is the immense ability to add background music to videos.
