Camtasia, formerly Camtasia Studio, is a software suite dedicated to helping you produce video tutorials. Created and published by TechSmith, Camtasia consists of two major components: Camtasia Recorder and Camtasia Editor.

I myself used Camtasia to make video tutorials, too. Video tutorials are really easy to become boring and dull. Perfect background music is just like the icing on the cake for a video tutorial. In order to add more fun to your video tutorial and attract your audiences from the first beginning, a piece of refreshing background music is essential.

Why You Can't Directly Use Apple Music as Background Music

However, DRM protection makes things difficult for us. Of course, you can look for songs without DRM, but that's time-consuming and there could be some extra cost. For Apple Music Users, Apple Music is the most convenient source since we've already spent so much time on listening to music on the app every day and maybe you've already had a background music playlist prepared during the streaming.

Everything seems ready except a reliable tool to crack DRM - ViWizard DRM Audio Converter will undertake the task. As a one-stop audio converting solution, ViWizard is comprehensive, powerful, yet simple.

The first and most important setting is the output format setting. Open the "Format" panel at the bottom right and from the pop-up window you need to select the right output format out of 6 options: MP3, M4A, AAC, FLAC, WAV, and M4B. MP3 is recommended. After that, you can move on to adjust the codec, channel, sample rate, bit rate, and the quality of the output audios. Click "OK" to confirm the changes. On each column of the audio track, there is a for audio editing.

Step 3Convert DRM-ed Audios to DRM-free MP3 files

Before the conversion start, if the default output path doesn't meet your need, you should reconfirm which folder to place the converted files. Then, the last step is to click "Convert" button at the bottom right and wait for the converting process done.

Extra Tips to Camtasia Background Music

To make your background music cooler, you can also add some special effects to the music. For example, "Fade in" and "Fade out" can make the background music less abrupt. Also, you can speed up or slow down the music.
