Step 1: Convert the Video into an Audio format
Everyone knows that we can’t directly set a video as the ringtone unless we’ve turned it into an audio format supported by your device. By default, the ringtone format for iPhone users is M4R and for Android devices is MP3, M4A, WAV, or OGG. So, the first thing you need to do is turn a video into an audio file.
To convert videos into ringtones, an online video-to-audio converter like FlexClip is your must-try option. It’s an incredibly simple tool that allows you to convert multiple video formats like MP4, MOV, M4V, WebM, etc into MP3 and WAV formats without quality loss. Besides, before the conversion process, you can edit your audio by trimming or splitting to keep the part you like and also combine multiple videos to generate a creative ringtone.
