Swift: Merge audio and video files

Question!

I want to merge a video with an audio file, but i wasn't able to do that. Video gets exported but audio file don't wants to be merged :)

func mergeAudio(audioURL: NSURL, moviePathUrl: NSURL, savePathUrl: NSURL) {
    var composition = AVMutableComposition()
    let trackVideo:AVMutableCompositionTrack = composition.addMutableTrackWithMediaType(AVMediaTypeVideo, preferredTrackID: CMPersistentTrackID())
    let trackAudio:AVMutableCompositionTrack = composition.addMutableTrackWithMediaType(AVMediaTypeAudio, preferredTrackID: CMPersistentTrackID())
    let option = NSDictionary(object: true, forKey: "AVURLAssetPreferPreciseDurationAndTimingKey")
    let sourceAsset = AVURLAsset(URL: moviePathUrl, options: option)
    let audioAsset = AVURLAsset(URL: audioURL, options: option)

    println(sourceAsset)
    println("playable: \(sourceAsset.playable)")
    println("exportable: \(sourceAsset.exportable)")
    println("readable: \(sourceAsset.readable)")

    let tracks = sourceAsset.tracksWithMediaType(AVMediaTypeVideo)
    let audios = audioAsset.tracksWithMediaType(AVMediaTypeAudio)

    if tracks.count > 0 {
        let assetTrack:AVAssetTrack = tracks[0] as AVAssetTrack
        let assetTrackAudio:AVAssetTrack = audios[0] as AVAssetTrack

        let audioDuration:CMTime = assetTrackAudio.timeRange.duration
        let audioSeconds:Float64 = CMTimeGetSeconds(assetTrackAudio.timeRange.duration)
        println(audioSeconds)

        trackVideo.insertTimeRange(CMTimeRangeMake(kCMTimeZero,audioDuration), ofTrack: assetTrack, atTime: kCMTimeZero, error: nil)
        trackAudio.insertTimeRange(CMTimeRangeMake(kCMTimeZero,audioDuration), ofTrack: assetTrackAudio, atTime: kCMTimeZero, error: nil)
    }

    var assetExport: AVAssetExportSession = AVAssetExportSession(asset: composition, presetName: AVAssetExportPresetPassthrough)
    assetExport.outputFileType = AVFileTypeMPEG4
    assetExport.outputURL = savePathUrl
    self.tmpMovieURL = savePathUrl
    assetExport.shouldOptimizeForNetworkUse = true
    assetExport.exportAsynchronouslyWithCompletionHandler({
        self.performSegueWithIdentifier("previewSegue", sender: self)
    })

}

Where is the problem? What am i missing?

I was looking for code to Merge audio and video files into one video but couldn't find anywhere so after spending hours while reading apple docs I wrote this code.

NOTE : This is tested and 100% working code for me.

Stap : 1 Import this modules in your viewController.

import UIKit
import AVFoundation
import AVKit
import AssetsLibrary

step 2: Add this function in your code

func mergeFilesWithUrl(videoUrl:NSURL, audioUrl:NSURL)
{
    let mixComposition : AVMutableComposition = AVMutableComposition()
    var mutableCompositionVideoTrack : [AVMutableCompositionTrack] = []
    var mutableCompositionAudioTrack : [AVMutableCompositionTrack] = []
    let totalVideoCompositionInstruction : AVMutableVideoCompositionInstruction = AVMutableVideoCompositionInstruction()


    //start merge

    let aVideoAsset : AVAsset = AVAsset(URL: videoUrl)
    let aAudioAsset : AVAsset = AVAsset(URL: audioUrl)

    mutableCompositionVideoTrack.append(mixComposition.addMutableTrackWithMediaType(AVMediaTypeVideo, preferredTrackID: kCMPersistentTrackID_Invalid))
    mutableCompositionAudioTrack.append( mixComposition.addMutableTrackWithMediaType(AVMediaTypeAudio, preferredTrackID: kCMPersistentTrackID_Invalid))

    let aVideoAssetTrack : AVAssetTrack = aVideoAsset.tracksWithMediaType(AVMediaTypeVideo)[0]
    let aAudioAssetTrack : AVAssetTrack = aAudioAsset.tracksWithMediaType(AVMediaTypeAudio)[0]



    do{
        try mutableCompositionVideoTrack[0].insertTimeRange(CMTimeRangeMake(kCMTimeZero, aVideoAssetTrack.timeRange.duration), ofTrack: aVideoAssetTrack, atTime: kCMTimeZero)

        //In my case my audio file is longer then video file so i took videoAsset duration
        //instead of audioAsset duration

        try mutableCompositionAudioTrack[0].insertTimeRange(CMTimeRangeMake(kCMTimeZero, aVideoAssetTrack.timeRange.duration), ofTrack: aAudioAssetTrack, atTime: kCMTimeZero)

        //Use this instead above line if your audiofile and video file's playing durations are same

        //            try mutableCompositionAudioTrack[0].insertTimeRange(CMTimeRangeMake(kCMTimeZero, aVideoAssetTrack.timeRange.duration), ofTrack: aAudioAssetTrack, atTime: kCMTimeZero)

    }catch{

    }

    totalVideoCompositionInstruction.timeRange = CMTimeRangeMake(kCMTimeZero,aVideoAssetTrack.timeRange.duration )

    let mutableVideoComposition : AVMutableVideoComposition = AVMutableVideoComposition()
    mutableVideoComposition.frameDuration = CMTimeMake(1, 30)

    mutableVideoComposition.renderSize = CGSizeMake(1280,720)

    //        playerItem = AVPlayerItem(asset: mixComposition)
    //        player = AVPlayer(playerItem: playerItem!)
    //
    //
    //        AVPlayerVC.player = player



    //find your video on this URl
    let savePathUrl : NSURL = NSURL(fileURLWithPath: NSHomeDirectory() + "/Documents/newVideo.mp4")

    let assetExport: AVAssetExportSession = AVAssetExportSession(asset: mixComposition, presetName: AVAssetExportPresetHighestQuality)!
    assetExport.outputFileType = AVFileTypeMPEG4
    assetExport.outputURL = savePathUrl
    assetExport.shouldOptimizeForNetworkUse = true

    assetExport.exportAsynchronouslyWithCompletionHandler { () -> Void in
        switch assetExport.status {

        case AVAssetExportSessionStatus.Completed:

            //Uncomment this if u want to store your video in asset

            //let assetsLib = ALAssetsLibrary()
            //assetsLib.writeVideoAtPathToSavedPhotosAlbum(savePathUrl, completionBlock: nil)

            print("success")
        case  AVAssetExportSessionStatus.Failed:
            print("failed \(assetExport.error)")
        case AVAssetExportSessionStatus.Cancelled:
            print("cancelled \(assetExport.error)")
        default:
            print("complete")
        }
    }


}

Step 3: Call function where u want like this

let videoUrl : NSURL =  NSURL(fileURLWithPath: NSBundle.mainBundle().pathForResource("SampleVideo", ofType: "mp4")!)
let audioUrl : NSURL = NSURL(fileURLWithPath: NSBundle.mainBundle().pathForResource("SampleAudio", ofType: "mp3")!)

mergeFilesWithUrl(videoUrl, audioUrl: audioUrl)

hope this will help you and will save your time.

I for it to work, I wrote this code.

    assetExport.exportAsynchronouslyWithCompletionHandler { () -> Void in
        switch assetExport.status {
        case AVAssetExportSessionStatus.Completed:
            let assetsLib = ALAssetsLibrary()
            assetsLib.writeVideoAtPathToSavedPhotosAlbum(savePathUrl, completionBlock: nil)
        case  AVAssetExportSessionStatus.Failed:
            println("failed \(assetExport.error)")
        case AVAssetExportSessionStatus.Cancelled:
            println("cancelled \(assetExport.error)")
        default:
            println("complete")
        }
    }

Also, please note that such can not be overwritten with the same file name.
