how to convert a stereo mov file to a mono mov file

so you recorded a whole bunch of video only to find out that you hear the microphone only on one side?

no problem

just open terminal and run this command:

ffmpeg -i inFile.mov -map 0:0 -vcodec copy -c:a pcm_s24le -map 0:1 -filter:a:0 "pan=mono|c0=c0" outFile-mono.mov

of course change inFile and outFile-mono to the filenames of your choice

hope this helps you convert stereo 1-side only into a mono track which fixes the problem easily
