I am trying to convert an MP4 video from mono to stereo. Can you please offer any advice on how to do this?
I know it's possible, but I have completely forgotten how to do this over the years

Thread: Convert Mono to Stereo
Do a search here for mono to stereo and you will get a lot of threads asking for what you want.I think,therefore i am a hamster.
and for the future uninitiated: here is a link: https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Aforum.videohelp.com+mono+to+stereo&oq=site%3Afo...d=210&ie=UTF-8
Of course again, no mention of specific tools for my specific problem in my google search. There are results that are close, but not quite what I am looking for.
Truth is, I have been looking for answers, but a lot of them do not apply to what I am doing. I already have an mp4 video file that is recorded in mono and I want to extract the audio and video to two separate files and convert the mono to stereo (dual mono technically speaking), and then recombine them back into an mp4 video. I just need to know the tools since it has been over 6 years since I have played with video editing and a lot of things have changed since then.

I looked through a few links and found what you needed but since you didn't look enough then it seems like you don't want to do any searching and want someone to explain it to,load the file into audacity and edit save as stereo,read more on how to mux whatever audio format you chose.I think,therefore i am a hamster.
I do appreciate the help by the way
I tried handbrake, but apparently it was recorded mono as stereo, so I only get the right channel instead of both. It seems I will have to do right Mono only and then convert the audio back to stereo (dual mono). Do you think Audacity can do that????
I looked at Audicity's description and it seems it doesn't have the capabilities that I am looking for Can believe I am so close and yet so far away to getting this video the way I want it.
EDIT: FML, I just tried the *Mono* option on Handbrake and ran a test, it fixed the lopsided audio issue. Sorry for the sarcasm earlier and thank you for your help. I am going to download Audicity, since it will help out my music collection
The end result was solved by myself using a setting in handbrake by setting a drop down box setting to mono. My faulty assumption was that the original recording was done mono right, it was actually done in stereo with a recorded right mono channel. Therefore I was converting it from stereo to stereo unbeknownst to myself. When I just set the switch to Mono, my problem was solved. Next time I should just dick around with settings a little more before seeking help.
