In the past, it wasn't easy to turn a video into a ringtone on iPhone or Android device, but things are much easier now with the rise of various ringtone makers and converters. If you want to make a ringtone from a video, whether it's shot by yourself or downloaded from the website, you can follow these three steps to do it.

Step 1. Convert the Video into an MP3 File with a Converter App

Everybody knows that we can't directly set a video as a ringtone unless converting it to the format supported by iPhone or Android devices. At present, the default ringtone format used for iPhone is M4R, and Andriod is MP3, M4A, WAV, or OGG. So, your very first thing is to convert videos to these formats.

To handle this conversion task, you need an audio converter like EaseUS MobiMover to help. EaseUS MobiMover is a professional video-to-audio converter that works perfectly to convert any video to an audio file with simple clicks. If you want to convert YouTube videos to MP3, it's also possible with EaseUS MobiMover.

To convert the video to an MP3 file:

Step 1. Open EaseUS MobiMover on your PC and click "Video to MP3" in the navigation panel.

Step 2. Convert the MP3 file to a Ringtone

Once the conversion completes, you can transfer the MP3 file to your Android device and set it as your ringtone by following step 3. While iPhone users need some extra steps to change the MP3 file to M4R with iTunes or iPhone ringtone maker.

But if you persist in iTunes, you can follow our previous post on making a song your ringtone with iTunes.
