Possible Reasons for Muting Videos

I'm pretty sure sometimes you may have an urgent demand for increasing audio volume when watching videos/movies or listening to music. Oppositely, you are likely to mute or remove audio in certain circumstances as follows:

I made a video on a virtual world with Screencast-O-Matic. Accidentally, not knowing, I had my volume on, and when I previewed the video I heard my voice. I didn't want my voice to be heard (Or to hear the keyboard tapping). Can I mute this completely, so like, no one can hear any background stuff AT ALL?

I have a few videos recorded in MP4 format and I want to completely mute them so that there is no sound. What is the easiest way to do it? Is there a free program that will strip the sound out of a video? Thanks in advance.

I have a lot of background noise or crappy sound from the videos I have just recorded. I want to know if there is a software I can use to permanently mute my videos sound or background noise or completely strip it off? It is very important and it means a lot to me. THANKS A BUNCH!
