Royalty free stuff websites and channels for your videos and other things

5 posts in this topic

We all know that the youtube copyright rules are strict. 

Breaking those rules can even lead to your youtube channel being shut down

But lucky for those that want to use music or sfx in their videoes, and wanting to avoid copyright infrigements at the same time.

There are options out there. 

 

There are the 100% free music and SFX options, that only requires you to credit the creator and put a link to their website or channel. 

Sometimes there are a chance that the content (mostly music) becomes copyrighted and you will get a notification about it. (very low chance though, it only happend to me once)

Good channels for music are for example 

This list of youtube channels all have royalty free music for you to use 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYI9qNK66LHNS9uoMqcU7tA

https://www.youtube.com/user/holfix/

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIe3BQ6Hm27Jxdc5MWuJuYQ/videos

https://www.youtube.com/user/GTNmusik/featured

https://www.youtube.com/user/AudioPad/featured

https://www.youtube.com/user/VidaduMusic/featured

https://www.youtube.com/user/OrbitalMusicYT/videos

https://www.youtube.com/user/RoyaltyFreeBitches/featured

https://www.youtube.com/user/musicfreelibrary/featured has both music and sfx

 

And then there is the SFX channels

https://www.youtube.com/user/SoundEffectsFactory  which are a youtube channel dedicated to make SFX free to use by anyone and the only thing you need to do is to credit the original creator 

https://www.youtube.com/user/WithSquaredGlasses/featured

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5bVBV8qU3fa9TYT9k4VRiA

It is easier to find free SFX from various channels than it is to find Free music, so i wont post all of the channels that have some sort of SFX

 

Then there are the license music and sounds, even though it's better quality most of the times, they are fucking expensive. Yet the possibility of getting a copyright strike is eliminated completely.

There are options here as well, allthough im not as experienced or have alot of knowlegde in this section as i have never licensed anything. (because that is damn expensive)

http://www.freeplaymusic.com/index.aspx gives free audio license for personal use on your youtube profile for the next 99 years (not monetized) everything else comes at a prize

https://www.jamendo.com/en?from=search is only audio with a priced license (as far as i know)

http://dig.ccmixter.org/ is a mix of both free and licensed audio

http://www.jewelbeat.com/index.php is a website where as far as i know, most things are at a price of 2.99$

http://audioblocks.com/ either go with the free trial or the subscription fee

http://incompetech.com/ are with no license for the music and the only requirement is giving credit to the original creator

http://sampleswap.org/index.php for the most part looks like it's also 100% license free

http://www.freesfx.co.uk/soundeffects/cartoon_comical/ you need an account to download anything, but it supposedly free

http://www.purple-planet.com/home/4583818248 has both free and licensed music

http://www.icompositions.com/index.php the license terms differs from artist to artist 

http://opsound.org/ is also free to use

http://bandcamp.com/ license only (as far as i know)

http://soundbible.com/ sounds effects that are free to use 

http://www.partnersinrhyme.com/ has alot of different things to offer 

http://www.soundjay.com/ alot of different SFX

http://www.premiumbeat.com/ some of the more expensive stuff

http://www.bensound.com/ has both the free option, but also the license option (depending on what you're using it for)

http://www.audiomicro.com/royalty-free-music has also both the free and the license option (depending on what you're using it for)

http://www.mobygratis.com/ are free as long as it's nonprofit

http://www.freesoundtrackmusic.com/ offer free music and only requires credits for the creator 

http://www.pacdv.com/sounds/free-music.html also free, but also require you to give credit to the creators 

http://publicdomain4u.com/ has alot of music where the copyright ran out 

https://musopen.org/ the same as publicdomain 4u 

http://www.beatpick.com/ has alot fo different license option, based upon what you're using the audio for

http://music.monstercat.com/ requires a monthly subscription in order to use the license

 

Here are some bonus websites 

http://www.epicsound.com/sfx/ not really offering any SFX or music, but gives you tips on how to make your own SFX

http://www.stephanschutze.com/videos.html some interesting videoes, i recommend watching the Bioshock 2 Audio Analysis

 

Well i hope at least this helped someone. (and yes... is was bored, so i made this topic)

Take care

Although you're getting free access to the music and SFX, it is always good to check on the *Terms Of Use* for any content you want to use. Just to be safe

 

BTW Sorry if my english is terrible.

regarding the copyright rules on youtube, if the content you upload say a game that you own and the music that plays is part of the game then that does not violate the copyright rules. Only if you modify or take the music from another creator without permission and claim it as you own several times would risk shutting down you account. That has to be it right?

No, not entirely.

If the music that appears ingame is copyrighted, then you can have a chance of getting that video flaged for copyright

for example the youtuber Gopher got flagged 

https://youtu.be/oBGbIG8tXIo?t=5m36s he explain better.

that could happen but^ you do not violate anything that has to do with youtube shutting down you account status. I asked former xbox one ajsa commander doshka 17 about this very issue with music that is part of the game that I upload to my channel and he said that nothing like that could happen, i think. .He said the only thing  that happens when you upload videos with music that is part of the game is that ads may show in your video and that the music that plays is listed by who created the music. My account is in good standing so far.

'Nuff said.

FiXT is a ripoff and don't touch that shit with a 10 Foot pole, but Monstercat is an amazing deal for licensing.
