Video Background Music: Best Royalty Free Music Sites!

Video background music is a key factor in great video content. Unfortunately, finding the right tracks and royalty free music for videos can be a real pain, and you need to do get the licensing sorted RIGHT or it can come back to bite you big time down the track.

The last thing you want is to have your video demonetized, flagged for copyright infringement and get a YouTube strike (or worse) after you’ve spent a heap of time creating your videos and finding the perfect music tracks that fit the vibe you’re after perfectly. But that’s exactly what can happen if you don’t have the appropriate rights to use the track.

In this video, we’ll run through the options you can use to get royalty free music for youtube videos (or any video project) – ranging from basic no cost copyright free music options, to paid ‘all-you-can-eat’ subscription services designed to cover ALL your video projects.
