    Decent Free Music for Home video Soundtracks?

    I'm fed up of uploading home movies to youtube only to find they are not viewable on mobile devices because the movie contains a copyrighted soundtrack.

    I'd happily use some other music/sound for a soundtrack that didn't cause this issue, if only i could find any decent stuff!

    Does anyone know any good sites for this type of music? What does everyone else do? I have found a couple of sites, but the music is generally shiiiiite!

    I'm not looking to monetize any videos, they are not corporate etc, they are purely little 3-4 minute movies from dives etc.

    Thanks for any help.

    For free to use copyright free music Jamendo has a huge choice. You must show the artist name in your credits.

    Jamendo - The #1 platform for free music. Free music downloads for private use - Royalty free music licenses for commercial purposes. More than 55,000 albums by independent artists.

    Adio Network has arguably more professional contributors and the avarage cost of a track for amateur use is 80p.

    Production Music / Stock Music & Sound Effects / Music Library Company

    Both the above have a huge choice and good search engines. You can preview any track prior to download.

    Reef Hook (are you pro or agin 'em?), that seems to be very good, and useful, advice even though it's not for me because I don't do video nor particularly like to show my pics.

    Hello there. I think I may have the solution to your problem. I recently found BeatPick. It's a site for free music under the creative commons licence. I've found a lot of good music here. Much better than the crap on the radio. There are options on what type of music you want and other cool stuff. I hope you find what you're looking for.

    Rather than create a new thread I thought I would ask the question on here.

    I am looking to download copyright free music to be attached to dive videos. I don't mind paying a modest fee for what will be occasional use.
    Can anyone recommend a good site to download music from?

    You can rip the music from any of the videos already on youtube. There are plenty of online sites where you paste the link of the video that has the soundtrack you want and it converts it in seconds to a downloadable MP3

    I tend to use the YouTube music library which is a library of (mostly) copyright-free music.
    Most are so copyright-free that you don't even need to credit the musician (although I do) and some you need to mention them in/copy a bit of text into the comments section.
