Finding the right music is hard, it’s even harder when you don’t know where to look! So I’ve created this Guide so you can browse free to use, no copyright (Royalty Free) and Licenced music for your movie. I’ve some sites that provide licencing just to broaden your ability to find the right music to compliment your movie, but the majority here all have free, easily downloadable music. Without using Royalty Free or Licenced music on your youtube channel, you run the risk of the audio being muted, thevideo being removed, or losing your ability to generate ad revenue from it.
While using royalty free music is great for your youtube videos and twitch as it allows you to put advertising on your videos, it may not be the best option for you. Signing up to a Network on youtube can also allow you to use their library of music, although signing up to a network has it’s own set of issues like sharing your revenue and contracts that last a minimum of 12 months. However, with the network option you will have a larger selection of more popular music both old and new which the websites below don’t have access to.
