Background videos on the landing page of websites are quickly becoming more popular. With the trend constantly increasing, the demand for looped and time-lapse videos are highly requested. The question is; Where can users find free, good quality videos to use on their website.
The answer is, you can’t just download any videos off of the internet and use them on your website because you need to respect the copyright rules and regulations.
You can choose to do the video yourself or hire a company to do them for you but this comes with a high cost. Another solution would be to find public domain videos or use videos which are released under Creative Commons license.
Here are some of the best free stock footage or video websites out there.
Pexels Videos offers completely free videos. All videos are licensed under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license. This means you can edit or change the videos and use them free for personal and even for commercial projects. All without asking for permission or setting a link to the source. So it means that attribution is not required.
All the clips added to Videvo are currently free to download — you can download unlimited free video clips and use these in any project, commercial or non-commercial. The only thing that they ask for, is for you to share your experience via social media before downloading, although this is not obligatory.
