Top 10 Sites to Get Copyright Free Videos for Social Media

Copyright is a legal right, existing in many countries, that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights to determine whether, and under what conditions, this original work may be used by others. This is usually only for a limited time.

At the moment, there are no known free content licenses that are specifically designed for video content. Instead, most known free video content is under a Creative Commons license and other, non-media-type-specific free content licenses, or within the public domain as the video’s copyright has already expired.

Copyright is applicable to certain forms of creative work. Some, but not all jurisdictions require “fixing” copyrighted works in a tangible form. It is often shared among multiple authors, each of whom holds a set of rights to use or license the work, and who are commonly referred to as rights holders

To take advantage of this growing trend, you need video footage (obviously). But that can be complicated and costly to produce. So we’ve rounded up a list of places you can get free stock videos to use in your social media content.

1. Pixabay

Pixabay offers over 1.2 million images and videos, all released under Creative Commons Zero (CC0) License. That means you don’t need to get permission or give credit to the artist to use or modify the content, even if you’re using it for commercial purposes (but it’s still best practice to always credit the owner).

Pixabay has a great collection of HD stock videos, whether you’re looking for a quick 12-second clip of someone typing or a minute-long shot of future earth from space.

2. Pexels

Pexels began as a free photo site, but has since added a large library of free HD stock videos. And true to their name, all videos on Pexels have enough pixels to look great on any screen.

Their collection is also under the CC0 license, so you can edit and use the videos for personal or commercial purposes without asking for permission or linking back to the original source. Use their list of popular searches to find the most in-demand stock videos.

3. Videvo

Videvo offers free stock video footage as well as motion graphics created by their community of users. The clips you download from Videvo will be licensed in one of two ways: either through the Videvo Standard License or the Creative Commons 3.0 license.

Videos under the Videvo Standard License can be downloaded for free to use in any project, the only restriction being that you don’t make the clips available for download anywhere else.

Those licensed under Creative Commons 3.0 can be used in any project but credit must be given to the original creator. You can find licensing information on the download page for each clip.

4. Life of Vids

Life of Vids is a collection of free stock videos, clips, and loops from Leeroy, an advertising agency in Montreal, Canada. There are no copyright restrictions, but redistribution on other sites is limited to 10 videos.

To download a high-res version of any video on the site, click on the Vimeo logo in the bottom right hand corner of the video player and you’ll see the “Download” button. New videos are added weekly, and they’ve got a beautiful collection of free stock images you can check out as well.

5. Splitshire

Splitshire was created by web designer Daniel Nanescu, who wanted to offer his photos and videos free for personal and commercial use. The fact that these photos and videos were all created by one person makes them more unique than content from other stock sites.

The videos are primarily drone footage of beautiful outdoor scenes, and you can download them by clicking on the title below each video. You’re free to use them across all your social media channels, but you can’t sell them or use them in projects with inappropriate content such as violence, racism, or discrimination.

6. Distill

For an ongoing supply of free HD videos, check out Distill. It’s a collection of carefully curated stock footage, made for creatives by creatives.

9. Videoblocks

Videoblocks has a huge collection of aerial footage, time lapse videos, and standard B-roll clips of various environments and situations.

You do have to become a member to download videos, but during your 7-day free trial you can download 5 files. The search fields make it easy to narrow down your results and find the perfect clip for your project.

10. Vidsplay
