Best 33 Sites to Find Stock Video / Royalty-Free Footage

Best 33 Sites to Find Stock Video / Royalty-Free Footage

Similar to my top news sites article, today I have a list that I think will be helpful for you if you have interest in creating videos for your online business or your clients’.

While working on a project the other day, I wanted to use some B-roll (i.e. video of things I haven’t already filmed) so I put together a list for myself. Then I realised that someone else might want it…so here you go…royalty-free stock video sites!

If I’ve missed something obvious, please let me know in the comments because I love learning new things:

The ones first in the list above are the more popular brands that I am aware of and have used or purchased from….but the other ones looked like they had a lot to offer so you should check them out as well. Obviously, i didn’t put every single one i found. 

You can also search for these keywords related to free stock video:

  • public domain stock footage
  • royalty free stock footage free
  • free stock footage no watermark
  • royalty free HD stock footage

Well you get the idea…

“Video isn’t going away, people.” This is what i said back in 2013 when i originally wrote this article. In fact, I feel fairly confident when I say that video production designers will enjoy the (exact) same rise in prominence—in every way—that the web designers went through in the 90s. And as someone who *was* one of those designers, i’m trying as hard as I can to jump the tracks to something new and exciting. Don’t worry, i’m still doing web design.

I hope you found this list useful. Please leave a comment if you are also focusing your business on video marketing and/or have any questions.
