Roundup of 20+ Free Stock Video Sites for Your Blog or Any Other Project

Whether you want a cover or background video, or whether you need it for a commercial or non-commercial project, these sites should be on your watch list

In one of our latest blog articles, we stressed out the importance of having quality images on your site. We also know how hard it is to find good pictures for free, so we compiled a list of best free anti stock photo sites.

As Internet connections have become fast enough to handle more demanding media types, people have started using videos as well. It is not that strange to find websites that use videos instead of hero images. Many like to use videos as their cover too. It is also getting more and more popular to have a video background on your landing pages and even your under construction pages. And if done correctly, those video variants will improve design and conversions on your site and make it look more alive. Quality videos are expensive. How do you find free stock videos for your blog?

But if you thought finding free images wasn’t easy, then you will want to smash your keyboard against the wall once the search results don’t get you footage that you like.

How to find free stock videos?

Actually, finding fantastic videos is super-easy. But once you realize that you have to open the wallet and start copying the numbers from your credit card if you want to use them on your site, the chances are that you will hit the close button before that. Luckily, some excellent services offer completely free stock videos for your commercial and non-commercial projects. We found more than 20 of them and created a simple table that you can find below.

In the table, you will find the specifics about each of the services. Some of them require attribution and registration, while some don’t. Also, some of them let you use the footage for commercial projects, but there are some sites that you will have to be careful about. We also counted the number of available free stock videos on each site.

The last two columns are dedicated to specific searches. If a site had a search option, we looked for free stock videos that are tagged with “city” and “river”. The number in the table represents the number of related videos found on the site. Enjoy!
