5 Free HD Stock Video Sources

November 14, 2018

When it comes to creating video content on a constant basis, the main option you should explore is royalty free stock footage. It’s a great time and money saver for video makers and creative agencies.

 

 

With a whole myriad of high-quality video clips, there’s no need to bear the costs of professional shooting, and free stock video sites are a real catch for beginner vloggers and video content creators.    

 

Here’s a list of 5 best free stock video sites that can help you create splendid content.

 

 

 

1. Videvo

•  Footage collection

 

Videvo is a large library of stock media assets which includes not only video footage but also motion graphics and audio content. New videos by videographers from all over the world are uploaded daily, and now there are about 8K free video clips and motion graphics.

 

•  Quality

 

The quality of videos varies but is mostly good. The collection of free 4K footage is quite small, but if you’re ok with a lower resolution, you’ll have a lot to choose from.

 

•  Terms of use

 

Videvo provides 3 types of licenses for the clips, so make sure you choose the one that suits your project.

 

—  Royalty Free License (or Videvo Standard License) allows using the content for free without any restrictions in personal or commercial projects. Attribution isn’t required.

 

—  Videvo Attribution License covers personal and commercial use with credits to the author of the downloaded content.

 

—  Creative Commons 3.0 License lets the user redistribute the content in its original way, unlike the Videvo licenses. For using the content for personal and commercial purpose you must give appropriate credit and provide a link to the license.

 

 

 

2. Pexels Videos

•  Footage collection

 

Being originally a photo stock platform Pexels has expanded, and Pexels Video is a big library of professional video clips. You may find footage on various themes; some clips are really eye-catching like aerial shots or time-lapses. Instead of “Category” filter, Pexels offers only “Popular Searches” which may not be as handy.   

 

•  Quality

 

Most of the footage is in HD and Full-HD quality but 4K videos are also submitted, so probably soon there will be much more.

 

•  Terms of use

 

There are no restrictions on using the content. All videos are free and covered by the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license. You are free to edit the content and use it for personal and commercial projects without credits. Isn’t it awesome?

 

 

 

3. Videezy

Videezy offers a large collection of royalty free stock footage of all kinds and After Effects templates. You can search for a specific video using detailed categories, and then refine your search with filters. Pretty handy, when there’re 45 pages of search results for “drone footage”, for example. You can filter by resolution, file format, and license type.

 

•  Quality

 

All the videos on Videezy are from HD up to 4K quality. With a paid subscription you’ll get access to a Pro 4K studio content.

 

•  Terms of use

Paid options let you use Standard content without credits or purchase professional 4K footage and high-quality AE templates. Pricing starts with $19. 

 

 

 

4. CuteStockFootage

CuteStockFootage has a pretty wide selection of stock videos, video FX, overlays, light leaks, backgrounds, textures, and sound FX. There are a few search categories, also you can browse through most popular, most downloaded and the newest clips.

 

•  Quality

 

Video clips on the platform are mainly in HD quality, 4K videos are also available. A drawback is that you get no idea of the video resolution by preview – all previews are 480p, and the actual resolution is mentioned only in the description (although not always).

 

•  Terms of use

 

All media material from CuteStockFootage can be used in any commercial or non-commercial project. Credits are not required but highly appreciated. As on the other platforms, you can’t re-sell and re-distribute the items anywhere in their original form.
