Are you looking for stunning FREE clips to use in your projects? I receive a lot of questions about it and I know you all like free stuff so that's why today we're going to look at the best free stock video sites I’m going to list the 5 sites that are best in my opinion before we start I want you to know that free does not always imply that it is without restrictions or obligations on most of these sites you'll find a creative commons license there are different levels of building blocks within these creative commons licenses but the most common one that you'll find is


cc0 is the most permissive license that exists you don't have to credit the original creator and there are no restrictions on what you can do with it the other creative commons license variations are a bit more limited it could require you to credit the original creator or maybe not use this in any commercial work so to summarize make sure to check the license terms before you download and use the footage. The official creative commons website so you can check out the details from here About The Licenses

And one more disclaimer before we start the license info for each site presented in this article can be changed in the future so make sure to always check the most current license terms on the website itself.




Let's start with the number five  on the list is Mazwai.com this site has got some stunning footage the clean and simple layout of the website makes it easy to navigate and preview the footage you can scroll through the items in full screen mode or in 4x4 grid mode this is the smallest free stock site that you'll find in the list here it's clearly quality over quantity at this moment they offer around 200 downloads which all contain multiple clips stitched together most of the downloads are high-quality 1080p footage so far I haven't found any 4k footage yet all the downloads are under the attribution license so that means you have to credit the author of the product so overall not the biggest free stock site but definitely worth checking this out




It's time to move over to number four on the list and that is Videezy.com this site offers completely free and paid so-called pro videos these paid videos are marked with a green pro tag on top of the thumbnail and all the other clips are free to download and that's what we're here for today Videezy offers a big collection of 1080p and 4k footage the site has an effective search feature and the filtering options are very useful the first two rows of the search results are  sponsored videos from shutter stock it is something that you'll find on most other sites as well a negative point is that you can preview an item in the search results so you'll have to open up the video page to see a preview if you're not a paid user you'll have to deal with the ads before downloading and after a few downloads they also require you to register for a free account but after that you can download the files and use them for educational personal and commercial projects but also here it's based on the attribution license so that means you have to credit the author





The third place in my list is for Pexels.com. Pexels began as a free photo site but it  now also has a large library of free HD stock videos so if you'll search for something you'll get the photo results but you can also switch to the videos you can preview the clips in the search results which is very handy shorter stock sponsored videos are listed on the bottom of the search results in a great place in my opinion although I didn't find any 4k footage the quality of most 1080p clips is very good but most important of all the clips are based on the creative commons license so free to use and attribution is not required




Let's move on to number two in the list Videvo.net those of you who follow my channel know that this is one of my favorite free stock videos sites in the past they've also sponsored some of my videos but to be clear this one is not sponsored on this site they offer mostly free HD or 1080p footage but they've also got some free 4k clips they also offer paid or premium video clips  but you can easily filter the free clips in the search results if you want to if you download the clip From Videvo make sure to check the license and that's because they use three different types of licenses. the first one is the so-called royalty-free license which is basically, creative commons but you're not allowed to re-upload the clip elsewhere the next one is the videvo attribution license which is the same as the previous one only here you need to credit the author and the last one is the standard creative commons by license this one also requires attribution but you can distribute the clip in its original form elsewhere so you could say that licensing at videvo is a bit more complex but in return for that you get a huge collection of unique free video clips and then it's time for




Number 1 pixabay.com this site offers more than a million high-quality stock images and videos they've got a huge if not the biggest collection of free HD and 4k clips pixabay likes to present itself as a community of creatives who share copyright-free images and videos all submissions are checked for quality by experts and they will only be allowed if they are in agreement with the quality guidelines still I have to admit that not all clips have the same high standard as you'll find on some of the sites that I mentioned before the site itself is very intuitive you can preview the clips in the search results and you can also preview the original clip in the browser before downloading all the downloads have the same simple pixabay license this basically is creative commons but you're not allowed to redistribute the video to another stock site or sell it elsewhere



That’s it for these top 5 free stock video sites let me  know if you agree with my list in the comments section I would love to read about the alternative to my top 5 list
