Stock Music for YouTube Videos

Video producers and those who are regularly making videos and uploading to YouTube are often looking for background music to enhance their video production. Often however, there are complex licensing issues that surround finding the right background music for your videos. It’s not possible to simply select the track you like and then place it behind your video. YouTube has a complex Content ID system that will monitor the music used in your video, and if you have used music that you do not have the license for then you will be penalized and often fined.

So how do you find the right music for your project? Fortunately this is where stock music comes in. Stock music or as it is often referred to royalty free music, is music that can be used in your projects for a one of licensing fee and then used forever. Usually priced around $30-$50 it is affordable and the quality is high. Gone are the days of the so called ‘elevator music’. These days stock music is of very high quality and there are literally thousands of composers out there writing quality tracks that can be used in your productions.

That way, you can be assured of the best quality stock music at all times for your project.
