Finding videos, photos, musics which you can use freely

When I’m doing personal project, or making some documents, it always bother me how to find out contents (icons, videos, photos/pictures, musics) in accordance with copy right issues. 

However, you don’t need to worry about copy right issues with contents under CC0 (public domain) license. Here, I will list up some links which is under Creative Commons license.


When I Google with “cc0 video”, it shows several web services which is providing CC0 lisenced videos. 

    Short scenery videos are provided in this site, the video is categorized so that you can look through the web site easily.
    The videos in this site is all CC0 license.
  • PLiXS
    Similar to PEXELS, you can find only CC0 licensed Videos/Photos.
    The contents here is high quality, not the selection of user’s 

I like the quality of above 2 web sites, top featured image is also uploaded in PLiXS. But the number of videos are a little bit few. Below links are other sites you can look at.

  • Vimeo
  • Flickr
    You can find the videos posted by users with CC0 license. You can find variety of contents but they are not organized. So it may be difficult to find your desired content, but you can explore to find out “treasure” contents for you.


Same way, there are some sites that is introducing free usage musics.
