/ Nitesh Dutt

With a WeVideo Professional or Business plan, you have access to over 460,000 stock video files. If you’re an educator, our stock video library is available for WeVideo for Schools and Teacher plans. 

Looking for even more stock video options? We’ve put together a list of five sites that could help round out your video creation. 

Elevate your video: 5 stock music sites that have what you need

Videvo

First on the list is Videvo, which boasts a library of over 15,000 stock video and audio files. Their video offerings are in HD and 4K resolution, and come with a simple licensing agreement. All content is curated in-house to ensure the best quality that’s safe for any project. An extended library is available for licensing with a Videvo Plus or Videvo Pro subscription. Both plans are offered for monthly and annual subscriptions. Most of the content is listed under Royalty-Free, which doesn’t need to be attributed, but content under Videvo Attribution License must be credited to the artist. 

Price: Lite - $4.99/month, Plus - $14.99/month, Pro - $24.99/month; Lite - No yearly plan, Plus - $120/year, Pro - $240/year

Pixabay, (not bae!) boasts itself as a “vibrant community of creatives, sharing copyright-free images, videos and music.” Any content used is released under the Pixabay License and does not need to be credited to the artist even for commercial use. However, those who contribute content to Pixabay can get donations via PayPal, which is quite different from other stock sites. Along with free content, iStock provides professionally-created content as well. These files can be purchased by using credits, which can be bought via a discounted pricing model. 

Price: Per video or purchase credits for downloads. Clips are anywhere from 6 credits to 18 credits. You can purchase 36 credits for $325 or as much as 300 credits for $2,400.

Mixkit

Users can sign up for a free account that offers up to 12 free downloads a month. For more downloads, there are individual plans, team plans and student plans. Team plans are for teams of 2-5 people. For teams of 6 or more, an Enterprise plan is what you’ll need. Mixkit videos fall under two license types: Free and Restricted. Free license videos can be used in any commercial project, whereas Restricted videos can be used in non-commercial projects like personal social media posts.  

Price: Individual plans are $16.50/month. Per member, pricing starts at $14.50/mo. for two members and goes down for each member. There’s an Enterprise plan for teams of 6 or more and an Envato Elements for Students plan that costs $11.50/month.

Videezy

videezy logoVideezy is part of the Eezy family which provides content for all creatives. Along with photos and vector illustrations, Eezy provides HD video and B-roll footage through Videezy. Most files are free to download, but premium videos can be purchased via credits which can be bought 1, 5 or 10 at a time. Paid plans include access to a full library, no ads, unlimited digital reproductions and attributions are not required. Videezy Pro also includes 4K videos created with diverse, professional actors.

Price: Like Pixabay, Videezy uses credits that can be purchased. Each Pro video is 1 credit, which is $1, 5 credits are $39 and 10 credits are $49.

Life Of Vids

Last, but certainly not least, Life Of Vids. Videos range from SD 360p all the way up to 4K and are broken into collections ranging from clouds to cityscapes. An initiative of Montreal’s LEEROY Creative Agency, Life Of Vids is unlike other stock media sites. There are no subscription plans or credits to buy, every piece of content is absolutely FREE. You can use videos for commercial or personal use. All the company asks is you do NOT repost or distribute for download on other sites without permission and credit with a backlink to www.lifeofvids.com and www.leeroy.ca. On their site, there’s also a button to donate so the site can continue to create more free clips. 

Price: FREE (but does take donations)
