Here are ten of the best sources of free to use stock videos provided ready for both non-commercial and commercial use. Check the list below.

There are new videos added every week, and anyone can also submit their videos for review by simply uploading their file and filling out the contact form on the website.

 

Mazwai

Mazwai offers a variety of free stock videos that focus on everyday life. The video clips can be downloaded for free and are exclusively found on the website. Be sure that when you use videos through Mazwai, you include the necessary attributions required by its publishers. Users can also use the built-in video editor that gives you the power to trim down clips to the exact timeframe. There’s no need to download the entire video if you just need parts or snippets from it.

Pexels used to only have free high-quality stock images; now there’s Pexels Videos where you can access hundreds of high-quality stock videos for free. You can download an unlimited amount of videos that can be used for personal and commercial purposes, no attribution needed.

Videvo is updated weekly with new free video uploads. You can download videos from a wide range of categories, including timelapse and visual effect backgrounds. However, when downloading stock videos from Videvo, users are prohibited from redistributing the video in its original form. The videos must be edited and manipulated prior to personal or commercial use. Users are also requested to share the page on social media to show support to the website.

 

Vimeo

Vimeo is popular as somewhat similar to YouTube, where you can find mostly short films and videos by creatives. But there’s also a group in the website that offers HD footages for free download. The group has more than 19,000 members who have uploaded around 255 free HD videos.
