10 Video Banks to Download for FREE AND FREE TO USE

Videos are one of the formats with the greatest impact in recent years since it allows users to connect quickly and combine them with various resources such as music, effects and also transport each consumer at the moment.

 

Creating videos is not an easy activity, because it is necessary to follow the following steps:

  1. Write the concept of the video and what you want to highlight, and part of this is the writing of the content that will be shown and if within this there is a script for each participant.
  2. Once defined, it is time to prepare the location and resources. And depending on the quality, it is necessary to hire professional teams, to obtain a better quality material.
  3. Once all the material has been recorded, it is necessary to invest considerable time to edit the material, and for this, it is necessary to have technical knowledge in the use of professional tools.
  4. And later use the created material.

 

Although I am presenting the last steps in a very general vision, without going into detail, it is a great amount of work and resources invested. For this reason, many professionals decide to create informative videos, in which they use material previously recorded by other professionals and thus maintain quality and speed up development time.

Bank of paid and free videos

There are paid video banks and free ones. The former usually work through different rates or subscriptions that allow you to download specific content depending on the plan you have purchased. While the free platforms the number of downloads is unlimited, although the quality of their material is not as high as that of a paid bank.

 

Mostly free platforms are related to using licenses and depending on each one of them, it has a limit with respect to what you can do with audiovisual material.

 

  • Personal Use: the videos can be used for personal purposes from digital platforms, projects, among others.
  • Professional or commercial use: it is used mainly for the development of advertising pieces and to promote products, services, and the brand; for this, it is necessary to know the policies of use or buy the right to use it.

CC0 license

If they are banks to download the videos for free, they will be related to the CC0 license or to one of the 6 licenses that currently exist. However, if it becomes a public domain license (CC0), it has the following uses:

  • The videos can be used for personal and commercial projects.
  • The CC0 license can be copied, modified, shared, or mixed with other content.
