Music Showcase: Royalty Free Music for YouTube Videos

Avoid copyright issues by using royalty free music in your online videos. Check out these handpicked tracks for your next YouTube or Vimeo project!

Creating an online video? You’ll need music. But word of warning – you can’t just use any track you want.

YouTube has become increasingly more aggressive over the last few years in protecting the copyrights of commercial music. If you use a copyrighted track in your YouTube video without permission/licensing, at the very least ads will run next to your video. Even worse, your video may be removed from YouTube altogether. Proper licensing of a commercial track is time intensive – and often prohibitively expensive.

That’s where royalty free music and Premiumbeat come in. By licensing music from your YouTube videos can run ad-free. Our Standard License covers ALL online usage – and allows you to use the same track in multiple videos FOREVER, without any additional fees.

Premiumbeat music allows you to monetize your YouTube videos.

In this post, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite royalty free tracks from our team of world-class composers. For your convenience, we’ve divvied them up into two common types of online videos:

Music for Corporate & Product Explainer Videos

Music for Film and Movie Trailers
