How to download free music for your YouTube Video (2024 Tutorial)
When it comes to uploading a video on Youtube, one of the toughest decisions that a creator can make is to assign the right kind of music to make their content stand out. Now, most of the trending and catchy songs in the market attract copyright strikes on the platform, making it difficult to monetise your content if you are eligible for the same. Sometimes, the music owners are so strict, they can even get your video taken down if they detect their content being used. Initially, this was a cause of a lot of confusion and frustration, but then, Youtube decided to solve the problem by introducing their very own audio library.
The Audio Library hosts a set of music that creators can use in their videos, without the risk of a copyright strike. One thing to note however, is that some of the tracks so require that you attribute the artist, but there are some tracks that are absolutely usable without any attribution.
If you are a creator, and want to use the Audio library, this tutorial is for you.
