Videos make cool backgrounds and sliders, but if you don’t have the time, experience, or money to create your own, I compiled a list of free stock video websites:
There are several online platforms where you can get free stock videos. They include:
- Pexels Videos offers a wide variety of free stock footage for your website, promotional video, or any other project. All videos are free for both personal and commercial use.

These websites do indeed offer free videos, often under a Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license or similar, which means you can copy, modify, distribute, and use the videos for free, even for commercial purposes, without asking permission from or providing attribution to the site or the videographer. However, it’s always a good practice to check the specific licensing details on each site, as certain restrictions may apply.
