YouTube is an amazing platform for creative people who want to share and reach millions of people with their content. And since YouTube videos are audiovisual projects with great images, you'll need awesome music too.
This can be tricky, however, as you can't use copyright music without permission. Doing so can get a video muted, demonetised or removed.
The solution is to opt for royalty-free music that gives videos that extra oomph they need without you getting into trouble for using it.
To help you out, this post provides royalty-free music examples available on AudioJungle for the most popular video categories on YouTube: vlogs, gaming, beauty/fashion and so on.
The world has places worth visiting. Though not all of us can travel all of the time, through travel vlogs and videos you get to see the world and find the best places to visit and things to do at any destination.
A musical background is a great way to complete the journey.
To this day, the reigning channel on YouTube is that of PewDiePie. It has held the title of the channel with the most subscribers since 2013. This gives you an idea of just how big gaming is.
To add a bit more of depth to any review or play-through video, add royalty-free music that goes well with the theme.
Beauty and Fashion
The beauty and fashion community is one of the strongest on YouTube, capturing billions of eyes with videos about fashion trends, makeup tutorials and reviews and outfits of the day, among others.
The music that you use for them needs to be as modern and cool as the content.
Health and Fitness
Tech videos are also huge on YouTube. Unboxing videos, reviews of upcoming gadgets, news about the tech world, tutorials and relevant content for this age of ever-changing technological advances.
A modern, upbeat tune works best to complement this type of video.
Adding music to a YouTube video can take your content to the next level. You need to ensure, however, that the audio you use is royalty-free so you don't run into problems. Not only that, you require high-quality tunes that complements the visuals.
If you didn't find anything that met your needs completely in this list, you can search through AudioJungle's extensive library until you get the tune to match your content. Or try downloading some of the free stock music at Mixkit, a new site dedicated to bringing you free music tracks to use in your video projects.
