    I'm creating Youtube videos, but the software I use (Content Sam), only ever seem to come up with clips that are way too short, resulting in loads needed to make up a complete video.

    I'm looking for sources where I can use related clips which are longer, such as 1 minute or longer.

    Hire someone to scrape them for you or use free-licensed content from YT by filtering search results

    In my experience, it is very difficult to find long videos that are free to use. Usually you get clips that are 20 to 30 seconds long. That's it. You can combine multiple short clips to make a longer one (with proper transitions and a good voice over) to ensure that the video stays relevant. I haven't used content sam software but based on your question, I assume that it used preloaded clips to make a video. If you do it manually, you can combine different clips into a single coherent one.

    Try NASA... might sound strange, but videos from NASA can be pretty cool for almost any use if you are creative and can easily reach into the TB to PB range (big enough?).

    Content Samurai works by selecting images/videos and then adding text to scenes. So it transitions them all together. It just means if the overall video is 6 minutes and each video clip is just 6 seconds, I need 60 separete clips.
    Whereas 1 minute clips means just 6 which makes it all much quicker.
