    I'm just tired of using the same background music for every slideshow I make. Just got about 5-6 songs with rights I'm using over and over again. I don't need the songs to be espectacular or anything. Just some nice music with ok audio I can play in the back, while I display some info and photos on my slideshow.

    MIDI music has proved to work just fine for me. I've tried some songs from public domain resources ( like gutemberg.org ) but the audio is pretty shitty. Just don't want to infringe any copyrights.

    So, could anyone tell me where to find some free music I can use for this?

    Thanks a lot

    Well, warez wouldn't be my first choice, but thanks a lot for your post, Zwitterion.

    Anyone else ?

    actually youtube now allows you to use free music from their website. when you upload your videos now theres a thing called audio swap. try it I have 2 on a couple of my vids.

    GUYS!!!

    This was just what I was looking for ! Thank you so much !

    Kittykat: I don't know how the hell I didn't realize about this audio swap thing before, but it's great. I just used it with one underperforming video and it went down fine. The quality of the audio for this particular file was not great, but I guess it'll be good enough. I'll keep on checking this later. THX again !

    Gmichaelh: Thx A LOT for taking the time to look for this. I believe the 3 last links will work just fine ( have to check the fine prints closer, but after a quick read they look indeed ok ;-). Anyways, thanks a lot to you, too !

    Try this:

    hxxp://www.jamendo.com/en/albums?license_class=cc_standard&license_maxrights=sa&license_minrights=by+c+d

    Or just look up 'creative commons music'

    Thanks a lot, Tatoo. This is another great option when looking for music.

    Also, I just digged a little deeper on the whole concept of a 'creative commons' license and it looks very promising.

    Again, thank you very much.

    M*oby (yep, the bald techno guy) offers free music "as long as it's being used in a non-commercial or non-profit film, video, or short." Sure.
