    Hi!

    I need massive amount of unbranded short video clips.
    I do not care of niches.

    1) i already use torrents as an option (but it is only for music clips, and movie trailers)
    2) to grab video sites is not perfect option because clips are marketing rubbish and watermarked/signed with URLs in most cases.

    can you advise me a great source of short video content?

    I would suggest looking for "ArtBeats" or "VideoTraxx" either as a torrent or off a warez site.

    I usually just edit the full movie/video in Camtasia into short clips it's really easy.

    Take them from video websites and filter them. Try to go for premium videos on websites where manual review is required - like metacafe. They have less change of being watermarked.

    Also, you could scrape the videos according to time uploaded. If you select only those videos uploaded let's say more than 2 years ago, the whole watermarked by marketers hysteria did not begin yet, and 90% are non watermarked.
