    So im VERY new to all of this so please bare with me. I understand this question probably gets asked all the time and i apologies if it does.

    I'm currently in the process of recording my own video footage for a channel i'm yet to make, and i want to get everything as close to 'perfect' as possible.

    I've been looking into what music i can use for my videos,like the intro/outro/background music, and i feel i'm just smashing my head against the wall. Copyright/Royalty/Public Domain its all very confusing to me and it all seems i have to either pay, or at least credit someone.

    My first thought was 'I only want MY links in my description'. But i'm coming round to the idea of crediting someone i guess. Maybe i can put the link to the artist content right at the bottom of the description? (would that be ok?)

    Is there a type of copyrighted music i can use, without paying or giving credit to people?

    I was reading somewhere that after a cretin amount of time, (i think it was 60 years) the song gets put into 'The Public Domain'. Does that mean i can use it without crediting?

    Thanks in advance!

    Wade

    Public domain songs are 75 years at least, there are youtube channels with music you can use, some ask for credit some don't, just search youtube for copyright free music

    Thanks for replying! I'm quite liking the idea of using granddads music - the music I've found in the public domain. Would that kinda stuff be completely free, no need to credit?

    I'm a little worried about using copyright free music from youtube, as i dont want youtube to just turn around and ban me straight away.

    What i really want is to not credit anyone for the music i use.

    Thanks again.

    They are producers who offer their music, nothing to do with youtube, they use it to showcase their work. Just because something is in the public domain doesn't necessarily mean it's free from copyright, so be careful

    Run a google / YT search for " royalty free music " theres plenty of it especially if you dont care about a specific song you just want background music...
