YouTube release royalty-free music library, free tunes for you right here


Up until now if you if you uploaded a video with copyright music you would see that it was getting pulled by YouTube (Google). Now though there’s finally an answer. YouTube have just announced the launch of a new audio library, with at the moment, 150 royalty-free music tracks for use on your videos.

Through your video manager page you can now browse the library to find the sound that matches your video. Sounds can be sorted by Featured, Genre, Mood, Instrument, Duration and Favourites. YouTube’s even making a call out to musicians that would be interested in having their work added to the list. Any budding musicians among you get recording and fire them up to YouTube.
They have added two new categories, Community and Creation Tools.
