Add Royalty free background music to YouTube videos

YouTube Royalty Free Audio Library
YouTube has recently added the library of royalty free music audio files which are free to download and use as background music for monetize.

In past, I made a video to upload in my YouTube Channel,  I got penalized because of audio I had used in the video. The audio was property of some music brand. I received a mail form YouTube to immediately remove that video. It was not longer than 2 days I uploaded that video and I got a mail. So I removed that video immediately, and flushed it.

Reason was simple, I used an audio which is already claimed by a music brand on YouTube that is anyone’s else property and cannot be shared or used without owners permission.

    Try this one. It has more obscure, unique music for your video background. This is a lesser known but good site.
