    Default Where can I get "royalty free" old footage?

    Buyout Footage - Video Clips For Broadcast And Multimedia ; Public Domain Films Stock Footage Library.

    Does anyone else know of other sites I can get some short clips for private use of video for youtube etc?

    Also also having trouble loading pages on this site, IE page goes blank for ages.....any ideas folks.....

    Thanks

    YouTube is hardly private - it's about as broadcast as you can get (so be careful with your copyrights).

    Thanks Tim - and for the link to the other page

    I think I am aware youtube is a public site

    I was looking at some generic clips (not featuring celebrities etc) like this
    Buyout Footage - Broadcast Single Clip Download Stock Footage ; Public Domain Stock Footage Library. it mentions on the site they can be used for "entertainment"? so hopefully no real legal issues.
