Thread: Stock Footage Source

  1. Default Stock Footage Source

    I am working on a memorial film for a family member and I would like to add a short stock footage clip to introduce the World War 2 era.
    Could someone recommend a good source of stock video footage that is free or very affordable?
    Thanks for the help.

    As it's not for commercial use I will recommend YouTube.

    I have done a little research on downloading and reformatting YouTube video, but I haven't come across very clear answers on doing either.
    Any suggestions on this would be very helpful as well.

    Find the material you want on YouTube. Then open another browser and go to SaveTube - Save YouTube Videos

    Copy and past the the web address of the YouTube video. The site will then give you the option to download a copy of the movie. When you have saved the movie it will need converting from the .flv format to an .avi format. There are free download programs that will do this. I have used AnyVideoConverter in the past to do this successfully.

    Good luck.
