Google Image Search provides a very handy method for isolating specific license types: license type

Is there anything like this for videos? I've been shooting blanks so far...


You can do this is on YouTube by adding a filter under the "Features" header. E.g.:

youtube filter example

Also found that Vimeo offers similar search functionality when you add filters on the right: vimeo example

Specifically on Vimeo these each mean:

  • CC BY-NC-SA: Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike License
  • CC BY-NC: Attribution Non-Commercial License
  • CC BY-SA: Attribution Share Alike License
  • CC BY-ND: Attribution No Derivatives License
  • Note that, as always, you should make sure that the video really is free to use - sometimes videos come up under the YouTube creative commons search which are very obviously not creative commons.
