    Free music for video?

    I am doing an online video for my client. I need some good royalty free music for background music. Can anyone suggest a good website that offers this?
    Thanks

    Be more specific, do you want FREE music or do you want "royalty free", those are two totally different things which have absolutely nothing in common. Free music is usually free of cost (but not of license), where as royalty free music is free of royalty payment restrictions (therefore can be re-used as long as you meet the license). Most royalty free music you have to purchase (and it's usually more expensive than traditional music as you earn special commercial re-use rights).

    AFAIK you can use music from http://www.opsound.org in any way you want free of charge. From their website:

    Opsound is a gift economy in action, an experiment in applying the model of free software to music. Musicians and sound artists are invited to add their work to the Opsound pool using a copyleft license developed by Creative Commons. Listeners are invited to download, share, remix, and reimagine.

    Thanks for the replies. I meant a website that offers music that does not need a license purchased to use it for video or multimedia... if there is such a thing.

    That's still confusing Another Designer...

    You can buy royalty free content that allows you to use that content in pretty much whatever you like (post purchase) without an additional license. And there's creative commons or copyleft or open source or public domain content that requires no purchase and can be used however you like (either with or without credit or other restrictions depending on the license). Are you wanting to pay for content or not? And what EXACTLY do you need?
