Literally thousands of public domain media files that you can use in whatever you like.

The Public Domain Project

The Pond5 site is a little buggy and awkward but totally worth it for these amazing resources.

​Thanks for sharing! I notice that we have to keep the /free at the end of the URL - otherwise it's a company that sells royalty-free media. This year, I moved all my image, video and audio resource links to OER Commons so other instructors can use, remix and provide them to students:

Where is the free content? All I see are Pro and Premium expensive memberships!

Oops, found them in the categories area.

Cool images. Too bad the sound effects aren't free.

If you are looking for good free sound effects there are literally thousands that come as a downloadable add-on for Adobe Audition. You can find it here.

The Public Domain Project is great for music and historical stuff though (something that we don't often find high quality and royalty free).

URL in case link doesn't work:
