Here at SquareStudio we've made it our duty, to find you the top five stock videos for you video backgrounds. Whether it is a video of the galaxy in all its glory or an epic clip surfing a big wave. You will find your perfect video on one of these five websites and it will be completely FREE! 


VIMEO

Squarespace Video Backgrounds | Stock Video Websites - Vimeo | SquareStudio Plugins & Development

The first website I have for you is Vimeo, who are providing HD quality footage of everything and anything you could ever think of. Some are better than others, with clips such as 'ashtray' coming across slightly amateur.  But then you find a delicate capture of a single butterfly taking rest on a leaf and your faith is restored.

Squarespace Video Backgrounds | Stock Video Websites - Videvo | SquareStudio Plugins & Development

Our next is Videvo, a website that draws you in with its very own video background with clips of a treetop canopy and undersea world. The stock quality isn't as strong as its competitors but the clips are quick to download and the website is easy to navigate.
