Free Creative Commons Content Search Engine

Videos, audio files, and images that are free to use commercially are a little difficult to find online. Given the number of sites offering such media, it can be quite time consuming to search each site individually. CC Search is one site that lets you search for free media from different sites under a single interface.

CC Search is a free media search engine that scans metadata associated with media; this enables it to give you access to the freely licensed content available from many popular content providers such as Blip, Flickr, Fotopedia, Google, Jamendo, Open Clip Art Library, SpinXpress, and Wikipedia Commons.

You select your source according to your desired media type: images, vector images, audio files, or videos. Then choose to search for media that is free to use commercially and/or can be modified. The search results are displayed on the source site’s page as if you conducted the search on the source site itself.

You can also choose the site’s old interface and view the results under CC Search’s own frame. The older interface also makes it easier to jump from one source to another through tabbed buttons.
