Soundstripe, one of the Top 5 fastest-growing private media companies in the U.S. on the 2020 Inc. 5000 list, is expanding its royalty-free catalog of high-quality music and sound effects by adding stock video, with over 70,000 video clips already available and more being added regularly. The move establishes a “one stop stock” for creators who need to license media for their projects, reinforcing Soundstripe’s mission to “Keep Creatives Creating” at the speed of digital media.

As with music and sound effects, Soundstripe makes it easy for video creators to find professionally shot B-roll or other video clips to flesh out their projects, offering playlists curated by creatives for creatives, as well as powerful search and filter options, favorites, a My Playlists page, and the ability to seamlessly play music while previewing and playing video to test out the combination of both. Once they find the perfect video clip, Soundstripe members only need to click a button to secure a universal license, which will not expire even if they let their membership lapse. All videos are available in the most popular high-quality formats, including SD, HD, 2K, and 4K, with many also available in 5K, 6K, and 8K.
Soundstripe is in constant communication with its members about their needs and preferences, and the decision to add stock video was driven by their desire for a multi-media stock offering that includes video clips, especially if offered by Soundstripe. Many common concerns about stock video — including high prices, lack of a single subscription to cover all media needs, and requiring too much commitment — are resolved by Soundstripe’s offering, opening the door to new opportunities for creators who have been cautious about embracing stock video as part of their toolbelt.
“Soundstripe has always been about giving our members, and the creative community at large, the tools they need to ‘Keep Creating.’ Easily licensable video clips have long been at the top of the list, and we’re excited to fulfill that request so creatives can ‘Create More,’” said Travis Terrell, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Soundstripe. “With stock video now part of our repertoire, we’re confident we can expand our already impressive growth to serve an even wider swath of the creative community. We can’t wait to see what they make!”
A variety of Soundstripe subscription plans featuring unlimited stock video licenses are now available, including a video-only option at about $42 per month and bundles that add unlimited music and sound effects, with a full “one stop stock” plan costing about $54 per month. Team accounts are also available for an additional fee.
