Merely listening to Music, while enjoyable, is only half the experience. To get a full understanding of the songs as a music fan, you’ll want to watch your favorite artists and bands perform in their official music videos.
Below are some terrific resources for streaming free music videos online. You’ve surely heard of some of them, but we’ve still listed them because they’re some of the best.
No 1. YouTube
YouTube is no doubt the largest and most popular resource for online videos.There’s a huge number of official music videos that you can watch for free as well as a plethora of user-made videos that cover every conceivable topic. Simply type in the name of your favorite band or artist to see a list of all the videos that go by that name. Chances are, you’ll find the band or artist’s official channel, which is where they have their official music videos.
However, since other users upload content as well, it’s usually fairly easy to find homemade music videos and lyric videos for the songs you search for.
No 2. Vimeo
Vimeo is a free social video-based networking and music video site. You can also use the sort options to view the results in different ways as well as search for a particular artist or band.If you ever get bored of manually searching for music videos, this service also has a good editorial element to it too. The “staff picks” section is a good place to browse for videos that have recently been spotlighted.
As with most streaming video sites these days, Vimeo also has social networking features that you can use to share your favorite videos on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and Google+, to name just a few.
No 3. Vevo
Watch 100% free music videos online at Vevo. You can sort them by new releases, top videos, genre, featured playlists, and “people we recommend.” Click on one to immediately start watching the video in your browser. Below the player are options specific to the video you’re watching, like others in that playlist or similar, recommended videos.
With Vevo, you can make your own playlists of your favorite music videos if you create a user account. When you log in, you also have the ability to “Like” videos.
No 4. Muzu.tv
Muzu.tv brands itself The Music Video Site, so it’s hardly surprising it’s a great resource for watching the latest music videos, many of them in HD.
You can sift through the huge range of videos on the site by ‘Genre’ and ‘Charts’, or stick to ‘New Releases’ and ‘Breaking Artists’. There are also playlists based on a particular artist, genre, or current event. And a ‘Video Fight Club’ that sees two videos face off against one another.
No 5. iTunes
If you have subscribed Apple Music, iTunes will be also a good place to watch music videos. Apple Music offers thousands of music videos, but they’re not easy to find. You can start by visiting the New section of Apple Music. If you scroll down a bit, you’ll see Top Songs, Top Albums, and Top Music Videos. Click the latter to see the most popular new music videos.
Get it? Now you can go to these sites to watch the music videos you like. Now enjoy it!
