Video Clip Music Assist

Do you need some music for a video you are making? Are you sick and tired of YouTube removing your videos because they say the audio is a copyright infringement? Video Clip Music Assist can help.

This software searches Jamendo for music of a certain duration.

The songs that this software finds are licensed under a Creative Commons license suitable for use in your homemade videos. Neither YouTube nor Vimeo will remove your video for audio copyright infringement, because the music in your homemade video will be legally licensed. And hey, it costs you nothing at all.

You can:

  1. Download the sources, and build it.
  2. See a screenshot.
  3. Browse the source code.
  4. File a bug.
  5. Thank me!
  6. Offer to do a voice-over for the video.


This project was started on June 5th, 2011 because rhythmbox's jamendo support was broken. I tried other music players that had jamendo support and none of them made it easy to find music of a specific length. The jamendo website couldn't do it either. Faced with no way to find suitably-lengthed songs for homemade videos, Video Clip Music Assist (version 0.0.0) was born.

On April 28th, 2012 the software was updated to work with jamendo's new song database format and website. Unfortunately the folks at Jamendo did not take the opportunity to provide a search by duration capability to their new and improved website.
