    "I am going to be honest I was unaware that Pixabay also has a collection of HD and 4K videos that can be downloaded for free. I just browse its library and so far I am liking the video clips it has from architecture, fashion, people, places, travel and more. "

    "So i spent hours trying to find a footage for my project in Shutterstock, I even check the licensing so I can use it so I bought it. After all was done I contacted them to double check if I am allowed to use the video and then I find out I can't use it! WTH! I asked for a refund but they didn't gave me one!!!!"
