Audio makes up for 50% of your video so having good (background) music in your videos is REALLY important. However, YouTube’s contentID system prevents you from using any copyrighted songs which makes it a lot harder to find good music. If you do use copyrighted songs YouTube will disable monetization, block your video in one or more countries (sometimes even worldwide!) and after multiple strikes even ban your YouTube account! This forces many vloggers and YouTubers to search for hours to find good music which is incredibly frustrating. To make this process easier and less time-consuming, we have compiled a list of all the sources where you can find good copyright free music for your vlogs.

This means that even in the highest image resolution the video will not look professional because it looks extremely shaky. To create more stable video footage you will need a gimbal that counters any unwanted camera movement. A gimbal will make it look as it your GoPro is floating in the air. Even when you are running and recording with one hand.
A tripod is a very important piece of equipment in the life of any photographer or videographer. Tripods allow you to shoot steady and vibration free, in different positions and angles and are very handy when you want to photograph or record yourself when you don’t have someone else to handle the camera. But picking the right tripod can be difficult. It needs to reach a certain height. Be lightweight so it’s easy to carry around.
