    I'm new to creating video scene and although I'm sure there are thousands of sites that have background music, what are some of the good ones?

    One of my favorites is Incompetech at:

    http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/

    The site offers a large number of royalty-free tracks which you can use for free. All that's required is that you give the composer a credit in your video.

    I've also purchased royalty-free tracks from a few sources including The Music Bakery at:

    Incompetech.com has the best royalty-free music there is online!

    Premiumbeat.com is a good site for buying music.

    Incompetech. Terrible name.

    "Song Title" Composer (incompetech.com)

    Does all of this need to be an actual part of your rendered video, or can it just be in the video description wherever it's posted?

    I have discussed this with Kevin MacLeod (the composer at incompetech.com) and he actually prefers that the attribution to his work be in the description because it is searchable. I used to always make a credit screen for him in my videos, but he says he prefers it in the description. Of course you could do both to give him even more credit and promotion.

    All you need in the credit is "Title Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)" where "Title" is the name of the piece.

    I use themusicbed.com quite a bit, they have some great songs for purchase. Licenses are $79 per song for non-commercial use.

    If you are looking for music to put into a video for YouTube and not going to be too widely viewed or on a large network you can look for remixes on YouTube like TrapMusicHDTV. They mix them up so bad that they do not get tagged as third party content. They are usually more hip hop stuff. If you have a client that wants that kind of thing, sometimes it is hard to find.
