I need to put together an documentary/informational video. It's being submitted for a competition, so I don't know if I can use CC-SA or CC-NC-SA works like Magnatune. Where can I find CC-BY licenced or equalivent music suitable for use in video?

I know of a few sources for music allowed to be used in video productions and so forth, but none of those are free (but not so expensive neither). Let me know if that would be interesting and I can post some suggestions. –  Ken Fyrstenberg Oct 31 '12 at 20:24
@Abdias that might be a decent answer –  Travis Dtfsu Crum Nov 6 '12 at 1:47

Jamendo has a whole bunch of cc by licensed music.

I am not sure where to find this or how to make fully certain it is public domain, but all music after 70 years should be public domain, or should be somewhat cheap considering that the copyrights on them have expired
