Reader Omar Cortés Zapata over on our Facebook Page asked: “Please, some tips regarding with where to buy music videos online, preferable full HD. This is actually one area we’re going to look more at in 2012, as we think video DJing is a good way to pull away from the pack. But at the moment we’re just starting our learning in this area (expect a review of the MixVibes VDJ product next month), and we have to admit we’re not sure of the answer to this question.

Digital DJ Tips says:

Reader Lenny Sultana from the UK tells us that full HD download sites are pretty much non-existent due to bandwidth considerations, older material not even being mastered in HD, and the fact that in most common venues audiences wouldn’t notice the difference.

He then goes on to highlight Mixmash and Promo Only as good places for general music videos (the former is UK-based, the latter seems to be more international). However, we’re hoping you, our readers, can help us out with some more firm ideas for Omar. So over to you. Can you help? Are you a video DJ who has good regular legal sources for music videos? Telling us where you are and what styles the services you use can provide would be useful. Please add your advice below.
