Vimeo has launched Music Store, a new service that allows content creators download music for use in their videos on the portfolio site.

Vimeo will offer more than 45,000 tracks to choose from in various genres.  The advanced search feature allows creatives to search the music library either by genre or more than 100 categories of metadata from tempo to mood. This means that video creators can filter their search results to fit the specific scenes.  For example, someone could filter their search to find acoustic guitar music that had a medium tempo and a silly mood.

Music Store provides users with three types of licensing options: Creative Commons licenses (free but with various licensing restrictions); Non-commercial, web-use licenses for the casual user (at £1.27 per track); and commercial, web-use licenses for professional users (£62 per track).

The music's provided by Audiosocket and FMA.
