Adding music (Animoto Memories - legacy tool)

Hi there! This article is about Animoto Memories, an Animoto legacy slideshow-making tool. As of October 2018, all Animoto customers have access to our new easy-to-use, drag-and-drop video maker.

Click here to learn more about what you can do with Animoto today. 


To choose a music soundtrack for your Animoto Memories slideshow video, click Change Song (by the song title). You can upload your own MP3s, iTunes music or AAC files, or choose from our selection of pre-licensed music.


 Using the Music Library

When you view our full library, the list can be sorted alphabetically by title, artist, genre, or track length. Click the title of the column to sort the songs. You can also mark your songs as favorites and view them in the "Favorites" list later by clicking the heart icon next to the song.

When you use music from Animoto's music library, there's no need to get permission from the copyright owner, as all songs are licensed for use in your video.

Note: It's important that you're using the correct Animoto subscription if you're using your videos for commercial purposes, or if you plan to sell the videos you create to a 3rd party. Our full terms of service can be found at



Uploading your own music

To use your own music, choose the UPLOAD SONGS option. Select the song on your computer, wherever it's stored. Your music files must be under 10 minutes and 10MB in size.

Note: If you're posting your videos on the internet, be sure to have permission from the copyright holder to use specific tracks. This is especially important if you're using the videos for business purposes.
