Suggestions for free fireplace videos


#1

I know that this is an odd question, but I need some help. :slight_smile: For a project I need the video of a fireplace. Like this:

The video should run in the background on a TV (just for a nice ambience). The video has the advantage that we don’t need to make a real fire :slight_smile: .

On YouTube there are uncountable fireplace videos. Has anyone ever used one of these? And does someone coincidentally know if there is a fireplace video that is free to use (maybe licensed under a Creative Commons License)? Until now I’ve just found copyrighted videos.

(btw: No, I can’t use a video of the TWP fireplace :wink: )

Just in case it’s an option you haven’t considered - there used to be a channel on Sky that showed the same on a loop. When the coals burnt right down it would start from the beginning again (as we discovered one Christmas when curiousity got the better of us :smile:). But I don’t know if it still exists or if you have an equivalent channel.


#3

Sadly no. (Beside that I doubt that we can use these videos :wink: ).

But on the last Christmas (… I gave you my heart … :ear::snake:) the German TV channel Tele5 showed a fireplace for … hm … one or two hours.

Super RTL?


#5

Copyrighted material.

btw: Are they still showing the fireplace? And didn’t they have a fish tank? :thinking:


#6

Don´t know about that fish tank. The only current end of broadcast loop I know of at the moment is Bernd das Brot.


#7

What happened to the “Sexy Sportclips” on Sport1?


#8

Do you need the crackling fire sound or not?


#9

The video would be enough, but it should run/loop for 2 hours.


#10

I got too old for them, so they don´t see any need to show them anymore.


#11

It looks like this one is free to use:


#12

Sure? I haven’t found any license information…


#13
Does it need to be wood?

#14

Yes. (And real wood, not Ed Wood.)


#15

How about “not real Ed Wood”?


#16

No. Not not real not-real Ed Wood-wood. In the wood. Or something like this.


#17

So just how much Ed Wood would suffice?


#18

Six. But only if they have a crackling sound and will burn for 2 hours…


#19

Exactly. If in doubt, I suggest you to ask the author.


#20

Okay so here is real Ed Wood
