"YouTube is also providing some 7,500 royalty-free sound effects and background music tracks too and they're available right this instant."

Crappy compressed quality, most at 128kbps. There's an infinite number of good sounding full-resolution WAV tracks out there at affordable prices if you look around. And many starving composers who would gladly work on modest productions at economical rates.

Not youtube and not free........but if anyone is interested there are very affordable sound effects packs that can be found at this site: http://rocksuresoundz.com
There are between 80-200 high quality sfx in each pack ( $6-95 per pack)......and you can preview a selection of the sounds from each pack.

I had a run through a bunch of the youtube tracks and wasn't that impressed with sound quality, or knowing that they will become so ubiquitous that using a piece for your work instantly categorises it as low-cost amateur.

I generally use www.premiumbeat.com for royalty free and reasonably priced themes and beds.

For royalty free music try https://www.amazingmusictracks.com/

They have an extensive music library with music in all types of moods and genres and it's very affordable. They also just launched a section with music for free.
