The VLC media player, which is a free and open-source media player available for the Windows, OS X, Linux, BSD, Solaris, Android, iOS, Chrome OS, Windows Phone, QNX, Haiku, Syllable, and OS/2 operating systems provides a convenient means to acces free music from Jamendo, a community of independent artists and music lovers that bills itself as "the world's largest digital service for free music". As of January 2015, Jamendo listed 460,000 tracks with more than 250 million downloads since the launch of the platform. Jamendo is a portmanteau of "jam session" and "crescendo".
The music provided through Jamendo is free for personal use, so you can download songs musicians have provided through the service legally. Jamendo's goal is to link artists who want to share their music and music lovers around the world. Jamendo provides an opportunity for the musicians that provide their music to Jamendo to obtain revenue from music synchronization licensing, i.e., the licensing of the right to synchronize the music with visual media, such as film, television shows, advertistements, video games, website music, movie trailers, etc., and through licensing the music to be used as background music for films, TV, Internet video, such as video logs, aka vlogs, etc.
