    Great list, by the way. :)

  • For a large selection of royalty free sound / music files, It's not free, but a lot of good stuff there.

  • Thanks for the additional media links. I have incorporated them into the list. Everyone let me know if you find more.

  • Very good source for great audio files (music & sounds) is (not free, but very affordable). Be sure to choose the right license type (the "regular" is fine for free games, you need the "extended" license for commercial games)

    I'm author there, too ;) (This is my portfolio: )
