100+ Open Audio and Video Datasets

Originally posted to, July 30, 2021.

At Twine, we specialize in helping AI companies create high-quality custom audio and video AI datasets.

During conversations with clients, we often get asked if there are any off-the-shelf audio and video datasets we would recommend, for testing and for them to use as a point of comparison with custom approaches.

When we started searching for lists of datasets it was very surprising how limited they were.

To address this, we have put together a list of 100+ open audio and video datasets. The datasets listed below all contain the number of recordings in each dataset, the number of participants involved, the languages of the speech content, the file size, and file type.

We have also put together an Airtable of this dataset list so that you can easily search, filter, edit and export it yourself. Please click the link below if you would like to access it:
