I watched a video last night produced by Adobe to help contributors learn more about submitting stock images and footage. One of the comments made was that video should have no sound.

For example a songbird singing in a tree? Or a rushing waterfall like the one in the link below? Wouldn't the audio be an important part of the clip then? Could buyers not easily mute the audio if they choose? https://stock.adobe.com/stock-photo/id/231814713

If there are any voices in the audio you will need to supply a model release for each voice regardless of whether you see the person speaking or not. As a general best practice I recommend you do not include audio. Exceptions can be made however so use your best judgement.

I hope the video you watched was informative and entertaining
