Video is a WordPress theme that is built for blogs that have media such as videos. With amazing features like like/dislike , watch later , facebook comments, play-list, low bounce rate, integration with YouTube for view counts, and all the features you need to run a successful video blog. At one point in there theme, they’ve mentioned “ By 2017, videos will account for 69% of all consumer Internet traffic ” This is followed by the fact that video is the future of content marketing. Those who are with me from the starting might know, in the starting days I created two videos and linked them to my blog.
Video WordPress Theme
This theme I think MyThemeShop made by focusing on video content only ( It is pretty obvious from the name too ). If you have read my review on textured wordpress theme, you would know that MyThemeShop produces 100% responsive themes and they claim their themes to be SEO friendly as well. Video wordpress theme has amazing 46 features ! and the theme itself is customizable to a great extent. If you are looking forward or own a blog with couple of videos I’d rather suggest, this theme is better way to present them.
Below are some reasons why :
- Addictive layout
- Optimized for video
- Like / dislike
- Show views
– Addictive layout : Have you ever experienced the urge to watch more and more video right after one and keep going ? the theme too has a great addictive layout. By placing related videos below the post and in side, it can reduce your bounce rate to a great extent. The “watch later” would also let your users stick to your site and keep watching videos forever. Bounce rate is likely to decrease with this theme.
– Optimized for video : The name, the theme runs around only one thing i.e videos. The theme is well optimized for videos and runs without glitches. The theme is said to be optimized for SEO as well. If you’d checked out their textured or any other theme of MyThemeShop, you must know their themes are 100% responsive and applies to this theme as well.
– Like / Dislike : You need not to install any extra plugin for like and dislike, the needed settings have been embedded in the theme files itself. If you run a video site ( like youtube ) you must know which videos are appreciated and which are not performing up to mark. Youtube also places like and dislike button to know which videos perform well and which don’t.
– Show views : There is a plugin, for nearly every possible thing ! But these plugins can reduce your site performance by decreasing your site speed. This theme has built in functions for show casing views, either directly or from youtube.
– The playlist thing : With this theme readers can easily create playlists. You can also create a post and place several videos inside it as a play list. The “watch later” options is quite helpful and makes readers come back to your site more frequently.
– Facebook comments : I know you would say “I can easily install facebook comments with a plugin… ” Yes, I know you can ! But this theme cuts down the need of installing any extra plugin, facebook comments come pre-installed with this theme. Facebook is the best social networking site, and having facebook comments is likely to increase discussion on your videos.

Final words & Ratings : Hoping to build a better youtube ? this theme is something which would help you a lot. I would rate this theme 4.5 out of 5 !
The theme has a bundle of features which would require a lot of plugins to do the job, this theme standalone can do the job without plugins, and this is the best part of the theme. Also for a video site you need features like “watch later” , “playlist” which are embedded in this theme. Over all a great theme to spend your dollars on.
