The 5 Best WordPress Video Themes

The 5 Best WordPress Video Themes

Do you produce video content professionally? 

Do you create video content as a hobby? 

Do you sell video content, e.g. training courses and/or marketing videos? 

If any of these scenarios apply to you, you’ll undoubtedly need a place online to house all this video content of yours. This is when a WordPress website comes in handy. 

Whether it’s broadcasting your vlog, selling your training courses online, promoting your marketing videos or even starting your own video-sharing website during these trying times, a WordPress video theme is your ticket to making it happen. 

Just a friendly reminder, though, that not every WordPress theme is designed for video content. Most are, in fact, designed around text content. So if your website needs to prominently display video content, you’ll definitely need to select a theme that’s specifically designed to handle it. 

But with the incredible variety of video themes available these days, finding the perfect one can feel more than a little daunting. That’s why we’re here, to guide you through the process by rounding up our top 5 WordPress video theme picks that’ll allow you to showcase your video content with ease.

2. VideoBox

Want to wow visitors with your video content? 

Look no further than VideoBox, another WPZOOM theme that’s perfect for video streaming.

Completely responsive, this theme automatically adapts to fit on any screen resolution on desktop and mobile devices. Here, videos and images scale seamlessly even if a browser window is resized. 

Highly customizable in terms of backgrounds and colours, VideoBox also supports such popular video websites as YouTube, Vimeo, and DailyMotion. When you embed these videos on your website, VideoBox automatically generates a thumbnail so you don’t have to manually add a featured image. 

In addition, this theme comes with infinite scrolling, gallery sections, and SEO integration.  Fully compatible with the WooCommerce plugin, it’s entirely up to you if you decide to make a profit with your content. 

The cost? $69 for a license.

Formatting options let you create customized slideshows of your videos. Each slide comes with a video lightbox, which basically means that when someone is watching your video, they’re able to focus on the content since all other page elements are dimmed. 

If you’re hoping to sell your work, Inspiro also happens to be WooCommerce-friendly.
