eVid Theme

eVid is a theme designed for video bloggers. I have set it up to easily integrate videos from video hosts such as Youtube, Vimeo, Veoh, MetaCafe, and so on. This theme does not have a native video player, but it does include a custom video interface with added “blogger-related” functions. This theme is only for sites that plan to showcase videos within their post pages. I have test the theme with all the most popular video hosts, but I expect that it will work with any website that offers a flash embed code.

    It is great to have video embedded in the theme. But if you like a specific theme a lot. and there is no video in it, I suggest you to use Cincopa wordpress video plugin to embed a video into your wordpress website

    This is some really great information I read here today. These themes are wonderful and very useful for all we bloggers. Especially I like the Aware theme, it is bright, colourful, attractive, and a little loud. By loud I mean to say it will work wonders for grabbing the attention of the readers.

    Awesome collection! Primero- Video WordPress Theme is something which I would love to try. Having videos attached to our blog is something that can allure more traffic and hence increase page ranking. I also liked DailyPost Pro Theme which is specifically designed for personal blogs. It is highly customizable and can be viewed on computers, tables, and mobile devices. Nice share!

    Using videos over the internet whether it is blogging or marketing a product or service has become a popular way to gain more attention online. Including videos in wordpress themes seems like a good idea to make the website more effective. I like all your themes posted here. They all are beautiful and attractive.

    Really nice layouts and themes, although I guess that unfortunately at least 80% of the applied internet connection speeds doesn’t allow to stream real HD video content continuously; but I admit it, it might be the future. As I saw it in the reports of the CES, everything is going to be around video capturing and 4k, 3d technologies with glasses will pass out of mind soon…
