Video sites are definitely very popular and building one with WordPress is really easy. To tell the truth all sort of themes can be OK for a video site as videos can be easily added via the editor, but there are much better solutions. These WordPress video themes have been developed with special features to display videos, customize the home page and the whole website to look like Youtube etc.
The video themes that we collected are free, but they look really nice, however they come with less features then a premium WP video theme.
WP-Tube Premium is a multimedia-rich video blog theme. Incorporating some of the best wordpress plugins made it possible to develop a youtube-like theme that can be installed without hassle. After you have installed this theme you will be able to post videos from big video hosting sites like: Youtube, Google-Videos, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Myspace, Flickr, Vimeo in the fastest and easiest way.
