There are hundreds of themes available that will help you transform your WordPress website into a hub for video content.
But you don’t want just any old theme, right? You’re looking for the best of the best. You want a theme that’s going to increase user engagement as much as possible while also making website creation easy.
Here are my top picks for best video WordPress themes for 2019.
VideoPro is an excellent theme for publishing videos. It’s got a style similar to Youtube making it a great choice for anyone who wants to make a large video site.
VideoPro comes with a lot of different layouts both for the homepage and the video page itself. Featured above are just a couple of the many variations available. Much like the True Mag theme, visitors can upload their own videos which makes this theme excellent for building a community.
The VideoPro theme has many features, but the version 2.0 update is all about community. Visitors can register and create their own channels and upload videos. With BuddyPress integration, users can message each other and a full activity stream for each user is automatically published on their profile. You can even charge users for membership whether that’s all registered users or just a subset looking for premium features. There’s even live video streaming to keep up with modern video trends.
The simply named “Video” theme by MyThemeShop is a clean and easy-to-navigate video theme.
Video is well-designed and works well across phones, tablets, and laptops. While it has fewer layouts and features than some other themes listed here, it’s both simpler to navigate and to setup. It’s a great choice if you want to publish your own videos instead of building a community of video publishers.
The Video theme comes with social sharing integration, 4 different homepage layouts, like/dislike buttons, and more. It may have fewer features than other themes, but there’s still a ton of options bundled with this theme for video. As an added bonus, it’s WooCommerce compatible, so you can sell merchandise straight from your site.
True Mag is an extremely feature-rich theme for publish video content. It’s great for sites that will frequently publish new videos thanks to it’s magazine-style layout that can accomodate a ton of content.
This video theme has a dark, slick vibe. You can list tons of videos using one of the many homepage layouts available. Each video has its own page where the video player is front-and-center. This theme isn’t just for you to publish videos though. Visitors can add channels and upload their own videos which means you can quickly grow your site into a large video community.
Regarding features, True Mag has many built-in widgets, shortcodes, and a video ads plugin for monetizing the vids. It also comes bundled with Visual Composer and Slider Revolution which makes the theme a great value.
