8. eVid WordPress 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.

WooTube is a video player. Need we say more? Based on the same style that has made Busy Bee & Fresh News so popular, WooTube offers you some amazing multimedia goodness. Why not get cracking straight away… All you need is a camera, a nice smile and obviously this theme!
