Templatic launched a new free WordPress video template with the name Templatic video WordPress theme. This is one of those video WordPress templates, that you would like to grab right away. Here I will share my hands on review with Templatic video WordPress theme.
WordPress is an open source CMS (content management system) and currently it is the most popular CMS out there. People use CMS, because they don’t want to deal with coding stuff. No doubt, its the best and easy CMS and the good people at WordPress keep on rolling out new versions to ensure it is bug free and secure.
There are not many free premium themes which help you to start video Blogging. Video Blogging is a type of Blogging where videos are posted on the Blog, rather than the text and images. Videos help the viewer to understand the concept speedily.
According to Wikipedia:
Video blogging, sometimes shortened to vlogging or vidding or vidblogging is a form of blogging for which the medium is video, and is a form of Internet television. Entries often combine embedded video or a video link with supporting text, images, and other metadata.
Its not important that the content should be unique. One can also embed videos from popular video sites like youtube, vimeo or any other site.
Templatic Video WordPress Theme review:
Video theme from Templatic is a very good theme for video blogging.
This is a very good theme to showcase your large video collection with the help of WordPress. So if you have some videos lying around, then upload those to some video sharing sites like Youtube, and then embed the code in this theme. What’s more, you can even monetize this theme with the help of custom made Advertising widgets. Just insert the advertising code in the widget and you’re good to go. So if you’re thinking to start a new site for Videos, then this is the fastest way to do it.
The minus point is that you won’t be able to upload videos, as this theme only has the option to embed videos. So overall this can’t be considered a minus point, because you can upload the video to Youtube or any other site and then just copy and paste its embed code. Yes it is just this simple.
Let’s take a look at the features of this theme:
- Customizable layout with the help of Widgets
- Three Color schemes
- One click Autoinstall
- Search Engine Optimized
- Valid, Cross browser Compatible
- Ad slots ready. Just use the widgets to add Advt codes.
- Localization ready
Not many free themes give you such functionality. So if you are thinking to showcase your video collection then this is the theme which you are searching for.

How it works:
After installing this theme, one just needs to run the One click Auto installer and this theme would be populated with dummy data, so that you can start using it. All the widgets are placed correctly in their place. Now you can just replace those dummy data (posts) into something different, which you like.
WordPress Admin > Add Video
Just login to wp-admin and click on “Add Video” and then start adding all the information with the embed code. Finally click on Publish. Thus we can say that using this theme is very easy, thanks to the custom taxonomies used in this theme’s development process.
