There is a a shortage of video themes for WordPress. By shortage I mean shortage of really good Video themes. Themes that convert and want people to like your website. To make it viral.
Fact, video content is become more and more popular. Mobile devices like Tablets, Phablets and Smartphones make watching videos easy task and best of all, there are all age groups watching videos.
According to Cisco research, 69% of all consumer internet traffic will be video content. And if your website has video, chances are users will be more engaged, will spend more time one your website and will share the content more.
One of the best Video themes for WordPress is a theme from Mythemeshop called simply Video.
Features that make Video theme stand out from other Video themes:
- Layout made for conversion They way video elements are laid out, will make people want watch other videos, as soon as they finish watching a video, they will watch another. When users will visit front page, they will open several videos and are very likely to share them.
- Video elements built in the theme Theme has playlist, feature called watch later, play counts (you can choose to display theme count or Youtube counts for example) and the list doesn’t stop here
- Like / Dislike Theme is optimized for Facebook sharing. Users can like and dislike videos, they will let you know what they like and make the content go viral.
- You can add playlist to articles theme has support for playlists which you can include in to your posts.
- Optimized for Speed Another important feature which is not available in all video optimized themes is Featured image for videos. That means that instead of a video you can choose a featured image and decrease page load time and improve conversion as you can show exactly what you want to your visitors
Video theme has 3 layouts you can choose each optimized for more clicks.
Integrated AD System
Video has built in AD management system so that you don’t have to install additional plugins and thus keep the website fast.
You can add an AD to a header, below the post, below the post content and you can even enable that an AD is shown after X number of days.
Unlike some themes where you are only able to select couple of fonts, Video will surprise you with a Google Fonts selections of more than 600 fonts
There are many WordPress users would like to run a Video website in their native language. Usually translation is done via plugins but in case of Video theme I am happy to tell you that it features Translation Panel built in. RTL is supported natively. You can easily translate English words to your native language. Users who are looking for video theme with left to right support will be happy that it will display their mother language perfectly.
Schema.org (rich snippets) is integrated in the theme meaning that search engines will know more about your content. Video is also SEO optimized like all of Mythemeshop themes.
Theme is optimized for speed meaning that Search will love it.
You are able to choose unlimited sidebars, you can choose your own color scheme and you can easily change the background, from image background to color. All of this without touching the code. Icons are retina ready which is really important for OS X users.
Video theme from Mythemeshop is a great video theme. It has all the elements which are needed for a highly successful website. Theme is built with the most important features for SEO – Schema and fast load time. Still, some theme creators build themes without child theme support. Video has support for child themes, meaning that any updates you do, will remain intact when you update to the latest release.
I have only positive experiences with Mythemeshop, their support is great and I mean really great, they respond almost instantly and will find a solution to your problem or modification.
