No, just use the Youtube video links no hosting

@admin No, just a site to showcase photos and YouTube videos

Actually, YouTube is in the process of preventing some video embed URLs from displaying outside of its platform. Not the case for all of them, but I've seen some that won't work cross domain.

I thought of starting a WordPress using the theme named "Devion" but it is outdated and anyone can help me to find a similar theme.

It would be useful to know

[*]1. What do you like about this theme, so that we can look for similar feature
[*]2. It is available for free download. Did you try installing on the latest WordPress ?




> Options framework

> Featured video plus

> WP-postviews

> Zilla Likes

These extensions listed on the theme page might give you the same features on other themes. Please give it a try.

I will still try to keep a watch on similar themes.

@Abhi What i like about the theme is how the videos appear in the front page with blog posts. How the video pages showcases the Video posts

Yes it is available for free download and i have tried this template in the past and I think there is no update provided to the theme as of now.

I think `Featured video plus` plugin does that. Can you give it a try ?

I gave the plugin a try and i am not able to get the option in other themes. When Devion theme is enabled the plugin also gets activated else it vanishes.

It works with the Devion theme ? Did you try with the default theme ?

There is a theme called **VideoTube** which does almost what you want. Costs $ 49 on ThemeForest.net . They also have a **Vlog** theme for $ 69.

For free options, try this link

Thank you for suggesting the theme and plugins. I will check it. And please anyone who try the theme i have mentioned don't use it. It has a malicious file and it is not safe to try it.

Where was this downloaded from ? If it came from a nulled site, I'm not surprised. There's no such thing as a free lunch 👍
