Steal these 5 video website templates


Have you ever thought about your own video channel, where you can offer videos to a specific target group? It is very possible. I will give you 5 examples of successful video website templates.

Nowadays you can easily place all your videos on YouTube or Vimeo on your own account. But you are bound by their rules and you have few options to for example add your own functionalities. Or to earn money with it.

Video website portal

If you want to have control over everything yourself, it’s best to set up your own video website portal. Great Themeforest themes have been added recently to create a video website portal for a specific topic yourself.

You want to for exampl create a video portal about gymnastics. With videos of famous gymnasts, instructional videos about training which you have made yourself, interviews with gymnasts, films sent in by gymnastics clubs.

These video websites offer extensive options:

  • embedding videos via YouTube;
  • or uploading homemade videos;
  • adding reviews;
  • you can also shield instructional videos behind a payment environment;
  • or supplement the video portal with a webshop or community.

There are so many options with a self-hosted video website portal …

The big advantage of self-hosted video portals is that they are about a specific topic. And this is becoming a problem with YouTube and Vimeo more and more. Because of their large and diverse offer, it’s difficult to find the videos you are looking for specifically.

There are a number of interesting video websites templates on Themeforest, specifically for video that place your videos on the website prominently. In a matching design, with good options to share through social media.

Here are the 5 best video website templates:

1. NewsTube

NewsTube – Magazine Blog & Video is a dedicated video website made from WordPress. You have the option to add a slider and show featured videos. NewsTube can be set up as a magazine, blog or video website, is responsive and has many options.

In the extensive theme options panel, you can adjust the website to your own taste and wishes, exactly as you have in mind. You can choose from many layouts and NewsTube supports the most important channels, such as the embedding of videos from YouTube and Vimeo. In short, a nice & cool video website template.

2. VidoRev

VidoRev is one of ThemeForest’s bestselling themes. And rightly so, because it is a versatile theme with many possibilities and you can set up AMP for individual posts. Visitors can also post their own video after logging in, if you wish. Of course you can also add a community with Youzer, a beautifully designed community service that is integrated in this theme.

3. VideoTouch

VideoTouch has a clean, modern and contemporary design, and can be built with the TouchSize Layout Builder which gives you incredible options to shape the pages. With unlimited layouts. Of course the site is responsive and looks good on every device. VideoTouch respects your content, say the creators, because it’s clearly visible on mobile.

The website is well documented and features – for those who are interested – Twitter Bootstrap. The Google Fonts are also integrated. You can also install the demo content, so you instantly have a (almost) ready-made website.

4. VideoTube

You can also share your favorite videos through VideoTube, a video website template that has also been sold hundreds of times. So it’s popular. Each video can easily be shared through VideoTube through the social media buttons and the site’s users can also add videos themselves, which allows you to create a real community.

Of course you can also make your own videos without having to place them on YouTube first. You can also like the videos, track the number of views and give comments.

5. TrueMag

I have kept the best for last: TrueMag is a robust video website template for video hosting, video magazine and portfolio. It is one of the best sold specific video templates, which has now been bought by more than 2000 users.

You can highlight the videos in different ways: popular, trending, related videos, but also from the top contributors or the most well-liked. This video website template also has the Social Locker Plugin, which means that users first have to share the video through social media before they can see the video.

Another special option in TrueMag: the Video Ads Plugin. An ad is played before you can see the video. Which also often happens on YouTube.

The Visual Composer ensures you can easily format the pages with the drag & drop function.

Furthermore: a huge menu, responsive advertising, a rating system, compatible with the translation plugin WPML, integration options with:

  • WooCommerce (webshop);
  • BuddyPress (to build a community);
  • bbPress (forum);
