I’m a novice Wordpress user so a little guidence is appreciated.

I’m looking at setting up a site with Wordpress and a theme here. What I primarily need it to be able to intergrate media, i.e music and videos. In wordpress do these sort of features rely on the theme or can I achieve them with plugins?

If you don’t know about wordpress i would suggest that you look for a theme that can handle the formats you want to play in your theme, plenty out there.

You can use plugins for that also but many require you to edit the theme in some shape or form to get the plugin working.
