Motion Picture - Responsive WordPress Video Theme

Motion Picture - Responsive WordPress Video Theme - Blog / Magazine WordPress

Strange that the Obox brand was built off the back of a video blog yet we only have one video theme on our site…

That wrong has to be righted, so today we are excited to release our latest Premium WordPress theme called Motion Picture. A video-centric theme for the video bloggers amongst us.

High Definition, laser focus

In terms of the design we have given the typography special attention as well as working on some white space management to balance out pages which feature either HD or SD videos.


Some of the features Motion Picture carries are:

  • Video embedding using oEmbed
    Simply cut & paste the url of your video and we will get the embed code for you!
  • HD selector to show off your high def videos
    Give your HD videos the space and attention they deserve with a massive 940px wide view port.
  • Widgetised home page
    Allows for unlimited videos to be displayed in a categorized format.
  • Short URL support
    New addition to an Obox Theme, we are using Googles shorten url plugin.
  • 2 Colour schemes to choose from
    One Light and One Dark scheme. As a side note when you use the dark theme the video really is front and center, it’s an Obox favourite.

This will be the second theme that we release which has full support for our Typography manager, so if you dont like what you seen then you have full control to change it without having to delve into any code.

For those of you who want to use this as a normal blog with images instead of videos, it is 100% possible. We have made sure to include our standard image uploader with auto-resizing and filters.

So, tune in to the demo of Motion Picture and let us know your thoughts!
