personal opinion. Take a day off and learn jQuery (yeah, that’s all you need to learn jQuery at a medium level if you are a fast learner).
Start by watching jQuery Essential Training from Lynda.com (it’s paid, but its DAMN worth it).
I started learning jQUery from Lynda.com and with that and lots of practive I even manage to develop fancy sliders, tooltips and a totally ajax/jquery driven photo gallery.
By oing it yourself, you’ll have more control over your website, and better yet, when you do need to provide support, you know what to do…=D
But that’s not always the best path to follow. Sure, its good, but why waste time making your own plugin when there are so many good ones out there already? That’s like saying don’t make WordPress themes, just learn PHP and make your own CMS
On the subject of tooltips, I agree with the first reply – qTip is great!
Outstanding help, thank you for replying so quickly!
Yep, I think this is what I’m looking for, as far as I read what the Codex says about that, thanks!.What I can’t find actually is if there’s a way to predefine some custom post types, that appear when the buyer installs the theme, or should I provide instructions on how to create them?
You have to create them.
Here are a few:

http://themeforest.net/item/wave-a-video-centric-theme-for-wordpress/45855 (specifically meant for videos)
http://themeforest.net/item/wordpress-cadca-theme-6-skins/112409 (portfolio pages can play videos with thumbnails..)
Its easy, here’s a quick google result:
May I ask what server supports that? How do they manage to hire such a server-monster?
They dont. They have their own datacenters.
I’ve got them on but that’s a thread where Kriesi is looking for devs who can customize his themes for his buyers for their money. (Kriesi doesn’t have time for freelancing anymore) He is not looking for a guy who will be given a let’s say % of Kriesi’s account earnings for handling the general support requests (that’s what was meant by the ‘outsourcing’) Or I am wrong and I should put on double glasses?
I think kriesi has some job for support. 60 hours a month or something like that..
