Blogger never really had a design meant for blogs that were dedicated to hosting video, but that has changed now and video hosting sites on blogger have not got a make shift design but a fully functional elegant design that looks extremely professional.
Now if we move from the looks to just talking about features this template is going to blow you away. All you need is the url of the youtube video and you are ready to go. The template then automatically generates the video thumbnail as well as the featured slider on top, cutting down on a lot of manual work.
There have been lot of complaints on the thumbnails and the slider not working properly, but it has been fixed. Go to Edit Html, search for these codes -
Download them and upload it on a js hosting service of your choice, and replace the code with the new one.
Apart from that the template also embeds the video on the post page, with a size that fits the width of the page automatically, which is just freaking awesome! This template also has an inbuilt video rating system where your viewers can inform you as to how much they enjoyed each video.
To get this template working is rather simple, in every post you will see this code. "endofvid" [starttext] [endtext]
"endofvid" : This command tells the template that your video URL has finished, so you need to paste your URL just before it, without any spaces!
[starttext] and [endtext] : These are your post content wrapper, all the text that you would like to add to the post or pictures any content has to be between these two commands. If you happen to put anything out of these two lines, it will not show on your post.
So your post page should look like the image below.
Remember this template is built for YouTube, so other videos cannot be automatically embedded am not sure if its possible either. But Dante states he will be working on one for all kinds of videos. Till then if you like this theme go ahead and download it from the link below!
