TV.Elements is an excellent, dark, video-centric theme specifically designed to cater for higher-resolution video of any size up to 640 pixels wide.
Video is front and centre in this theme, which highlights the latest clip in the middle of the page and uses a carousel navigation to the right of the main clip to showcase more videos.
The user can select a category from the dropdown menu to browse all video in that category, and simply select any video in the list to watch the video, read its associated content, or comment.
Posting videos is as simple as copying the embed code from the source site and pasting it into a field. The theme works elegantly with Blip.TV, Flickr, MetaCafe, MySpace, Veoh, Viddler, Vimeo and YouTube — and should work with pretty much any embeddable video, including your own hosted Flash files.
The TV.Elements theme has 5 sidebars, all of which can be configured separately through the standard WordPress widget interface.
When a user clicks through to view a video, it opens in a custom player that fades the rest of the screen to black.
The TV Elements theme costs $US75.
