Today we are glad to announce the new version of Videozoom theme – 2.0. Since we released this theme, our customers haven’t ceased providing us with feedback about how great this theme is, and what other new features they would like to see in future versions.
So finally we released a new version which includes all requested features by our customers. We’ll try to describe them below:
JW Player Integration
JW Player is a popular video player, which allows you to play self-hosted videos very easily.
With JW Player integration, which is one of most important feature of this update, you’ll be able to play your own videos using this player, without the need to upload them to a video-sharing website. You can also choose different skins for individual videos, attached to a post:
This addition to our theme was possible due to a partnership between WPZOOM and LongTail Video, which allowed us to integrate their commercial player in our theme. This means that everyone who purchases our Videozoom theme, will automatically benefit from a commercial license of JW Player Pro.
You can view the player live in action in this post.
New Color Schemes!
Three new color schemes were added in the new version: Light, Blue and Pink. These can be easily activated from Theme Options. If you have a modified version of Videozoom Theme with another color scheme, don’t forget to show it to us, and maybe we’ll add it to the theme in future updates.
Another important addition to the theme is Shortcode Manager, which represents a collection of useful shortcodes, that can be easily added to your posts or pages directly from the visual editor.
You can see all shortcodes live in action on this page.
A nicely styled Video Widget was also added to the new version of the theme, and it allows to easily embed as many videos as you want in the Sidebar or in the Footer widget area.

Beside above mentioned features, we fixed known bugs in the theme, added other minor features and improvements.
