A Complete Drupal Video Theme - GoVideo

Update 10/5/2011: We have updated the GoVideo theme with the new Drupal video module version 2.x. We have also included the Drupal video embed field module ( to allow you to embed videos from YouTube and Vimeo, as so many people have asked for in the recent weeks.

Update 1/2/2012: We have added a video import module to the GoVideo Drupal theme. This module, once activated, allows you to upload as many videos using FTP. The uploaded videos will use the same node title as the file name. After you upload a batch of videos, you can edit the category, description, or further enhance the video title if needed. 

We are hard at work, finishing up the last set of tasks for the Drupal GoVideo Theme. This theme is the first real Drupal video solution that gives users and administrators the ability to quickly add video content, blogs, news, and allow users to upload their own video content. Drupal's extensive but easy-to-use permissions and roles options gives you total control of what users or roles can do within your video website. The GoVideo theme now supports HTML5, iPhone, and iPad playback using JW Player!

The GoVideo theme, along with the Drupal video module, allows you to upload video in any format, play video in any format, and transcode video to h246, Theora, VP8 using FFMPEG. Automatically create video thumbnails using this module and use video thumbnails in any section of the video website. The video module has a very reliable API for converting videos and auto thumbnailing. This module really can be used as an all-in-one video solution for Drupal.

GoVideo Main Features

  • Compatible with HTML5, iPhone, and iPad using JW Player!
  • Embed video content from YouTube and Vimeo (coming soon. See:
  • Subscribe to user's video content
  • Blog and "News" section
  • Video rating capabilities
  • Social media sharing options (Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, etc)
  • Categorization and tagging options for videos
  • View videos by post date, most viewed, or top rated
  • FFMPEG transcoding using the Drupal video module
  • and way more!

We still have about 3 to 6 business days to complete the remaining tasks for this amazing Drupal video theme. But below are a few screenshots for those who have asked for more specifics or what certain pages will look like.

The theme will come with the standard installation profile for easy setup, but you'll need special hosting requirements for ffmpeg and video support. We'll post more on that once the theme is available.

GoVideo Main Page

The GoVideo main page consists of a top multi-select video playback option that plays new videos added, top rated, and being watched or recently watched videos in the main tabs. Below that you can see a "Featured Videos" region for promoting certain videos to the front page, a recent videos region below that area, and categories plus tabbed browsing of video content, tags, or comments. Ads within block regions are also supported.

GoVideo Main Video Landing Page

The main landing page for videos includes a "subscribe" button for subscribing to a user's videos, ratings options, social media sharing capabilities, embed link options, and many more custom features.

GoVideo Theme Footer

Footer area of the GoVideo theme includes multiple navigation regions for links to external or other internal parts of your video website.

Stay Informed of GoVideo's Release!

We should have the first version available late next week (week of July 25th - 29th) for all those who have requested to know about the release date. We will run a special GoVideo theme pricing promotion for people who follow us on Facebook or Twitter. The promotion will only be given there. You can join either on the right column --> :)

I am about to buy, I am going to be uploading a lot of content. Do you have any recommendations for hosting that can handle lots of video effectively?

Should I even be worried about this?

You should look into a scalable solution, like cloud hosting or at least a VPS where you can scale into the next level easily if you need more bandwidth, memory, etc. Hostgator's VPS is pretty good but you'd need to get them to set up FFMpeg which costs $75 or so for their VPS plan.

Any video theme/solution would need adequate bandwidth and memory to operate efficiently enough, especially with thousands of videos added or if the site is popular and has a high level of traffic.

How brutal would it be to swap the JW Player for Kaltura? Would you price out a custom version?

We'd need to review the Kaltura player to see how it might integrate into the theme. You are free to open up a ticket with the specifications of the job by clicking the "Support Section" in the right column and creating a ticket with the details for the project.

We can then review Kaltura and see about integrating it.
