    What is the best free theme, or theme that can be found for "free", that is available for video tutorials?
    I want something that looks good as this isn't for a site mainly focused around getting views as much as it is around actually tutorials and a quality design.
    I do want the theme Adsense ready however, and SEO friendly wouldn't hurt.

    What do you think would be the best?

    Thanks in advance!

    @shelton sellers,

    I would tread lightly when going after free Wordpress themes. There are some out there that are very good however many of them have programming errors and can be bad for SEO on your site. If you can swing it, I would recommend just purchasing a theme. Then you will get something that is quality and that won't give you lots of problems down the road.

    Check out this article on why not to download free WP themes,

    This post has some really great options for video themes. They cost money but they are worth it. In the end, you get what you pay for.

    Hope that helps,

    You can also try this code for adding a video & thumbnail. Just place the code wherever you want the video and it should work.
    There are also widgets available that will help you to place the code.

    <?php
    $vid = get_post_meta( $post->ID, 'video', $single = true );
    $thumb = get_post_meta( $post->ID, 'thumb', $single = true );
    if ($vid)
    echo jwplayer_tag_callback("[jwplayer config=\"Custom Player\" file=\"$vid\" image=\"$thumb\"]");?>

    Yeah, I'll check into the paid themes, but money is tight right now for me & that is why I was asking about free themes.
    I might toss some money into it though in order to get the return I am looking for.
