    I’m looking into upgrading. I want to know which themes are best suited for a blog to enable viewers to upload their own videos? Also, I want to keep the current domain name that i have, obtain a new domain name, and have the new domain name point to my existing url. How do i go about doing that?

    It’s not possible for visitors to upload videos to your blog. Only members of your blog can upload files or create posts. You can follow the steps in this guide on how to add users to your blog.

    VideoPress is a powerful solution for those that have video files to upload onto their blogs. See here for full details:

    It is not necessary to purchase a VideoPress upgrade to embed videos on your WordPress.com blog from external websites. We support embeds from a variety of popular sites:

    To map or register a domain, you can go to Store > Domains on your blog’s dashboard and follow the steps there.

    Please take a look at the following guide before going through the process.

    Thanks for the reply. What i really wanted to ask was which theme can I use or how do i format my wordpress blog for readers/viewers to submit a link to any videos they may have on youtube. A perfect example of what i’m trying to accomplish is shown on these two sites:

    Actually, all the themes allow embedding of YouTubes in comments. You can see that in action on my post here: http://raincoaster.com/2011/11/17/soundtrack-for-occupyvancouver/
