    this is the forum to ask questions and get answers so fire away with specific issues you are having.

    Are you using the wordpress.com or are have you bought hosting and installing wordpress yourself?

    I have purchased hosting and have Wordpress installed with a theme, although I struggle to get it set up with a similar layout to my friends where it shows lots of videos on the first page, obviously the videos would be my own animations but its in the control panel logging in and setting up I am awful with. If it a widget or an app to have videos playing on websites such as simonreeves.com?

    For starters the theme your friend has created/used has made a mess under the covers. Too many problems to get into here except to say that you can do better than that!

    If he's actually a "friend" how come he's not helping you out?

    Having a look at the source he seems to be using

    It's more the videos playing on home screen that I'm trying to achieve. And he's a guy who went to my mates university who I met a couple of times and had a few beers with but I know he's extremely busy. Is there a widget for the videos ?

    it was better if you use wordpress.com as they have it all setup and ready to go website but as now you are already on a self hosted website, try to search video plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/ (its official plugins repository) and get yourself familiar with WordPress http://learningcms.com/how-to-start-a-blog-step-by-step-guide/ hope this helps.

    You don't even need a theme, the default theme frontpage will display all posts. Just upload your videos to youtube and paste the url in each post and it will appear automatically.

    The first page you're talking, are you referring to the homepage? It's where people land when they go to a website.

    I'm a bit confused about the video. Do you want to put it there and have people click on it to watch it or do you want it as a background and set it to automatically play when people visit your site?

    If it's the latter, then you need to have a theme that has that option. I'm not sure if a generic theme can do that. If it's the former, copy the embed code of the video you want and paste it on your page/post. A generic theme can do this.
