Thanks, Michael.

I apologize for jumping into the question so late, and not bothering to
read the original inquiry; I saw that some initial attempts were made, and
didn't work, and I love to solve problems.

This one, however, can be resolved without the need for custom themes. As
Michael said, WP will accept HTML5 video - it looks like all you'd have to
do is just drop a hyperlink in the edit page WYSIWYG - done.

If you wanted a gallery, I suppose you could roll your own, but this plugin
doesn't look terrible, was updated Monday, and (at least they said) it's
compatible with 4.0:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/gallery-video/screenshots/

It's just a plugin - not a theme. Plugins->Add New

I don't do a whole lot of work with WP anymore, or Drupal for that matter -
again, I just like the challenge of a problem.
