With this extension you can easily embed videos and images from several sites like Youtube and Vimeo
This extension enables a snippet to add oEmbed (http://www.oembed.com/) to your site.
With this extension you can add tags like [[embed url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EK2tWVj6lXw"]] to your entries, pages and templates. The external media will magically be included in your entries.
The bookmarklet will automatically try to recognize url's from sites that are oEmbed capable, and return the embed code.
PivotX with a MySQL database is recommended for faster cacheing of the media code, but it is not required.
