Fluid Video Embeds

Make your "auto embedded" YouTube and Vimeo videos full width (100%) while maintaining their original aspect ratio

Why does the plugin only support YouTube and Vimeo?

I believe that these are the two most popular video platforms (for my current audience) and I coded them first because I am the most familiar with them. I am not opposed to adding video-provider X if their API allows me to.

Why do you need to make API calls?

You can't get the video dimensions (and thus aspect ratio) without doing some sloppy JavaScript (maybe) or making an API call. The only thing that makes this plugin special is that fact that it attempts to remove black bars from your video, thus necessitating API calls. The API requests are cached however, so it should only have a minimal impact.
