Embedly

Description

Enhance the default WordPress embedding to get previews for any article,
including your own blog posts. You also get embeds for Gfycat, Twitch, Google
Maps, and Embedly’s growing list of 300+ supported
providers
.

You can customize the style of the embeds, to optimize for darker WP themes,
alignment, and width. In addition, social buttons can be added around the embeds
to make it easier to share content from your blog posts.

For most music and video players embeds (YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, SoundCloud)
you can receive analytics on viewer behaviors. See which videos are being
watched and for how long.

Using it is as simple as the default WordPress embedding. Embed media by pasting its URL in a single line when writing a post:

This Embedly lets me embed everything great on the web!

The plugin automatically displays an embed of the media in the WordPress post
editor (for WP 4.0+).

Fair Warning: This plugin generates static HTML content for your posts. After you deactivate
the plugin, that HTML will still remain behind in all posts where the plugin was used to create
embeds.

Reviews

Awful Customer Service

I was really excited to find and use this plugin. The first time I sent a message to CS I received no reply. When I emailed again I was told, "There's no record of your email." Okay. Stuff happens... I then had another issue and was mid-thread and the embed.ly CS team simply stopped responding. I've followed up with additional messages but no reply. My suggestion? AVOID THIS PLUGIN!
