The Embedly Plugin extends WordPress's auto embed feature to give your blog more media types, video analytics, recommendation, and style options.
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:
