Simple Instagram Embed

Paste any link to a Instagram picture or video in your post and the plugin replace your Instagram link with the Instagram Embed directly in your posts

Why use this plugin when WordPress now have built in support for Instagram embed

It is correct that WordPress now have built in support for the Instagram embed. What you don't have is control over the site of the embed and if the image/video caption should be included or not. You can control both of these aspects with this plugin in the settings page.

Image/video is not showing

You can only embed images/videos from public profiles. Images from private profiles will not display. So make sure the image you are trying to embed belongs to a user with a public profile.

I don't want likes and/or comments to be displayed

Unfortunately Instagram does not provide any option to hide likes and comments from the embed.

I want the link in the embed to open in a new tab/window

Yeah, so would I. Sadly, this is a behavior I can not control and it is up to Instagram to change this. Imo you should always open external links in new tabs, so I don't understand why Instagram have choose not to with there embed.
