What is oEmbed?

oEmbed is an open format that allows users to place the content from one web page to another.

OEmbed is practically a type of plugin, extension or module that allows a site to embed content from oEmbed providers.

The site that provides oEmbed formatted content becomes an oEmbed provider, which allows other sites that support oEmbed to display the oEmbed providers content.

An oEmbed exchange occurs between a consumer and a provider. A consumer wishes to show an embedded representation of a third-party resource on their own web sites, such as a photo or an embedded video. A provider implements the oEmbed API to allow consumers to fetch that representation.
