Embed Videos, Images, and Rich Media

Let's admit it, we love to share videos, images, and other rich media on our blogs. Today, blog posts are much more than a bunch of paragraphs and without such content they would be incomplete. Many rich media sites like YouTube, Vimeo, and Flickr provide HTML embed codes to share these content on the Web. But the question is, do you like to copy & paste some gibberish embed code and create an HTML mess? There must a better way to do this, right? Well, there is...

Guys over at Embed.ly have found a neat solution to this problem. In their own words, they have created...

One API To Rule them All

You just give them a URL and they give you the embed code. Sounds like a fair deal to me. So, instead of reinventing the wheel, we have decided to use Embed.ly API at Hoydaa Blogs. Now, you can embed videos, images, other and rich media from 169 different services by simply surrounding the URLs with angle brackets in Mardown format.

Say you want to embed a video from Vimeo,
