You must be wondering what oEmbed is that we are using for a long time as if it is a typing mistake. You all know that when you share a media file or something from an external source to your post, you call in embedding. It is a sort of Windows that give you access to the external data without visiting that external website apparently. oEmbed is the latest format of embedding. Generally, you would copy the code for embedding from the external site and paste it in your post to show it. For example, to embed a YouTube video, you have to get the embedding code from the YouTube video and paste in in your post.
