A simple web Transclusion protocol

oEmbed is a format for allowing an embedded representation of a URL on third party sites. The simple API allows a website to display embedded content (such as photos or videos) when a user posts a link to that resource, without having to parse the resource directly.

CardiganBay (engine behind this wiki) uses oEmbed to bring in data from other sites.
