The module takes care of the rest (getting the right embed code). Very simple and useful for editors.

public virtual oEmbedBlock EmbedBlock { get; set; }

And in your view:

That's it! Build and run your site. You'll now be able to embed any content from the supported 300 providers.

Visit the projects GitHub repository for source code, issue list and more information.
