The Embed API follows the oEmbed Spec and is the easiest endpoint to integrate into any site. It returns the title, description, thumbnail, and embed code for any URL. If you are automating embedding URLs, then this endpoint is for you. Embedly already does the work of picking the correct information for you and your users.
