We are giving Embed.ly a spin. For low level users the service by Embed.ly is free. It lets you redeploy content from 100s of content providers in useful ways, including all the usual suspects and a whole lot more.
For example, you can show off an album or set from Flickr.com, without having to copy and paste ugly code, which anyways we don’t allow unless you’re a paying member.
Give it a spin.
