oEmbed API Wrapper for .Net

oEmbed  is an open format standard for using REST to import content (such as videos, widgets, and images) from one website to another, avoiding XSS issues, and without having to parse the resource website. This wrapper allows you to simply make function calls in your own code to return the content that you desire. This is already a common feature in many blog engines and CMS's, such as WordPress. This wrapper brings this functionality to all .Net applications now.

You can only use this wrapper to import content from websites that have an oEmbed implementation (referred to as providers). Below is a list of the known providers, which also have a concrete implementation in this wrapper.
