To begin with - IMO this functionality should be a part of the base package so it's wonderful that the author seen this need and created a splendid solution.

This plugin is highly configurable (you can tweak parameters of rich embeds if you wish, not only pick between "big" or "small" embed which is a considerable asset for me) and makes using the community easier for lazier users. Let's be honest, most people won't "waste" time to make links they paste look more attractive - they just paste them and are done. With this installed instead of unsightly long link we get a nice snippet in the post. 

Since I've started using this plugin we had one problem that prevented links from being converted - the users started to PM me about that (so the feature is noticed and liked). The author reacted quickly and solved the issue promptly - that's a huge plus.

To sum it up - money well spent, makes the community attractive, users like it.

This works fantastically and makes a great difference to the look and feel of the community experience when there are a lot of external links such as ours.

Wanted this for a very long time and found it because of the black friday promotion.

Very good job and thanks for this app.
