# returns the following dictionary:
{
    'author_name': 'pascalbrax',
    'author_url': u'http://www.youtube.com/user/pascalbrax'
    'height': 344,
    'html': u'<iframe width="459" height="344" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/54XHDUOHuzU?fs=1&feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>',
