I was just curious if there was a term? Is this a onebox? It seems like we have to explain it when there should be a term.

Like this:

I believe this is simply called embedded content.

  • That's exactly what it's called. In fact, Google uses that exact term on YouTube as one of the share options. – DA01 Mar 28 '13 at 20:29
  • thx,makes sense. we are using some ruby code called onebox which is why I hear that sometimes. – timpone Mar 29 '13 at 3:10

If you're looking for technical term, that's called an iFrame. They allow you to make requests and display content from content external to your website.

  • Written as iframe, as iFrame is a video format by Apple. – DMan Mar 29 '13 at 0:03
  • It's not always an iframe though. It's usually an embedded object of some sort. – Axel Mar 29 '13 at 18:45
