+=== History ===
+
+The original version of EmbedVideo was created by Jim R. Wilson. That version
+was later forked by Mohammed Derakhshani as the EmbedVideoPlus extension. In
+early 2010 Andrew Whitworth took over active maintenance of both extensions
+and merged them together as "EmbedVideo".
+
+The newer versions of EmbedVideo are intended to be fully backwards-compatible
+with both older EmbedVideo and EmbedVideoPlus extensions.
