Hello, scribe is such a cool project, especially for folks that plan to 
leave medium.com and need to extract their previous work!

I noticed that in the scribe version of medium.com posts, captions below 
embedded videos are not showing up. These captions in many cases list 
credits for the thing they're captioning. For instance here is a medium 
page with an embedded video: 
https://immerse.news/q-a-hacking-vr-speaker-eloi-champagne-b293ef8177c3 
The caption says "Video produced by Beyza Boyacioglu of MIT’s Open Doc 
Lab" The corresponding scribe version doesn't have that caption: 
https://scribe.rip/q-a-hacking-vr-speaker-eloi-champagne-b293ef8177c3 
The corresponding <figure> tag doesn't seem to have a <figcaption>.

Would it be possible to support video embeds similarly to how it works 
with images?

Thanks again!
Dragan

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll look into this. No timeline for you but these are usually straightforward.
