I don't know what options are available now. There is an open feature 
request for this at the Embedly support site 
[ http://support.embed.ly/entries/20117823-enable-youtube-parameters-in-wp-plugin 
], I think you should follow that to get the news.

Also, unless I misunderstand the oEmbed code in WordPress [ 
], I believe only the url, width and height arguments are sent to the oEmbed 
provider. So a shortcode like [embed 
controls=0]http://example.com/some-item[/embed] would not send the 
"controls" argument.
