There is a difference between a link and an embedded object.

Presently we have `[…](…)` for links and `![…](…)` for embedded
objects (limited to images).

I therefor not only think it would be more appropriate to use the `![…]
(…)` syntax for embedding video/audio, but by using the `[…](…)`
syntax with auto-detection, you make it impossible for users to link
to the resource (rather than embed it).
