You are right: QFIP does not execute shortcodes. Which shortcode do you mean?
And, yes, QFIP does not render oEmbed data which are placed as meta data in the HTML document. It looks for oEmbed URLs in the post content.
To use the option for external images please use the image URL in an IMG element. QFIP will recognize that URL in the IMG element and will do the task.
