i have a flow that automatically creates a sharing link for every file that is added to a sharepoint library. however, for video links that are uploaded/added to the sharepoint library, the sharing link first opens on a "error" message: Hmm looks like this file doesn't have a preview we can show you. there's an OPEN button on that error page that when clicked will lead to the video and play without problems. But my users will think that something is wrong because of the "this file doesn't have a preview we can show you" page. what do i need to do with regards to the sharing link (do i need to change something in the flow, perhaps?), so that when clicked it opens the video without the "error" message page? screenshot of error message below. Thanks in advance. apologies if this was supposed to be posted/asked on the power automate message board, but as the "error" shows up in sharepoint, i figured this was the place to start.

I am also having this issue with embedding a video (content type) from a document library to a SharePoint page.

@Olivia Dudley you would be much better uploading your videos to Microsoft Stream, another of the Office 365 apps, and then displayng them on your SharePoint page with the Stream webpart. Stream is optimsed for videos which SharePoint isn't.

@Susan Hanley Hi Susan! Just to clarify, managing multiple videos by saving them to SharePoint since our company emphasizes cloud-storage only. I am only trying to embed one of the many videos already stored in a document library with video content types.
Videos stored in their current location, as is, can be embeded on a SharePoint page with the ability to change thumbnail, auto-start, loop, etc.
Copying the embed code provided returns an error. Video content types are not behaving as they were before, nor as expected.
