How to embed audio/video files


Our instructor already have sets of audio/video files inside Files ( Canvas)

What is best way to embed them so there will be players for users to click on?

I saw some school using a app under the app tab. Do you which one is free ?

Hi  @qtnguyen ~ It's been about two months since we last heard from you. Did the response from  @garth  resolve your issue?

I have the same question. I already have the video I want to embed in the course Files. I don't want to just click on the file while I'm in the content editor because then it won't embed it playable. I also think I shouldn't have to upload the file again from my computer since I already have it in Files. How to I embed a video from Files?
