Embed file in page

I would like to create an iframe in a page containing the view of a PDF in Files. I know that I can create a link and Canvas creates a preview button next to the link, but I would like the preview to be permanent.

 

I can hack this myself by lurking in the code of a file preview and then copy the box.com URL for the file-preview and then in HTML code create an iframe displaying that file. But this is tricky explaining to my colleges... So, my question:

 

Is there an app that can create an iframe in a page with the box.com URL for a file in Files?

Will the box.com URL change of I override the original file i Files?

Alternatively, can you link directly (not download!) to a file i Files (making the two questions above obsolete)?
