If you upload a video, but don't explicitly insert it into the post like here:

You get an video icon:


If you tap/click on that... you get sent to the attachment url:

In Chrome, it plays.
In Safari (iOS 13 and macOS 10.15), it shows a broken icon:

Direct link to the file itself works in Safari:

edit: and for some reason this thumbnail image is appearing both as an insert and in the attachment list.

Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XF release (2.2.0 Beta 3).

Change log:
Ensure audio/video attachments which are not embedded are linked to the correct URL.
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.
