XF 2.1 Uploaded video in post is thumbnail rather than video


Added mp4 to allowed uploadable extensions, but the video file shows as a thumbnail rather than a playable video.

To play the video you have to click the thumbnail, which opens in a new window.

How do I get the uploaded video to play inside the post rather than opening in a new window?

Videos (and audio in 2.2) only play embedded in the page if you embed them within the post. Otherwise, they behave roughly as other non-image attachments (open in a new tab).
