h264, mp4 and MS Stream links all don't display properly. Is there another option so videos actually work or will I need to go rogue, ignore IT, risk my job and post on YouTube? I'm pretty sure YouTube isn't broken and displays properly in Teams. I guess I can probably do this with a couple months of hard work and React.js -- but really, seriously, how do I post a video in Teams? I have a whole curriculum to post and people need easy access to it.

EDIT: I ended up posting a super confusing, obfiscated mess that's unprofessional and embarressing. It took me all week to do and should have taken 2-3 hour and I ended up accomplishing nothing that I wanted. MS you make the worst visual communications tools on the market any it's seriously a problem.

    As you can read in the following article, currently it is not possible to embed a video directly into a team chat or channel. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/1159381/is-it-possible-to-embed-a-video-mp4-in-a-teams-cha#:~:text=Currently%20Embedding%20video%20to%20a%20chat%20or%20channel%20message%20is%20not%20possible.%20You%20can%20upvote%20the%20feature%20request%20created%20for%20the%20same%20and%20based%20on%20number%20of%20votes%20received%20and%20people%20requesting%20for%20similar%20feature%20Microsoft%20Engineering%20will%20take%20up%20for%20implementation.
    So if it is still possible to use MS Stream, I would recommend this way until the feature is released.
    Or you find another way with your IT department. If the reply was helpful, please don’t forget to upvote or accept it as an answer, thank you.

    WAIT How do I upload an image?? I used to be able to upload images and you could see the left half of the image in Team (I thought that was terrible), now everything is a grey download box and no images appear in-line.

    Ok making an image link out isn't possible either. Maybe the team who built the WYSIWYS editor were the old IE dev team.
