Embed audio/video files linked directly from the filesystem

Use Case

Linking to video or audio files should embedded a player when viewing in preview mode. Example, I have this note that uses the embed link pointing to a local video file in vault:

**Every Hour Should Have a Job If You’re Going to be Serious About Habits**

![[2021-02-14 - Focused 118 Every Hour Should Have a Job.mov]]

Proposed Solution

When in preview mode Obsidian should show an embed player for video or audio files.


Instead it shows a block with the file name that when click open the file with the default app:
