  3. The "Manage apps" screen opens, here click on the “Upload“ button. Browse the downloaded VML Player SharePoint app named "vml-player-share-point-web-part.sppkg"
  4. Review the info in the “Enable app“ panel. Enable this app and add it to all sites. Currently The "Teams" option isn’t supported by the application. Tick off the "Add to Teams" option.
