And, because Linux offers so many ways to skin a cat,
using bash as your shell, and in the directory containing the file:

  $ command this<TAB>

and your command line will be filled: $ command this\ is\ my\ mp4.mp4

Actually, you may be able to view the video using a browser that has
file:// support.  I've never tried this, but Chrome "does" mp4
internally, I believe.  Elsewise maybe Firefox, Brave, Opera, Vivaldi,
or Palemoon .....
