Anyone who could help me out with sanity/mux? I’m new to sanity and mux, and I want to be able to upload videos in sanity using mux, this integration for studio was easy. However, when I’m trying to fetch the video for web, I get this:

video: { asset: { _ref: '6c100819-3c4b-4c80-9077-3219a7ccb35e' } }
The ref is the same as the videos passthrough property. I dont get any other data on the asset (preferably I want the id).
In my schema I’ve added it like this (to a post consisting of some additional fields such as text, images etc.):

  name: 'video',
  type: '',
And my query is currently super simple:

groq`*[_type == "post"]`

field is presumably a reference to an asset, and not an asset by itself, so it has to be dereferenced/expanded in the query

Thanks, yes I looked through that. However, I don’t understand how I can use that reference to get the videos Id. I have tried following the tutorial of sanity + mux with the request posted there, however the response is still the same:

video: { asset: { _ref: '6c100819-3c4b-4c80-9077-3219a7ccb35e' } }
