Using flow to move large files from ODfB to SharePoint

I've had trouble getting a flow to move files larger than 100MB from OneDrive for Business to SharePoint.  I have a process that allows a video file submission via Microsoft Forms.  The video has to be stored in OneDrive per the Forms requirement.  I need to then move it to a SharePoint Team Site document library.  I use the OD Get File Content with Path to retrieve the file contents and then the Create file in SharePoint library to create it at the destination.  As far as I can tell, the file content is always null for files over 100MB.  


What's interesting is I can login to the OneDrive for Business web interface, select files larger than 100MB and move them to SharePoint using the 'Move' button without any issue.  It seems like that too would be using Flow logic but perhaps it isn't. 


Anyone had a similar issue or know how to automate these large files being moved to SharePoint?

Not sure if the reason is this one

Yeah, I'm aware of that limitation.  It just seems like the way this works through the ODfB web app is essentially the same as Flow.  It works there so why can't it work in Flow?  I've also seen other articles that say files over 100mb may have different results than desired indicating they *may* work.
