Movies can be imported into Impress, and play fine using both the Media Playback toolbar and Play Slideshow. But, on saving and then re-opening the presentation, the object is lost from the slide. Happens with both PPT and ODT formats. On closing the presentation again, Impress reports that "the document has been modified" and offers to save.

Not reproducible here. Did you move the presentation or the movies in the meantime?

I experienced this defect (I *believe* with OOo 2.0.0, but I no longer have that machine and cannot confirm, it was over a year ago) on Windows XP for the first time as I was doing a final A/V check for a keynote address at a software testing conference while the participants were being seated. Luckily, it was an opening keynote and the conference organizer’s announcements took long enough for me to re-import my video clips. I am able to reproduce this defect using OOo-dev 3.0 on Windows XP with .mpg, .wmv and .avi files, but only for .ppt formatted files, not .odp formatted files. How I reproduced this defect: Setup: Launch Impress, create new file with 3 slides, embed .mpg on slide 1, .wmv. on slide 2, .avi on slide 3, play slide show (all three movies play), save file (once as .odp, once as .ppt), close file, but not Impress. *Note* when saving in .ppt format, I did observe a message stating that “some formatting or content may not be compatible with the .ppt format.” (Screenshot attached “Format_Warning.jpg”). This may have been a work around implemented in OOo-dev 3.0. I didn’t pay any attention to the message at first because I’m used to similar messages appearing any time a file is saved in other than the native format. Steps: 1. re-open .odp (all three movies play), close .odp, re-open .ppt (no movies) 2. close Impress, re-launch impress, open .ppt (no movies), close .ppt, open .odp (all three movies play) 3. Reboot, re-launch impress, open .odp (all three movies play) close .odp, open .ppt (no movies) 4. launch PowerPoint, open .ppt (no movies)

I agree that this is a serious issue. At the very least the software needs to issue a warning that embedded video may not work in a ppt file viewed outside of oo; the generic warning about some formatting being lost isn't enough. I wasted hours on this, and from what I read on the forums others have also wasted hours on it. I am surprised there aren't more votes for this issue, but I'm new here and don't really understand the voting system. It took me quite some time to find the issue tracker and figure out the voting, and I suspect that stops a lot of users from casting votes. Thank you.
