Description juanfiguera 2009-10-15 21:21:07 UTC
Currently there is no way to edit or alter the links to embedded movie or sound

When using "Insert -> Movie and Sound", the result is a link which has a path
reference. This link can only be displayed by examining the content.xml file, a
typical entry is:
<draw:plugin xlink:href="../../videos/test.avi" xlink:type="simple"
xlink:show="embed" xlink:actuate="onLoad"

Moving the presentation document file or the sound/movie files themselves breaks
the links. This makes in practice the document file not portable even within the
same operating system. 

In particular the links do not appear under "Edit -> Links". A method within OO
should exist to modify and alter the links.

Same as Issue 99573: No option to change / edit / check the path of a media file
