This would be fantastic.  MNGs are so much smaller than comparable GIFs, as well
as being an open format.

    I see this is a fairly old thread, but I want to voice my support for MNG
graphics in Impress.  

    I give scientific presentations frequently, and videos are an important part
of these talks.  Unfortunately, I have never been able to get JMF to work
properly, and I am often presenting on platforms where the JMF routines (if
working) would still be very limited, such as on PowerPC Mac OS X.  I have used
animated GIFs, which tend to be quite large, as well as hyperlinks to movie
files to start an external player, but I really find both of these methods
cumbersome to use.

    I feel that the ability to use MNG graphics would be a great help to me.
