Description zurvan 2005-08-18 21:37:49 UTC
If there is a very large avi (1.8gig's), the avi will not play unless the
slideshow is started on the slide that has the embedded avi.  The should be
scaled to a size ratio that is somewhat smaller then the orginal resolution. 
Have not been able to test this with smaller avi's.
Comment 1 sworkhard 2005-08-19 01:06:42 UTC
What format is the avi encoded in (divx, xvid, uncompressed?)

1.8gig ?!?!
 Sorry, I do not have such a large piece here. Since attaching a bugdoc will not
work here - where can I download it? I am not able to reproduce this here.

Ok, I will put it up on my webserver later this weekend.
Comment 5 zurvan 2005-08-23 22:49:33 UTC
I am sorry, but I do not have enought space on my server to host the file, is
there some other way that you can create the file?

OOo 1.9.125
Laptop - XP Pro Sp2, Pentium 4 3.00GHz, 512MB Ram, ATI Mobility Radeon 9700
Desktop - XP Pro Sp2, Pentium 4 3.20GHz, 1.00GB Ram, Radeon 9800 Pro

Although I can’t specifically confirm or deny this, (no avis over 700 megs) I 
did find that if you have multiple avis on a single slide, and then start the 
slideshow on a slide with no movies, the first movie that attempts to play 
will lose picture after the last movie begins playing.  There is still sound 
from the first movie, but no picture on this one.  This can be tested with 
very small movie files.

1.	Open Impress
2.	Insert 2 movies
3.	Create blank slide
4.	Start slideshow from blank slide
5.	Navigate to movies

When I do this, both movies play, but whichever one gets picture first, 
immediately loses it after the last movie begins playing, while sound can 
still be heard.

If however the blank slide contains a movie (any movie), when navigating to 
the slide with multiple movies, all of them will play correctly.

I don’t know whether this is related to the above problem or not, but they 
sound very similar.

Yes, that sounds exactly like what happens with a very large avi.  It sounds
like that there is a limit to the total number of avi's based on the total file
size, but that is just a guess.

My specs are as follows:
- OO 2.0 Beta
- Dell Dimension XPS PC
- Windows XP Professional SP2
- Pentium 4 3.8 GHz Processor
- 2.0 GB DDR RAM

Unfortunately I don't have any large AVI files to play.  I did however run a 
couple smaller ones and experienced abnormal behavior where the first would 
start playing, then disappear, but I could still hear the sound while the 
second one played.

The steps I followed:
- Create a new Impress presentation
- Load more than one AVI movie
- Start the slideshow from a blank slide
- Navigate to the slide containing multiple movies

Many users these days run embedded multimedia files from various applications, 
all the time.  I would consider this an important issue.

Reproducible. I have a 2 slide presentation. On the second slide there are two
avis. Starting the presentation shows the first avi with the sound of the
second. The visible presentation changes from run to run - sometimes one,
sometimes the other.

I do not think that this happens only for very latge avis - I tried to embed
several short mpegs and avis into a presentation. Same thing: if one starts
witha slide which contains a movie, all movies will be displayed properly. If
one starts with a text-only slide, only the first few frames of the movie flash
up, then the movie disappears.

For a workaround, I set the first slide to contain a movie, then switch to the
"real" first slide (actually slide no.2), and everything goes smooth.

Confirmed issue, fix in progress. Indeed, does not in any way relate to the size
of the avi.
Comment 12 thb 2006-12-13 17:57:19 UTC
Fixed in CWS thbpp6. Reason: the SystemChildWindow containing the video window
repainted its background in black every so often, thus clobbering the video content.

Comment 14 thb 2007-01-09 10:31:27 UTC
@wg: fixed in CWS thbpp6, please verify. Same stuff as the customer thing, you
can reuse the bugdoc from that. This fix is for the 2.2 code line.
Comment 15 wolframgarten 2007-01-11 13:33:51 UTC
Verified in CWS.
Comment 16 wolframgarten 2007-01-26 14:52:01 UTC
Tested in m201. Closed.

I have a very similar same problem running Ubuntu Hardy Beta and Openoffice 2.4
RC2, though I only have one video in my presentation (a small, ~3MB ogg theora
converted from an FLV, though the problem also appears with an mpeg). When I
start on a slide with embedded video, it always works. When I don't, it's very
hit or miss, mostly miss (and I have to somehow refresh the screen, by changing
the brightness or something like that).
