Description tschlechter 2006-02-08 07:54:30 UTC
When inserting a video on a slide it can be played exactly once, directly after
insertion. When changing slides, controls for the video object are greyed out,
thus, disabled. When moving around, or changing size of the video object, I get
back controls! (This behavior is filed in issue 48997 for Windows XP, OOo 2.0.1
and 680m155 are concerned).

In OOo 2.0.1, using widget set "gtk", the video window is not embedded in the
slide. But if I can manage to get the window into forground, I can see the video
playing. (This behavior is filed in issue 59255 and resolved for 680m155).

In OOo 2.0.1, I can play a video only once, directly after it has been inserted.
Even if I get back controls by moving it around, there is only a black window
but no movie. In 680m155, I cannot see the video even once.
In neither version, playing back a video file works in presentation mode. In
full screen, there is always just a black window.

Playing back the same video file with the media player (under tools) is working

I guess, there is a mix-up with the X-window-IDs or by the ordering of the
X-windows. Maybe the media player is sending its output to the lower window,
maybe the controls are "attached" to the lower window, maybe the ordering of the
windows is not deterministic...

Sorry, not reproducible. Which window manager do you use? Can you attach a video
file that you are using or send it directly to my email? Thanks in advance.

For all people you might experience the same thing: Make sure your video-file is
_really_ supported by JMF. 

Some formats that are not officially supported might work "half".
