Description talktactics 2006-03-02 21:54:57 UTC
Hi. We have been using OO 1.1.5. very successfully to create documents with 
pictures and videos embedded. I have loaded OO 2.0.1 but can't get the 
document to actually embed the video file in the saved document so that we can 
email etc. I have tried 
1.  Insert/Movie and Sound
2.  Insert/Insert Object/Movie (which causes an error on saving), and 
3.  Drag and drop from a folder. 

They all appear to place the movie in the document, and it plays, but when you 
save the document (if you can - see 2 above) it is not embeded which means we 
can't email the document etc.  

The emailed document just has a placeholder and a question mark when you open 
it, and when you look at the size of the file it is obvious the movie data is 
not included (a 3.2Mb MPEG movie inserted gives a 68Kb file when saved)

I have quicktime installed on my machine.

I can confirm the described 2.0.1 behavior on Windows with an MPG and with both
.odt and .odp files.  Can someone else confirm the OOo 1.1.5 behavior, so we can
mark this as a regression?  Embedding video, especially in .odp, is very important.

MRU->WG: does this work as designed?
Comment 3 wolframgarten 2006-03-08 11:59:40 UTC
I have talked to the developer and he told me that the office is able to embed
pictures but not movies or videos and that it never was able to.
So I change this issue to enhancement and reassign it.
I would be very interested to see a 1.1.5 document with an embedded movie.

Comment 6 foxcole 2008-04-11 19:22:17 UTC
I do not agree that this should be an enhancement! 

A file should be embeddable in a document, because a document should be
distributable for use by anyone, under the OpenDocument standard. Styles are
embedded for this reason, as are pictures. What makes it unnecessary for movie
and sound files to follow the same design? 

Users expect to embed these files, and I expected mine to be embedded in 2.3.1
and then 2.4.0. when it was not, I checked the Links option in the Edit window,
and no links were listed. If the file is linked in, that should be indicated in
the Links dialog. 

No link, and no embedded file either. This is a bug.

I agree this is a problem especially in Impress
Comment 9 acotte 2009-01-09 16:57:38 UTC
If this issue is less important for Writer, it's very important for Impress.  We
often use video in presentation.

I have the same problem with sounds ?
Comment 11 jabx 2009-12-18 04:33:00 UTC
Same problem has Impress. When I have made presentation with OGG sound for each
page, and saved it, then move to new folder/pc - the sounds had lost. If move
folder with odp and with sounds in subfolder it works, but need to know how to
do it. And it not comfortable to use. 
Comment 12 fmartagong 2010-05-13 00:18:37 UTC
It is also necessary to Impress
Comment 13 schtoferi 2010-11-10 09:58:33 UTC
for impress a must (as option when saving the file or when inserting the file)

I am experiencing difficulty with transcription process when I try to transfer a video clip into a word document. The video clip in question is 152MB, or 27 minutes in length. Is there a size limitation for doing such activity? Thank you.
