Description aziem 2006-10-23 01:56:20 UTC
To reproduce:
1. Create blank presentation in Impress
2. Turn off any HTTP proxies in Java and OOo
3. Turn on the built-in OOo dialogs
4. Insert->Movie and Sound
5. Use the link (>1MB)

- becomes unresponsive as it loads the .avi
- In some cases, all X11 programs can stop responding while the .avi is loading.
- The .avi seems to reload every time the slide is loaded, so flipping between
slides is slow.
- The video is linked, but it does not show in Edit->Links.
- It is not possible to break the link (to embed the video).

Expected results:
- OOo opens the video no more than once until the presentation is closed.
- It is possible to embed the video.

Comment 3 wolframgarten 2006-11-14 10:30:14 UTC

slow performance is visible though.
