video issues in Impress


I've had an issue using video clips in Impress for a long time. I'm
currently suffering the embarrassment of having to ask someone to
prepare a PP presentation rather me doing it in Impress because of this.....

Basically, I need a slide that, when it's displayed, immediately shows a
video clip (of some minutes), and at the end of the clip transitions to
a blank screen until the next slide is requested.

/Always/ I have glitches at the start and end of the video. The current
attempt shows a full-screen "?" for a fraction of a second before the
video starts (in previous LO versions, it's shown a random frame from
near the start of the clip). I would dearly love just to have frame 1 of
the video appear, and for the last frame to remain when done, without
extraneous "stuff" inserted.


This looks to be the same issue as bug 69461, which dates back to 2013
without a fix!! Also 112958 looks probably related, albeit appearing on
windows, but commenting on the use of a placeholder video frame.

For me, it's a complete show-stopper, and obviously a number of people
are having this problem but manage to somehow put up with it. I'm
surprised it's not received attention yet.

Any thoughts on this please? Does a majority not suffer from it? (And if
so, what's the difference in setup/usage?) Does anyone have a
workaround? (I can't find one)


(I'm currently using LO 5.4.2.2 on Mint 18.1; but I'm almost sure this
happened in days of yore under windows XP)

Thanks.

Re: video issues in Impress

hello.
if you can steps to reproduce the bug, you can report it in bugzilla
or participate in previous reported bugs that you mentioned.
since which version of libreoffice do you have this problem exactly?
in 5.3.6 and 5.3.7 i read some bug fixed in impress.
i wish that your issue be resolved.
God bless you!

Thank you for your comment.

There seems little point in reporting on Bugzilla yet again something
that has been raised multiple times in the past 4 or 5 years.

As I'm running 5.4.2.2, I would hope that fixes for 5.3.x would be
included anyway.

As do I. Does no-one else on the list use video within Impress at all?
Do people not generally have this problem? Or do they just put up with it?

He does.
