It used to be possible to adjust video viewing size in Impress, but since version 5 it's not anymore. The "View" dropdown is disabled, resizing the video on the slide has no effect. Tried various types of videos - same issue. Embedding or linking isn't changing anything either.
Thank you for reporting the bug. Unfortunately without clear steps to reproduce it, we cannot track down the origin of the problem.
Please provide a clearer set of step-by-step instructions on how to reproduce the problem.
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' once the steps are provided
Steps: go to Tools > Media Player, open video file in Media Player. Video plays fine, but "View" dropdown is not available to change the viewing size.
I confirm, but not on Windows.

Do you remember in which version it worked for you ?
It stopped working since version 5; still not working in Version: 18.104.22.168.
Changing back to the earliest affected version
I installed Ubuntu 12.04 in a VM. I tested the bug with the LibreOffice version shipped with it, 3.5.7. It seems this has never worked on Linux.
Kara: if you disagree, you have to prove it by installing an older version and testing with it.
I am absolutely positive it has worked before, albeit I wouldn't be too sure in which 4er version exactly. I am using Impress professionally, and the media player was used in my presentations (I now have a workaround), and my OS is Ubuntu since ages ago. But I won't be installing virtual environments and testing old versions to pinpoint where exactly it stopped working. It would be nice if it worked in the latest version on Linux. My reporting pertained to this not being the case, which seems by now confirmed. I rest my case.

Well, then you could install some not-so-ancient version on your system. As you said the problem appeared in version 5, you could try 4.4, which should work with your system packages (hopefully): https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel/Linux
I installed the old Ubuntu VM, because I didn't want to start messing with duplicate gstreamer packages..

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
I do not understand the bug.
Or it has been resolved in the mean time
(testing is 63-master on Linux 64 bits)
I can insert a video; resize with dragging by the mouse, or dialog Position and Size.
And with playing the presentation, the video has the size that I gave it.
Can you please explain what I miss?
thanks - Cor

Screenshot of working dropdown in Windows
Cor: on Linux, are you able to use the dropdown as seen in the screenshot?

That definitely is not a problem for me.
