Description hellocatfood 2018-05-07 16:38:28 UTC
Steps to reproduce

1. Create a folder a call it "presentation_test"
2. Create an odp and save it in that folder
3. Find a video, place it in the folder and then drag it into the presentation
4. Save and then reopen the odp. The preview imgae of the video should appear
5. Rename the folder to "presentation test" (replace the underscore with a space)
6. Reopen the odp. The preview of the video won't appear (replaced with grey question mark) but will still play in the presentation.

I'm using Libre Office 6 on Ubuntu 18.04

One manifestation of the problem (not quoting paths): when I was testing another bug, it had a file 'billy elliot.mpeg'. When I inserted it to Impress, I got this in the terminal:

'No src-element named "elliot" - omitting link'
