Description Gašper Sedej 2019-05-21 12:02:02 UTC
If you insert video in Impress slideshow and the video is bigger than slide or is partially out of slide, the libreoffice UI or "slideshow" breaks. See the video [1]

This bug is related to "libreoffice-gtk3" and "gstreamer1.0-gtk3". The bug does not accrue if using "libreoffice-gtk2" or none (the default LibreOffice VCL). Tested on Ubuntu 19.04. Enabled -purposed and upgraded libreoffice to "6.1.6"

Embeded video does play correctly IF the video is fully inside the slide.

If the video is a bit outside the slide or video is bigger than slide, when pressing "play" button in right pane, libreoffice UI totally breaks.
Only the ~1/8 of window display content other space is white. If resizing the window, the content gets even smaller.
Also when running the slideshow, it's broken.
I need to close impress and run it again.

The bug was initially reported Ubuntu's libreoffice bug-tracker

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Impress
2. Insert video into slide
3. move video a outside outside the slide
4. click "play" button in side panel OR start presentation

Actual Results:
if in slide creation mode, impress UI breaks
if in present mode: playback and slide is corrupted

Expected Results:
Video should be played as expected

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
I was asked by ubuntu's LO mantainers to report bug to upstream.

Thanks for reporting this issue.
Most likely this is a duplicate of bug 124694. It has been already fixed in GTK2 and GTK3 under wayland. it needs to be fixed for under X
