writer file with embedded movie exported to pdf
In my lesson's slides I sometimes embed videos. I don't give the original to the students but only the pdf. In the pdf the videos won't play, but looking at the file size or its content they are still inside it.
I think that or we find a way to play the videos inside the exported pdf or the pdf export should remove the video, maybe sobstituing it with an image taken from he video itself.
Leaving the video inside the pdf, without the ability to play, creates useless huge files.
Maybe it can be an option in the "export to pdf" window.
The attached file is created in writer, just inserting a viedoclip, and the pdf is 3586kb. Opening withh a text editor you can see
and other data showing that the moovie is there, but it won't play.
I can play the videoTest.pdf with
Okular Version 0.20.3
Thank you for reporting this suggestion.
I am marking this as an enhancement.
Great to know that Okular works!
Still the ability to skip the videos (as we can compress the images) could be an interesting option to make light ouput.
Thank you all!

Let's ask UX
Never got the point of videos in Writer but Impress make sense. And on export we could of course add an option "[x] Export video in full length", perhaps under Images otherwise another frame "Video" below, with the tooltip "Switch off to only export the first still image of the video".
