Description Richard 2020-09-24 13:47:37 UTC
If one has two *different* videos with the same basename but in different directories, for example:


Then embedding ~/test1/blah.mkv displays correctly, however in the same slideshow, if one tries to embed the other video ~/test2/blah.mkv, it will just show a clone of test1/blah.mkv. This works whether it is in the same slide, or a different slide in the same slideshow. All subsequent videos with the same basename will display as clones of the first video of that basename.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Embed a video ~/test1/blah.mkv
2. Embed a different video ~/test2/blah.mkv
3. Voila the second video shows up as a clone of the first video

Actual Results:
The second video shows up as a clone of the first video

Expected Results:
It should show the correct content for the two different videos.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
I tried disabling openGL (hardware acceleration in options->libreoffice->view) and the same result.

I tried with both .mkv and .mp4 containers, same result.
