Sample slide (PPTX) with video

Here we have a slide with a video playing (in an infinite loop) in the
background and some elements in the forefront.

Impress does not show these elements while the video plays nor after,
though it does show them in edit mode.

Version: / LibreOffice Community

(Similarly for 6.4 - 7.3 I tested.)

Confirmed using LO (28daee8a3252e03a67484dc8d3dd26fd73af4826) / Ubuntu.
In earlier versions, eg. 4.x the video doesn't even play, probably due to some codec or multimedia lib issue. We can probably assume this was never okay.

Alternate, more complex, sample document (PPTX)

I wonder whether / believe that this, somewhat more complex, sample
document with two slides including a background video is about the
same issue - if possibly from a slightly different angle.
