A presentation software like Impress should support common videoformats like MP4 / H264 with a standard installation. (It's the main dealbreaker for me personally.)

Steps to Reproduce:
Importing common video formats results in nonfunctional replay. Other Codecs have to be separately installed to OS. This is extremely inconvenient, since you can never be sure, that the presentation machine will play the video natively

Actual Results:
Videos don't play. Or show distorted and unreliable. Performance is uncertain.

Expected Results:
Video is playing with default installation (with the most common video formats)

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Video formats ideally should be resizable - optionally play on click ...

Thank you for the report.
We already have reports for:
- Bug 62408 - MP4 videos aren't handled in Windows (without additional codecs)
- Bug 142117 - Impress - MP4 H264 video not working

Your report is likely a duplicate of one of those, but without information like your OS and version, it's hard to say.

Please provide the full version info copied from Help > About LibreOffice (or on macOS LibreOffice > About).

Yes, I am running on a windows 10 system.

Please prioritize this - having such a low performance to present with videos is really a major drawback.

Thank you.
Let's mark as duplicate of bug 62408 then. (Bugs with more duplicates do tend to get more attention.)
