I've tried to insert the following video file (divx) on a slide via "Insert>Movie and sound":
It doesn't work: the video space is shown as a gray square during the presentation.
However, if I load the same video file from my home dir (/home/dario/tiegccdemo.avi) it works like a charm.
The same happens if I load the video file from /home/dario/tmp/ (works) and /home/dario/tmpù/ (doesn't work).
I've found a similar bug, involving cyrillic letters, here:
output of locale please ?
i.e. is it a non-utf locale is what I'm wondering
oh, and is this gnome or kde or something else. It may be the file selector itself and that's per desktop
hmm, looking at the gstreamer specific code, I suspect its simply the mangling into US_ASCII.
Now fixed (I bet) by http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/libs-core/commit/?id=6b211c4735b3965429e82dc100ef0cd0db810fed
