I have odp presentations that contain movie files, inserted via 'insert --> movie and sound'. When I export these presentations to pdf, the resulting pdf file does not show the movie. Instead only the placeholder icon appears. This happens both for movie files that are only linked to from the odp (as was standard in pre-3.5 LO), and for movies that are actually embedded in the odp file.
Thanks for bugreport
May be used version of PDF (produced by Impress) not allow this. Please, verify.
My version of impress (3.5.0) creates pdf 1.4 files. In this version, linked movies are definitely allowed. For the embedded movies I'd have to check, but I am pretty sure they are allowed too.
Thanks for additional testing
It seems that embedded movies are allowed in pdf 1.5 and higher.
Please when will this be implemented? I really would like to share my presentation with embedded videos as PDF. Also, I've heard that the latest pdf v1.9 version seems to allow for a better support of embedded videos.
Any up there ?
Since LO has very bad interoperability with PowerPoint (I don't blame developers, but we all are aware that PP is world wide used for presentations instead of LO). So this feature is a must have to be able to use LO for presentation (in my lab for example).
So some good news for this feature will be really awesome !
This has been implemented in LO 5.4, see
