Comment 1 A (Andy) 2013-02-16 19:47:52 UTC
reproducible with LO 4.0.0.3 (Win7 Home, 64bit)

Reproduced with the following steps:
1. Inserted an avi file into an Impress presentation
2. Saved as odp, ppt and pptx file
3. Opened with LO, MS Office 2007

Result: 
With the odp file everything is fine and after reopening it with LO it plays the avi file correct.
But when saved as ppt or pptx, then the avi file got lost.  When opening the files with MS Office, then there is also no avi file.

This error still occurs in current master(version 4.2).

I can reproduce as described by you, but in Linux.

Well on OSX 10.9.4 LO 4.3.0.4 it seems avi files do not play at all.

Win8.1 LO 4.3.0.3 in a VM does not allow importing an avi file at all "not supported" says LO.

Hmm. Since this is in such a bad state, raising importance to "high". Would be great to support avi on OSX and windows.

Attaching the avi file I've used to test this.

Tested a wide range of video formats on Windows 7 and none of them worked, saying the format wasnt supported. It would be nice to know what setup the reporter and Andy have that permitted them to add the avi video file.

I did extensive linux testing in bug 79468 and alex did extensive testing in bug 79546 and alot of discussion of the issue happened in bug 56847.

Still repro the disappearance.

Let's put severity to major due to this being data loss. Avi is not found in the pptx container.

I could add the .avi just fine.
