When inserting an audio or video file in a slide, we have the possibility to choose between linking or embedding the file. There is a checkbox in the filepicker for that.
It would be very interesting and consistent with the above functionality to have the same possibility when choosing a sound file for a transition : task panel > transitions > sound : other sound -> filepicker.
Best regards. JBF
I see what it is what you want. Seems like a good request to me.

This should be quite easy to do as you can copy the code from other Dialogs that offer this function.
Here's the actual dialog code: http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sd/source/ui/animations/CustomAnimationDialog.cxx#1735
Here you can see how the Impress/Draw dialog "Insert Movie and Sound" adds the "Link" option: http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/avmedia/source/viewer/mediawindow.cxx#244
And here's how media is embedded in the document structure: http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sd/source/ui/view/sdview4.cxx#278
I agree that this is a very desirable feature, particularly because using a sound file for transition is the only way you can place a sound-track in a presentation so that it will run throughout the whole presentation. For example, I created a presentation for which the whole purpose was to display the words of a song, with saved timings so the slides would change at the right points in the song, but when I copied the presentation to the computer it is to be shown on - no song!
On v. 4.1.0 release, I can get the sound to play and advance the slide automatically correctly. However, the second slide has a different sound which doesn't always play and the auto advance timer doesn't automatically advance the slide.
This is easily replicated by:
1. setting a transition such as fade to black
2. inserting own personal sound as an mp3 (i recorded my voice)
3. set the timer to advance the slide automatically to say 10 sec.
4. for the next slide, use the same trnsition, for example, fade to black
5. Use a different sound file in mp3 format
6. set the slide advance to 13 seconds (just so its different from the first slide)
The problem appears to be consistent on my windows machine regardless of JRE used. I have the latest Oracle JRE. Also tried it with an earllier Sun JRE and got the same result. I ran this on a Windows 7 laptop.
Marking as Duplicate.
