RFE: Ability to add audio/video review comments, or insert audio/video/image in comments.

One of my friend who is taking Creative Writing class for school kids, was suggesting he wish there was simple way to add audio/video to review comments in documents created by the kids. Right now the way he is achieving this is by creating a "unlisted video" in youtube and putting its link in the comments box. That works for him. But if I work in a company, there will be company policy that will restrict me putting confidential information outside the company. Hence that way wont be possible for those who want to use this feature in a work place.


Steps:-
1. User receives a Write Document
2. Opens document
3. Review document
4. Decide a location in document for commenting
5. Select it with mouse
6. From menu "Insert > Comment"
7. In comment box click the microphone/camera icon
8. record audio/video comment

8. select audio/video/image comment from disk

PS:
My friend was commenting MS-Word documents. But I wish new features comes in libreoffice before other applications.

For me it seems to be a very interesting feature.

Reproducible with LO 4.1.4.2 (Win7 Home, 64bit)

Regina, while working on bug 129855, I just detected this enhancement request. So I would like to ask you, if it is possible to add images or videos to a comment in odf-format.

A comment is an <office:annotation> element. That has <text:p> and <text:list> child elements. Video, audio or image would require a <draw:frame> element. That is allowed inside a <text:p> element. So from ODF point of view, there is no problem for video, audio or image in an comment.

But the edit engine of LibreOffice is not able to handle that. Besides that I cannot imagine to have video directly inside a comment.

You can already include links into comments. While you are editing the comment text, press Ctrl+K to open the hyperlink dialog. Do not forget to set a short text in the "Text" field, otherwise the URL is used and that would be far to long for the width of comments.

Such link need not be a web link, you can link to a document or other file too. It will be opened in the default application.
