Mockup of playback controls in LO (default player in firefox)
The idea to embed or link to a video or audio on a slide, is that it can be viewed dynamically within the slideshow.
Fedora 18 32 bit LO 188.8.131.52 and LO 184.108.40.206
Windows 7 pro; LO 220.127.116.11
Description of the problem:
now when you embed or link a video in LibreOffice Impress and starts the slide show, the video starts automatically and to perform the click stops and goes to the next slide.
This has many drawbacks and summarized that not control video playback:
→ Just the video starts, if you do a little introduction this should be done with a great title in a previous slide.
→ There is no way to pause the video (in long videos are delimited topics that can be discussed with the audience)
→ Can not forward / rewind the video. Again in long videos by "X" reasons parties must go back to see them again (or advance). (now you have to cross your fingers and hope everything turns out well)
1. Create a presentation with LibreOffice Impress
2. Embed or link to a video on one of your slides
3. Start the slide show and advance slides up to the video
The video starts playing automatically (and full volume). By clicking on the video stops and goes to the next slide.
Controlling video playback via a playback control (play / pause, progress bar, volume and full screen)
I think the grace of a presentation is that it can be dynamic in itself. Currently in my classes I use external player or web pages with videos (like youtube) which leads me to close the slide and open the player with the video (look if it hides an elf).
The ides of full screen button I add it because it would be very useful, the video could be embedded in an area of the slide (like a picture) and then could be expanded and played in full screen.
* I read that mentioned a way to play / pause the video through an animation effect. Honestly I could not find the option and find it a very unintuitive.

Hi Bastian, again, this is great input - would you also propose this to the UX discussion list?
I would agree, that this would be a good enhancement (I have therefore marked it as enhancement).
This is still relevant for 18.104.22.168
I agree that a nice, GUI would be really helpful here.
(especially when presenting on an external monitor, so there is some space for playback controls on the laptop's screen).
But as a short-term workaround, could we perhaps just have the basic:
play, pause, stop, play-again-from-start
options in the right-click menu?

+1 here. This would be a great enhancement! I read that Impress would have flicker free 3d slide transitions with LO 6.0. When there would be (basic) playback control for media in the presenter console Impress would be a real first class citizen.
I am surprised that this got so little attention. In life sciences, this is necessary to discuss part of a movie.
MS Office implements this very nicely. When user moves mouse over the video, a video playback control field appears at the bottom edge of the video (partially covering the video bottom edge). There, user can play/pause and navigate the video. After leaving from that area, control bar fades away quickly to display whole video unmasked.

This bug continues from 2011. It is really annoying. I depend on videos for my slide shows to then LO Impress useless for me. I'm linux user and I have to use WPS-Office for my presentation works, because there is no way to use videos on my presentation via Impres:(
This bug has to be handle...
agree - would love to see that feature! really essential!

+1, I see that 11 years have gone by since the original suggestion, and it's still not implemented. Wish I knew programming so I could help but all I can do is add to the 11-year ongoing request.
I am adding the keyword "accessibility" since this enhancement is essential for accessibility.
Success Criterion 1.4.2 in WCAG 2.1 requires that audio should not play automatically (unless it plays for at most three seconds or controls for the audio volume are available). This also applies to videos containing audio.
Success Criterion 2.2.2 in WCAG 2.1 requires that "for any moving, blinking or scrolling information that (1) starts automatically, (2) lasts more than five seconds, and (3) is presented in parallel with other content, there is a mechanism for the user to pause, stop, or hide it (...)".
These requirements have been applied to non-web documents in Chapter 10 of ETSI standard EN 301 549. (This is the accessibility standard that will apply when the European Accessibility Act enters into force in June 2025.)
