Description PeeWee 2013-06-15 10:32:50 UTC
When a media or sound file is inserted into an Impress slide, the Media Playback window immediately opens. This window is placed in the top left corner of the display and cannot be moved to a new position and cannot be closed. This window also stays on top of all LibreOffice windows.

Closing LibreOffice does not close this Media Playback window. When you open a presentation LIbreOffice again and open a presentation that does not contain a media or sound file, this window still opens and stays on top of all LibreOffice windows.

The Media Playback toolbar can still be opened, used and closed with out any problems.

This bug only happens in a Linux operating system. I am using the latest version of Ubuntu on a Toshiba laptop.

Can I get a screenshot of what you are referring to. When I do insert -> Movies & Sound, and select a MP3, insert it and nothing pops up, works as expected.

I'm running Bodhi Linux which is based on Ubuntu 12.04

Marking as NEEDINFO - once you attach image and clarify steps (if mine are wrong) mark as UNCONFIRMED and we will try to reproduce.

Screenshot of Media Player Bug

Attached is a screenshot showing the behaviour of the Media Player in Impress. The Media Player stays on top of all LibreOffice windows in all LibreOffice modules and cannot be repositioned. The only way to close the Media Player is to go Tools on the main menu bar and deselect Media Player.
