Created attachment 95764 [details]
A presentation slide with a video element and a text box on top of the video element.

While editing a presentation slide, text can be placed on top of a video element; however, when the slideshow is run, the text is behind the video and is not visible.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a new presentation.
2. Insert a video on the slide.
3. Open a text box on top of the video and type some text.
4. Run the slideshow.

What happens:
The text does not show.

What should happen:
The text should appear on top of the video.

Confirmed under Debian 7 x86_64 running v4.3.0.2 Build ID: 14ed55896fdfcb93ff437b85c4f3e1923d2b1409 and Crunchbang 11 x86_64 running v4.4.0.0.alpha0+ Build ID: 3fdd4f069d5436cf39708004af7fda8175fbc4c2 (2014-07-09). All drawn objects are placed behind a video object in slideshow mode. Tested with multiple video formats / codecs and objects such as line, arrow, rectangle, oval, connector, and text box.
Status set to NEW. Platform to All/All.

I have just tested this bug by placing a text box in front of a video using version on Windows 7 64 bit. The text box still falls behind the video.

I guess this is 'by design' ?

I just tested this bug using Version: (x64). The text that is supposed to be in front of the video is still behind the video so that the text does not show.

My current computer is running Windows 10 Home.

MWE video place+size failure

The example in this bug report uses "full-screen" videos. However, when a video and text are placed on the same slide, there is an additional issue: the position and size of the video are ignored and it simply plays full screen on top of the text.

When in "presenter" mode (with two monitors), the video is played on both, so one can at least continue with the presentation. However, I would very much like to use slides with the general form of the one attached.

I was going to file a new bug, but it's probably just the same as this one? Let me know if you need me to file a new bug.
