today Videos in H.264 encoding and MP4 container format are a defacto and most widely accepted modern multimedia format.
Although the libreoffice slide presenter supports embedding videos, it does not support this particular format, which is a major disadvantage.
Please support this file format or at least give a list of supported file formats. (I tried to convert, but did not find a format really working good.)

Depending on your platform, there are system restrictions like for osx
while in LO 126.96.36.199 I can not add any mp4 videos to presentation, in the latest nightly that works just fine.
I'm able to add a mp4 file and also play that file when starting the slideshow.
WORKSFORME. Further info: VLC installed and file plays when opening with QuickTime.
Hadmut, could you test this as well?
excuse the noise, this is the version this is working fine for me with:
