test video file
Problem description: after import of H.264 mp4 video to presentation, only grey questionmark is displayed (should be still of video).
Tested on OSX 10.9.2
Build ID: 2cd35d3abbf196ffaf0a4166841c0ecfe323c3ce
TinderBox: MacOSX-x86@49-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2014-04-13_14:45:59
Steps to reproduce:
1. open presentation
2. import attached mp4 h.264 test file
Current behavior: grey box with questionmark in light-grey is displayed.
Expected behavior: still image of the imported video should be displayed.
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: 18.104.22.168.alpha0+ Master
With Version: 22.214.171.124
Build ID: 3be8cda0bddd8e430d8cda1ebfd581265cca5a0f
LO refuses to insert the sequence into an Impress page, stating that the format is unrecognized.
This is despite the fact that the file displays and is presented fine in the OSX Quicktime player.
Will test later with my 4.3 master build, but I have built LO with VLC support on that, so the results may well be different.
So my master builds from the day before yesterday (14/04), whether built with or without the --enable-vlc switch, no longer enable me to insert any Quicktime supported video file into an Impress slide via (Insert - Image/Video) - I always get the error "unsupported format". This is the case too with the test video file provided in this bug report.
I would mention that my builds are 64bit on OSX 10.9.2.

Confirmed, the movie clip can be inserted, but does not display a preview image.

I can see the preview of the mp4, but if I launch the slideshow, no video is displayed, merely whitespace. The sound can be heard, however.

No videos of any kind can be inserted.

As far as I can tell from bug 56847 until comment 41 this seems to be a duplicate. Please feel free to change that if you do not share this opinion :)
