Description Thorsten Rochelmeyer 2014-11-05 16:22:02 UTC
Please add an option to impress to start a movie within an impress slide by clicking. Right now it starts as soon as the slide pops up which is not optimal for some situations. 
I would also really appreciate the option to specify only parts of the movie to be show, e.g. form second x to y

Setting as NEW, valid enhancement. Powerpoint do this as default.

All those workarounds are not a replacement for this feature. You got to find those workarounds first, pretty much impossible for those not speaking english, annoying for those who do.
