Description Per L 2014-12-08 14:25:44 UTC
Problem description:
When trying to add two or more files to the presentation. It will only add the first video a second time.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new presentation
2. Choose a layout containing two or more columns in the layout
3. Add a video (screen cast vid-1.webm) to the first column by clicking the alternative video.
4. Add a second video (Screen cast vid-2.webm) to the second column via files
5. "Ctrl+s" to save
6. "Shift+F5" to play the newly created slide

Current behavior:
Both videos are the same, only vid-1.webm

Expected behavior:
vid-1.webm is shown in the first column and vid-2.webm in the second column.

I cannot reproduce this problem:

ubuntu 14.04 x64
LibreOffice release

Attached is a sample document that I created, as you can see, two videos, working fine.

Is this only with webm files? Can you test with other formats? Can you find videos online that we can test the exact same files?

Setting to NEEDINFO - please provide additional information and set to UNCONFIRMED once you do. Thanks

Dangit - I can't attach (too large). But the file types that I tried were ogg and mp4 files.
