In #83808 we already agreed that scaling images unproportionally by default is a rather stupid thing to do.

This bug is about adding identical defaults for scaling video.

Currently: resizing a video loses proportions.

Expected: almost no users want unproportional videos in their presentations, thus LO should default to scaling videos proportianlly.

Confirming on OSX 10.10.1 with LO Version:

in OSX Keynote, for example, the default is to maintain aspect ration when resizing.

Samuel recently set it to proportionality scale images in all apps in bug 83808, with this commit - http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=ef58e10844dff60cd218306b059ec81d8421f961

I think the only place it really is needed to be added is in impress as audio and video insertion isnt really done anywhere else.

Video resizing in writer is proportional.
Same for Impress.

Calling this fixed, verified.
