Description Yan Pas 2015-09-09 21:09:33 UTC
Media control is veeeery slow on linux. If I open any video or sound file in libreoffice it takes up to 15 secinds to begin play it. For example standart sounds from gallery. On windows everything begins to play instantly
Gstreamer version 0.10.36-1.2ubuntu3

Steps to repro:
1 Open Writer/Calc/Impress/Draw
2 Open gallery, sounds
3 drag and drop any sound to your document
Libreoffice will freeze for 10 seconds!
