Description Mikhail Novosyolov 2016-03-30 09:40:34 UTC
To reproduce the bug:
1. Open Impress, any version, I tried from 4.2 to 5.1
2. Insert -- Media. Insert an audio file.
3. Impress will hang for a minute.
4. Switch to another slide and switch back to the slide with audio. Impress will hang.

I googled for this issue and saw some people reporting that this issue appered after Ubuntu 12.04 LTS when a new version of Gstreamer had been started to be used.

MKV video files seem to work OK.

OpenOffice 4 works correctly and this issue is not reprodusible inside Apache OpenOffice
Comment 2 Mikhail Novosyolov 2016-03-30 09:52:29 UTC
And yes it is reproduced on Linux only.
