Insert video in impress presentation on libreoffice.

' src=

Embedding videos in an Impress presentation is tricky, depending on your system and other factors. This article deep dives into this and will help you insert a video inside a slide in Impress and play it.

Inserting videos in LibreOffice impress has its own troubles (for some users). Being an open-source and free project, the features and bug fixes are sometimes delayed. Inserting videos was a bit difficult back in time due to format issues (e.g. mp4, etc.) and platform (Windows/Linux) issues.

However, with the recent release of LibreOffice, it is now easier to insert videos in Impress.

LibreOffice doesn’t support media files directly. It relies on the Operating system’s installed media support. You can insert any video into the presentation if your OS supports the media with available codecs.

Table of Contents

In Windows systems, LibreOffice /Impress uses DirectShow for media playback. Windows, by default, comes with pre-installed media support. However, additional media can be supported using the K-Lite codec pack, which contains most codecs and container formats.

In Linux-based systems, LibreOffice /Impress uses GStreamer for media playback. GStreamer comes with essential codecs in Linux systems, including Ubuntu-based derivatives. You can have additional codec and format support by installing extra packages.

Inserting a Video in Impress

  • To insert a video from the menu, select Insert > Audio or Video .
  • From the file selection dialog box, choose the video to be inserted.
  • If the video is supported, you will see it inside the slide.
  • If the video is not supported, you will get a message: ‘ The format of the selected file is not supported ’.

Impress Insert Video Menu

You may install an additional K-Lite codec pack for more media support for Windows.

For Linux, install the packages below if your distro uses gstreamer 0.10. You can get those installed via apt, synaptic in Ubuntu.

Current List of Supported File Formats: Windows and Linux

As LibreOffice Impress is constantly evolving and being enhanced along with Windows and Linux, it is always wise to check the supported file types. Refer to the wiki pages, which contain the supported lists.

Playing the Video

  • While not in presentation mode, you can control the playing via Media playback tools via the sidebar.
  • The video will likely be full screen during presentation mode and may flicker sometimes. This happens when there is a codec problem.
  • Impress does not store the embedded videos inside the presentation files. So, if you remove the video from the path or distribute the presentation to others, distribute the inserted video files along with it.

Removing the Video

You can simply select the video inside the slide and click delete to remove it.

Watch Video

You may want to watch the below video on how it is done. Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel .

This is the easiest way to insert any video in the Impress presentation slide. Make sure to install the codecs required and save the file. If you are carrying your presentation via cloud/Drive or USB stick, make sure to take the video file as well and keep the video in the same place as the Impress file.

Thanks for this. But gstreamer0.10 my Ubuntu 19.04 has gstreamer1.0 is this a typo or I should downgrade several editions?

eks

To get rid of the flicker in linux you can set the env item SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN to “gen”. On Ubuntu I added the following line to /etc/environment

SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gen

and then logged out and back in

I have a curious problem – I create presentations with Impress and they work very well – during presentations. But if someone opens this :

a. via Google Drive b. or on their PC using Powerpoint

the videos are not seen on the slide, and consequently not playing.

What could be the issue ?

With regards

arindam

See, as I mentioned, if you are saving your presentations in GDrive or any other machines, you have to keep the video files in the same location as the presentation. The video files are NOT part of Impress presentation files. They are referenced externally via the imported path when in presentation mode.

Cleo

I have a similar problem. I can hear the sound of the video, but the video is opened in another screen. How can I change that? The video files are in the same location as the presentation.

Which operating system you are using?

How to Convert OpenOffice Impress ODP File to Playable Video?

Author

Updated on Feb 5, 2024

As you know, an .odp file stands for OpenDocument Presentation that is created by Apache OpenOffice Impress and its successor LibreOffice Impress. A surprising number of people wonder whether it is possible to convert a LibreOffice/OpenOffice Impress presentation into a video . Fortunately, you'll find two satisfactory solutions below.

BTW, if needed, try this all-in-one application for video recording, downloading, editing and conversion:

There is No Direct Way to Export ODP File to Video!

Convert ODP to Video

Sometimes, LibreOffice/OpenOffice Impress users may want to save the .odp presentation as a video for convenient playback since the .odp file probably can't perform well on all computers due to the differences between applications that use the OpenDocument Format. Unfortunately, the official hasn't provided the video export option yet.

In practical terms, many people have requested this feature over the years. Even to this day, however, it still makes no progress other than being able to natively export the presentation as an SWF file, an old Flash animation format that is not compatible with most media players. After ransacking over the web, I've compiled two accessible ways to convert .odp to video . Go ahead!

WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro

  • 1. Simply record ODP demo in custom window or full screen.
  • 2. Record live streams, gameplay, video call, etc. with ease.
  • 3. Trim, merge, flip, crop, rotate, watermark video easily.
  • 4. Convert video to MP4, MKV and 500+ configured presets.
  • 5. Compress large videos with minimal quality loss.
  • 6. Modify video parameters like resolution, bitrate, etc at will.
  • 7. Download HD/FHD/UHD videos from 1000+ websites.
  • 8. Add/extract subtitles, make animated GIFs and more...

Workaround 1 - How to Convert ODP Presentation to AVI with OpenOffice Impress Extension?

Thanks to Beaussier en ligne, who developed a handy OpenOffice Impress Extension - Impress Video Converter, you're allowed to export an ODP presentation to a slideshow video in AVI format. Let's see how it works.

Step 1. Visit Impress Video Converter page https://extensions.openoffice.org/en/project/impress-video-converter and download this extension file " Impress2video.oxt ".

Download Impress2video Extension

Step 2. Open OpenOffice Impress, click on " Tools " on top menu bar and select " Extension Manager ". On "Extension Manager" window, press " Add " button to load your downloaded " Impress2video.oxt " extension file for installation.

Step 3. Once the installation is finished, you'll see " Impress video converter " option in Extension Manager window. To activate the extension, it requires you to restart OpenOffice Impress to make it work.

Install Extension in OpenOffice Impress

Step 4. Open your .odp presentation this time, click on " File " and navigate to the additional " Export as video " option. On the pop-up dialogue box, specify interval time between slides, video name and destination directory to save the video. Lastly, hit " Execute " button to convert ODP to AVI video.

Note: The extension is compatible with any LibreOffice IN GNU/LINUX, but not in Windows. Meanwhile, it delivers a relatively low video quality without sounds, transitions, animations and special effects. If you're not satisfied with the result, just turn to workaround 2.

Convert OpenOffice Presentation into Video

Simply Record ODP Presentation to MP4

HD Video Converter Factory Pro is an all-in-one video processing toolkit integrated with a simple recorder for Beginners. No complex features, it can record your ODP presentation without lag in high-quality MP4. You can also use it to record streaming videos, video calls, meetings and more. Moreover, it allows you to edit the recordings (trim, crop…), compress and convert the videos to other formats at will. Try it now!

Workaround 2 - How to Turn OpenOffice Impress Presentation into Video by Recording?

Someone said that the cornerstone and soul of a presentation are the transitions, animations and effects. I agree with this view. After all, the converted video still lacks a lot of details and essence, while the recorded video is equivalent to a simulated presentation by yourself, which will present a better result.

You're able to record your presentation with either familiar paid or free video capture programs . In order to cater to non-tech-savvy people, I'll demonstrate the details with a super lightweight freeware - Screenrec .

Step 1. Visit https://screenrec.com/ to download and install this program. Run it and there will be a back menu bar sticking at the right side of your desktop screen. Click on the Gear icon to open Settings window. Register a free account to validate unlimited HD recoding without watermark. Also, you can enable sound recording and set hotkeys to start and end the capture.

Register a Free Account

Step 2. After logging in your account, open your ODP presentation. Click on the camcorder icon to drag an area and start the video recording, it will capture the activities in the area automatically. Now you can start your presentation for recording.

Record the ODP Presentation

Step 3. When the presentation is over, stop the recording, Screenrec will automatically upload the video and generate a private share link. You'll see the notification in the lower right corner of your desktop screen.

Finish Recording

Step 4. Head over to the back menu bar and click on the picture icon to open "Screenrec Gallery", where saves your recoding history. Preview the video and hit the Download button to save your presentation as a .mp4 video file.

Practical AIO Video & Audio Transcoder

Run into any video and audio unsupported issue? No worries any more! WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro inherently comes with rich video/audio codecs that allow people to easily convert video and audio files to 500+ formats and devices for hassle-free playback without a hitch. It's primarily designed to solve any format incompatibility issue and simplify the video/audio processing job. Download it and have a try!

That's it! You can choose either method based on your actual needs. Some people suggest that Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2010 and higher version is capable of opening and exporting .odp file to MP4. Indeed, I have confirmed that. However, it's not recommended. On one hand, not everyone has purchased Microsoft Office. On the other hand, when you open an ODP file in PowerPoint, it might not have the same formatting or cannot read some content as it did in the original application. If I find a better solution to ODP to video conversion, I'll make an update in the article. Stay tuned with us.

Adding video to an OpenOffice Impress presentation (Shallow Thoughts)

Fri, 05 mar 2010, adding video to an openoffice impress presentation, (and how to convert mpeg video to animated gif), impress woes, inserting a movie, plan b: animated gif, the moment of truth.

Or just use HTML. The great irony of this whole story is that some of the other presenters used their own laptops, so I probably could have used my HTML version (which had none of these problems) had I asked. I will definitely remember that for the next Ignite! Meanwhile, I suppose it's good for me to try OO Impress every few years and remind myself why I avoid it the rest of the time.

OpenOffice Impress Review

Open PowerPoint files for free and create your own presentations

open office presentation supported video formats

  • Emporia State University

OpenOffice Impress is the free presentation software included in OpenOffice , which is an office suite that also has a word processor , spreadsheet program , and database software.

There are tons of great presentation making features in Impress, and it supports all the common file formats that other presentation programs use. It runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Automatic spell check as you type.

Intuitive interface.

Tons of basic and advanced features.

Doesn't require installation (there's a portable version).

The whole office suite must be downloaded just to use Impress.

Boring program interface; not the most user-friendly program.

Large setup file, so download may be slow.

Other office tools try to install alongside Impress.

Can't save to PPTX or POTX.

OpenOffice Impress Supported File Formats

Below are just some of the file formats supported by OpenOffice, specifically the ones that work with Impress. If you're using Impress as a replacement for PowerPoint, you'll be pleased to know it can open PPTX files.

Open Formats

PPTM , PPTX, POTM, POTX , PPT, PPS, POT, ODP, OTP, SXI, STI, SXD, CGM, UOP, UOF, ODG

Save Formats

PPT, POT, ODP, OTP, SXI, STI, SXD, UOP, ODG, as well as HTML, PDF, SWF, and image formats like JPG, GIF, SVG, TIF, PNG, RAS, BMP

As you can see, Impress can open PPTX files, but it can't save back to that same format. A free document converter can help if you need the file to exist in that format.

OpenOffice Impress Description

Here are some more notable features:

  • If you accept the defaults during the installation, you also get other free office tools like Writer , Calc, Base, Draw, and Math.
  • There are program extensions for Impress that you can install for added functionality, as well as free slideshow templates .
  • A wizard can guide you through setting up a presentation from scratch.
  • Slides can be hidden so you can keep them without displaying them during a presentation.
  • Keyboard shortcuts can me modified for several commands.
  • A menu on the bottom allows for easy access to things like shapes and other import options.
  • The case of words can be changed in batch, such as making the first letter of every word capitalized and changing all letters to lowercase or uppercase.
  • The number of allowed undo steps can be modified to up to 100 steps.
  • Slide Sorter  makes is really easy to rearrange several slides.
  • A number of slide transitions are available like  Shape Plus, Uncover Left,  and  Wipe Down. They can be applied upon a click of your mouse or after a set number of seconds.
  • Tons of toolbars can be shown or hidden and even detached from the main program.
  • Common formatting options are allowed like changing font type, size, color, and alignment.
  • Tables and charts can be used.
  • Rehearse Timings is a way to go through the slideshow to see how long it'll take you to get through all the slides. That way, the next time you present it with automatic slide changes, the timing will be as it was recorded.
  • Video and sound files can be imported onto a slide.
  • Notes can be added to slides; ideal for reading from during a presentation.
  • Loads of animations can be chosen from like ones for an entrance, emphasis, exit, motion path, and other types.
  • Advanced tools are available like Color Replacer  to replace up to four source colors at once with a custom tolerance level and  XML Filter Settings.
  • A header and footer can be applied to slides, notes, and handouts to include the current date and time, custom text, or slide page number.

  • A massive gallery of images holds things like arrows, bullets, computer images, finance pictures, rulers, and many other types of importable graphics.
  • A side menu is available for easy access to text properties, animations, styles, and the gallery.
  • Several advanced options can be modified such as the amount of memory the program can use for graphics, whether hardware acceleration should be used, macro security settings, how often to save AutoRecovery information, and custom websites for web searches.
  • Make custom slideshows that don't show all the slides.
  • Includes a built-in media player that supports sound and video files.

Our Thoughts on OpenOffice Impress

The wealth of features in Impress make it a great program for making presentations. Not only is it great for creating a new slideshow or editing an existing one, but it has all the bells and whistles you'd expect for presenting the file, too.

We especially like that you can use it in a portable form from something like a flash drive. However, we don't  like that you're required to download the whole suite just to use this one program. This means you're downloading and storing files that take up around several hundred megabytes of storage even if you only want to use the presentation software.

Similarly, if you download the installable version, you have to download the whole suite at once which might take a while to get if you have a slow internet connection. However, once you begin installing it, you're given the option to only add Impress to your computer if you don't want the other office tools.

We like that Impress can open such a large number of popular file formats. Some of the more common ones include those found in PowerPoint like POTM, POTX , and PPTM.

The interface isn't too hard to navigate through but we find WPS Office's Presentation program to be much easier, and it even includes many of the same tools and features.

Message: Video Format not supported Impress

I am trying to play an MP4 file in Libre Office Impress and getting the error message “Format Not Supported”

I am running Libre Office Version: 6.2.4.2 (x64) on a new computer running Windows 10 64 which is regularly updated

I have read some of the older posts relating to previous version but wonder if anyone has more recent information as to how to resolve this problem. I am trying to put together a simple presentation featuring some audio and a video for the day after tomorrow with limited time.

Any assistance gratefully received

As described at Media Support - The Document Foundation Wiki , audio/video support depends on specific components installed on operating system. In Windows case , it’s DirectShow codecs; and you are advised to install third-party codec packs in case when ther’s no pre-installed DirectShow codec available.

Thank you for your reply.

is this the appropriate codec pack?

or do I need to look elsewhere? Apologies for asking rather than trying, limited internet access.

Please don’t “answer” when you are not giving an answer to the original question. Every Answer is supposed to contain a proposed solution to the stated problem. Your reply is a comment, and should be re-posted as such.

As to the codec pack - one (K-Lite) is mentioned in the page I linked from my answer. I don’t know if that one you found is also appropriate or not.

Thank you for the reply. I was able to download the Codecs and was able to use Impress for a Funeral today.
