I am writing a presentation which contains lots of short video files scattered in various folders. I would like to embed them in the presentation so I can copy the presentation freely without tracking down the video files.

I am fairly new to impress, but I am a long time user or Ooo Writer. Hence, I went to Edit/Links to brake the links and embed the files in the presentation. Unfortunately it is greyed out.

When I move the presentation to a new folder I loose the videos whilst the images are there.
I added the videos using Insert/Movie and sound.

Is it possible to break the link and embed the videos into the presentation so the resulting .opd file contains everything needed for the presentation?

Thanks

Thanks Andrew,

How about at least tracking down the path of videos already added? The Edit/Links should make it possible to look at links. Breaking them is another issue.

It is a good idea sometimes not to embed a video or image, hence if the video/image changes, as it happens to me a lot, I do not have to go through, add and format them again.

I do not agree that videos must be embedded in a presentation by default. In fact, images shouldn't be either. There should be a choice like in writer.

I guess my question has two parts:
- Is it possible to see what is linked into a presentation?
- Is it possible to break the link?

Is the answer no, no?

Through the standard GUI, I think no. However, if you really want, you could unzip the .ods file and search through the XML.

Also, it should be possible to write a BASIC macro to find the paths for you.

No, I think that's what the issue is about.
