Dear users!

It seems to me, that there is a bug with showing videos:

When I insert a .avi file via Insert-->"Video and sounds" (I tried to translate the menu items from my german version) and start the presentation, when I come to the slide which contains the video, the viedo plays sometimes corrently and sometimes the screen remains black, but the music of the video runs. When I go back and forward again one slide, than the video sometimes shows correctly, again.

Can someone confirm this behaviour?

At least you can sometimes get it to work properly. I am having a similar problem with inserting/playing avi's in my presentation. When I advance to a slide with a movie the movie starts to play but goes black after the first couple frames (out of 100+ frames). I don't have sound for my movies so I can't confirm the sound still going like in your movies. I have two problems with this that I need solved:

1) how can I get my movies to play all the way through without going black.
2) I want my movies to run ONLY when I click on them, not automatically. I tried using the custom interaction options but nothing worked. Either it didn't affect it, or it stopped the movie from playing at all.

I also tried (again through the interactions) to have the windows media player open when I clicked on the movie, but that doesn't work. Nothing opens and the movie doesn't play.

Anybody have movies (avi's) working in your presentations? How'd you do it?

BTW, I'm using OOo 2.0.2 on a Dell latitude D810 (2.2 GHz Pentium M).
