Just wondering... I am trying to produce a PDF presentation from an Impress Presentation (ver 3.6). I added an MP3 (and also tried AIFF) to the first page. The audio plays well enough using the built-in slide-show in Impress. So, then I try to export to PDF. Builds it OK. But when I try to run the PDF presentation (Acrobat Reader X) - no audio.

Is this a problem with Acrobat, or does the PDF-export functionality not support embedded audio?

I have found a workaround - albiet a two-step process - with an additional freeware tool.
I just export the Impress presentation as a PDF, then I use a tool called "PDFrizator" to make some additional changes to the PDF document.

The tool can be found at
This tool is not too difficult to install/use, but it is not completely intuitive for users who are "technology challenged".

Hopefully this helps others (as a temporary workaround) until more PDF functionality can be built-in to LibreOffice.
