Impress 6 in ubuntu 18.04: video playback only as full screen

I am using Impress in ubuntu 18.04. When I embed a video and then put the presentation on slideshow, any slide with a video immediately starts playing the video fullscreen, rather than in the slide.

Based on googling through forums, I have been trying to make sure all gstreamer plugins are installed, but don't know if something is still missing. Or maybe it is something else entirely.

Any help would be appreciated!

I can confirm I have the same problem with LibreOffice 6.0.3 on Ubuntu 18.04. This problem was not present with LIbreOffice 5.X on Ubuntu 16.04.
