I have used Impress for many years. Suddenly, video clips are flickering. It happens very fast, but it looks like the flicker is showing the thumbnail of the video. If i link the video, then it shows the gray box with the question mark. If I insert the video, it shows the video thumbnail frame.

Libreoffice version: OS: Ubuntu 17.04

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The same happens to me (also using Ubuntu 17.04 and LibreOffice When the video is shown, it flickers a lot; I have tried different formats: mp4, ogg, wmv.

I also have tried many formats. Nothing seems to work. I wiped the hard drive and reinstalled Ubuntu and it's still doing it. Anyone found any solutions?

If I press the right mouse button somewhere on the screen it stops flickering, however, it will show the context menu, and it showed the menu bar.

Found a solution in the bug report of this problem by Regis Perdreau:

In Libreoffice Menu: Tools->options->LibreOffice Impress-> General, uncheck "use background cache". It seems to reduce flickering to nothing.

It worked for me but only after restarting Impress.
