How to convert all linked videos to embedded videos?

I use linked videos while making a presentation to avoid the overhead of embedding. However, when the presentation is finished, I typically want to be able to export a copy of the presentation with all videos embedded.

There are two compelling reasons for this: backups and longevity. If something goes wrong at presentation time, there is a backup that can easily be played on someone else's machine, and many years later the presentation will still work even though videos files are not necessarily in the same relative location.

So, is there a way to do this? I'm using Impress 3.5.7.2 on Ubuntu 12.04, but newer versions are fine too.
