As the title says, I have a presentation created in MS PowerPoint 2016 with embedded videos (MP4 / H.264). This format is supported by my operating system (Windows 10) and the videos reliable work in MS PowerPoint 2016.
In Impress 6.0.4, instead of the video, a question mark is shown, no video.
What I already tried is:
Exporting the power point as ODF in MS PowerPoint, but then instead of the video a box with a “ODF” file icon is shown, no video either.
As a last resort, I even saved the video from PowerPoint as a separate .mp4 file, then tried to import it back in LibreOffice, but then it says the format is not supported. (But I clearly do not want to do this with every power point I created in the past, so I prefer a solution where I can just open the pptx file and it works out-of-the-box)
Note that I am currently evaluating switching to LibreOffice since my Office student license expires, and most of the things work fine. Only the video problem is holding me back right now. To buy a new license, due to M$ current price politics, I would need to pay a lot of money, really a lot… Of course I would love to donate large parts of that money to an open source community instead, but I need a 100% working product then. Not a 95% working product.
