I wish they would fix impress. Until it can use embedded audio/video, then it is useless to most marketing types. That is the number one preventer of me upgrading our shop to OO.

Yes, my boss also refused to touch it- we make extensive use of embedded videos in slides, and OOo is very poor in that department.

OK, that did NOT desrve to be modded down.

There's enough wrong with Microsoft/Windows/Office/ClSS and its fanboys already without people modding down constructive criticism of FOSS.

I don't know what version you're using, but I can embed audio and video into Impress slides perfectly well using OO.o 2.04 that comes with Ubuntu Edgy. It's as simple as clicking on Insert -> Video and Sound.

When I do that I get "Unsupported format". I am inserting a wav file.
