"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."

You have to install "Java Media Framework" or use a Macro.

"You have to install "Java Media Framework" or use a Macro."

This will allow you to embed audio that will play throughout a presentation? It will not, though it will allow you to embed audio for a specific slide. I am talking marketing and e-Training type of stuff here, not basic presentations.

I will give it a try though to see if I missed anything. I would imagine then that the same framework will be required on the target machines when you take your USB key to play it back?
