Please forward this email to the people who handle product support questions for LibreOffice Writer.

Dear Sir or Ms.,

I have been a very please long time user of your various products especially your writer product 
but now I have a question which I can not find the answer to and here is my question:

+) I am attempting to build an HTML Business Plan because I want several people to read it and I do 
not know what kind of word processors they will be using. In the Business Plan I wish to have a 
Sound Track so to speak playing a certain song while they are reading the business plan.

Personally, if I open a web page (or other HTML document) and it automatically starts playing music or other sounds, my immediate reaction is to close that page. It's just an annoyance, particularly in an office etc. where it also disturbs everyone else. I might mute the sound on my PC and then reopen the page, but more often I just don't bother. If you want people to actually read your business plan, it may be better NOT to play music in the background as soon as they open it!

I attempted to insert Sound using the insert Movie & Sound command but whatever sound I attempt to 
insert it always tells me that it is the wrong format. I have searched online and read the LibreOffice 
Writer owners manual to no avail AND I AM HOPING THAT YOU CAN HELP ME WITH THIS PROBLEM.


I'm not sure about that, although from Luuk's response it looks like at least MP3 should work. It will also depend on the formats supported by web browsers, although MP3 should be fine there. And if you're emailing this document, rather than hosting it on a web server, you'll also need to email the sound file separately, and instruct your readers/listeners to extract both files to an appropriate folder for the sound to work.

I thank you in advance for your assistance.

Very truly yours,

Dennis Regan
