Hi :)
There is an guide for Impress;

But i don't know the answer myself.  I've not seen that particular question
before.  Usually people get stuck with trying to get any video embedding to
work at all so i'm impressed with how far you have got.

Out of curiosity have you considered an "artistic work-around" such as
making the 2nd frame a crackly white-noise/snow, to make it look as though
the weird start was a deliberate teaser?

Regards from
Tom :)

[resent as I used wrong sending email address - apologies if it appears

Hi; somewhat pressing problem here; would be grateful for any help.

I'm trying to put a video into an Impress presentation. It all works,
/except/ for a (single?) wrong frame at start and end making a nasty

On embedding a video, a frame is picked from somewhere in the video (not
the first), which is shown in edit mode to provide something to see and
manipulate in the editor. If the video is linked, I get a grey rectangle
with a '?' in it instead. That's OK.

The problem I have is that when the presentation runs, the video plays OK
except it both starts and ends with that particular frame showing very
briefly. This makes a nasty flicker at start and end.

Fading in doesn't help - the extraneous frame is faded in, and then the
video plays.

This is with LO on Mint 17 (64 bit). But I'm almost sure the issue
goes back to OpenOffice days and XP. I've found nothing on the web even
mentioning this issue.

I'm hoping I'm just missing something simple! I'd be grateful for any help
- I'm trying to get this running for tomorrow. Thanks.
