Thank you again.
Firstly, I was using drag-and-drop rather than using the menu & insert.
It does seem the behaviour is unexpectedly different, and during design,
d&d shows the icon, while 'insert' shows a frame from the video. As you
say, the icon does not appear when playing under your conditions.
As it works for you I wonder if there's an issue with video drivers. I'm
using nvidia-340, on some rather old hardware. There is some obscure
bug(s) that seems to affect both LO and kdenlive, causing flashing
during some fades (LO/Impress) or sometimes during video playback
I'll try this on my laptop, and see if it works any better.
Sorry for following up my own post, but the laptop results were
unexpected. Either drag-and-drop or using menu Insert gave the same
results - both produced an object showing the blue 'film' icon, in the
design mode, and at the video start when running a slide show. It's a
recent low-end Dell pentium laptop, Intel integrated graphics. It's
running the same version of LO/Mint as the desktop I normally use.
