I will check. I can sed the video back, and have the text on top of

Not sure where you're going with text animation. I don't know whether
you're referring to the 'text animation' tab on the graphic styles
menu, or a custom transition. Either way, I can make nasty flickery
effects, but not keep the video at the back.
A text animation is an action added to a text, which allows to determine
how, where, when and for how long that text appears on the slide. I have
always managed to have text over other objects without issues, I have
not yet checked with the last version, but I can only work on it during
Thanks to all for the input.
The problem persists, but I'm guessing there's no solution. To sum up:
(1) embedding or linking produce different results: linking shows a
placeholder during slide transition, embedding shows a frame of video.
(2) The playing video is always on top of anything else; the placeholder
however does obey the on-top/to-back directives. This is independent of
video hardware and driver AFAICS.
(3) The flickering I noted in passing is driver-related: using the nv
driver, some slide transitions flicker; using nouveau they behave
properly. (Same sort of thing seems to happen with kdenlive's playback FWIW)
I sorted the weekend's presentation issue using OBS Studio. This even
allows a video to play continuously across scene transitions, which was
perfect for the job in hand. And, looking to the future, it allows
embedding of other applications' windows into the 'show', which offers a
lot of flexibility.
Probably best to close this thread now; thanks again.
