Description Nadav Kavalerchik 2007-07-08 08:52:27 EDT
Description of problem:

unable to embed and play MOST video and audio media contents we have in
OpenOffice documents, although we tried the JMF addon which is very limited and
can only play some specific wav audio, mov and mpeg-1 video streams. it would be
very helpful if you can patch openoffice packages with the gstreamer extension
(like debian does) so many more multimedia streams can be used with the office

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

We already include that gstreamer patch, make sure that you are already able to
play the various video streams with totem which uses gstreamer by default.

So, it *should* work already. Can you attach a small demo video which doesn't
work in office, but does with in totem.
Comment 3 Nadav Kavalerchik 2007-07-09 13:48:56 EDT
oups, sorry :-) 

i forgot that we updated the servers with a localized version of OO that does
not  come with the gstreamer patch.

I've installed the original (international) packages and all works fine !
sorry for not being mindful about the upgrade.

please close this one :-)

(btw, i filed a bug report with the Hebrew OO localized team)
Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2007-07-10 03:24:06 EDT
no problem. FWIW if there is a cohesive set of patches for he_IL localization
which haven't been synced into the master upstream yet I could always consider
adding them to the fedora builds.
