libreoffice: don't know how to handle video
 
Hello,

I have emerged libreoffice with the USE flags below and still the
Insert->Movie and Sounds does not import any movies I tried (formats):
avi, mpg, ogg.
Every movie I tried plays fine with vlc on my machine.

Has anyone been able to insert and play movies in libreoffice?

Thanks,

-> equery uses libreoffice
[ Legend : U - final flag setting for installation]
[ : I - package is installed with flag ]
[ Colors : set, unset ]
* Found these USE flags for app-office/libreoffice-3.5.6.2:

formats

huge files result)

+ + cups : Add support for CUPS (Common Unix Printing System)
- - dbus : Enable dbus support for anything that needs it (gpsd,
gnomemeeting, etc)

Hi,

I have libreoffice-bin installed and I can insert video files into
presentations. I tried a few random files that were lying arround (mp4,
flv etc) and they all work.

Do you have the appropriate gstreamer plugins installed ?
have a look at the media-plugins/gst-plugins-meta package.

No I don't have that installed. I thought that the gstreamer USE flag in
libreoffice would take care of all gstreamer dependencies. Also I don't
use libreoffice-bin. I have been emerging libreoffice. Will emerge the
plugins. Do you think I need to reemerge libreoffice after emerging
gst-plugins-meta?


Thanks,

Nope. Gstreamer detects plug-ins on the fly. You can run revdep-rebuild
to make sure.

I emerged gst-plugins-meta with various USE flags and movie insertion in
libreoffice works now.


Thank you.
