Subject Release Notes doesn't mention about new feature of AOO Impress for Linux (video playing via gst-plugins)
Date Sat, 17 Mar 2012 14:37:26 GMT
Hi to all!

I looked over the "AOO 3.4 Release Notes"
and don't found any mention about implementation of one very remarcable 
feature OpenOffice Impress in Linux systems.

Early videoplaying in presentation was available only though 
1. Java Media Frameworks (JMF) - but it had very poor number of supported 
2. or via external shell scripts 
which run external video player with specified options.

In the Oracle OpenOffice 3.4 beta (and I check that it works with current  
Apache OpenOffice 3.4 build) it is now avalable to play video in Impress 
presentation via using appropriate gst-plugins.

Please, add information about this new feature to "Release Notes" 
("New Features from OpenOffice 3.4 beta" section).

It will be a good news for many users as it is not supported in OpenOffice 3.3.0 
and in more early versions.
