Frequently asked questions - Impress
How do I include sound and video files in a presentation?
To insert a media file into your presentation:
- Select the media file to insert and click Open to place the object on the slide.
Impress only links media files and does not embed a media file into a presentation. Therefore if a presentation is moved to a different computer, any links will be broken and the media files will not play. To prevent this from happening:
- Place any media files which are included in a presentation in the same folder where the presentation is stored.
- Insert the media file in the presentation.
- Send both the presentation and any media files to the computer which is to be used for the presentation and place both files in the same folder on that computer.
