How do I include sound and video files in a presentation?

To insert a media file into your presentation:

  • go to Insert ▸ Movie and Sound on the menu bar to open the Insert Movie and Sound dialog. FAQ Impress 101 InsertM&SDialog.png
  • 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:

  1. Place any media files which are included in a presentation in the same folder where the presentation is stored.
  2. Insert the media file in the presentation.
  3. 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.
