This page describes media support provided by LibreOffice on Microsoft Windows.
- HINT: For a summary of supported media types, look at the tables on the Media Support/Summary page.
Extensive testing is the best way to verify media support. If we have any major regressions, we can document our testing here or in Bugzilla.
For the most part, the tables on the main Media Support page can reference the Wiki and Bugzilla. Let's try to use useful identifiers for each test table below so that we can easily link to tests from cells in those tables.
Audio and Video Support
On Windows, media support is provided through the DirectShow multimedia framework.
DirectShow default codec support
Adding support for an additional codec
DirectShow codecs for Xiph formats (Ogg, Speex, Vorbis, Opus, Theora, etc..) as well as WebM (Mkv, Vorbis, VP8) can be found in the Xiph DirectShow 'opencodecs' bundle:
There's a Free/Open Source Software DirectShow/Video-for-Windows codec
"ffdshow tryouts is a DirectShow and Video for Windows codec with support for a wide range of audio and video formats, such as Xvid, DivX, and H.264. It includes a powerful filter set that can enhance the video quality - with filters for resizing, deinterlacing, and displaying subtitles - as well as audio quality through normalization, down-/upmixing, and resampling."
K-Lite Codec Pack
There's also a codec pack that has been recommended on the answers.microsoft.com site.
