    Default LibreOffice Impress hangs on inserting video / or mismatch of codecs?

    I had installed openSUSE 15.3 fresh on a desktop partition. I found that when I inserted videos in Impress, it would hang. It was a .mp4 specifically, but I just tried a .webm and it hung also. I then did an upgrade of a laptop and inserting videos worked fine. I then used a new partition on my desktop and inserting videos in Impress worked fine there. However, rather than switching and getting everything set up to where I almost have original partition, is there some way of fixing this? In trying to get this to work, I had added LibreOffice:7.3 respository, and coming across something of past issues attempted to uninstall and reinstall codecs, switched system packages back and forth, and so now I think things could be a real mess. I can play mp4 videos just fine otherwise in a browser and with smplayer.

    I think what threw me initially on switching system packages were all the extra additional ones I wasn't familiar with. Normally, I try to switch to the update repository, then switch to packman. But I wasn't sure what order for the new ones and it gave me odd questions regarding Enterprise and backports. I do not understand how those fit in the scheme of things. I must have answered better in the other installs.

    Here are my active repositories. I don't know if that shows anything useful for the issue.

    If switching system repositories is the issue, any way of resetting things to try again?

    I see some extra LibreOffice repo in your repo list. You do not mention that you do not run the standard Leap 15.3 LibreOffice. To me it seems a crucial fact to mention when you have a LibreOffice problem.

    I'm sorry, I guess I thought I did. Is this not as clear as what I thought? And I added that repository after I had the problem.

    I see now that although I added the repository, I had not updated the LibreOffice version. It is still on 7.2. I don't know if I should try it, or that's not the problem since it works on other systems and partitions.

    I am not sure what you did. Adding a repository makes only the packages that are on it available for installation. As long as you do not install anything, nothing will change.

    It is like making yourself member of a library. As long as you do not got there to get books, you still have nothing to read.

    You can see what you have with
    Code:
    zypper se -s libreoffice

    Here is some of the list:
    I don't understand all what it means. But I can remove the 7.3 repository to simplify things. What after that? I guess I would switch system to update repositories? And then follow that to Packman?

    Code:
    Repository 'LibreOffice:7.3' is out-of-date. You can run 'zypper refresh' as root to update it.
    Repository 'Update repository with updates from SUSE Linux Enterprise 15' is out-of-date. You can run 'zypper refresh' as root to update it.

    And some of the confusion I have with 15.3 is with 1-Click installs. For example, here is part of what one has and I've seen that in the past in trying to do LibreOffice repository, that confuses me so I do the expert install to manually add the repositories, which are less (usually just the expected 1) than what's listed in the 1-click. So I may have got other things out of whack.
    1-Click of Repositories to be added:
    Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.3/repo/oss/ (openSUSE:Leap:15.3)
    http://download.opensuse.org/update/leap/15.3/backports/ (openSUSE:Backports:SLE-15-SP3:Update)
    http://download.opensuse.org/update/leap/15.3/oss/ (openSUSE:Leap:15.3:Update)
    http://download.opensuse.org/update/leap/15.3/sle/ (SUSE:SLE-15-SP3:Update)
    https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/SUSE:/SLE-15-SP1:/GA/pool/ (SUSE:SLE-15-SP1:GA)
    https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/SUSE:/SLE-15-SP1:/Update/pool/ (SUSE:SLE-15-SP1:Update)
    https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/SUSE:/SLE-15-SP2:/GA/pool/ (SUSE:SLE-15-SP2:GA)
    https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/SUSE:/SLE-15-SP2:/Update/pool/ (SUSE:SLE-15-SP2:Update)
    https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/SUSE:/SLE-15-SP3:/GA/pool/ (SUSE:SLE-15-SP3:GA)
    https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/SUSE:/SLE-15:/Update/pool/ (SUSE:SLE-15:Update)
    What's all that stuff? GA/pool, SP1 2 3? Is that useful, needed?

    Sorry, but I have no idea what you want and what you are trying to do to get what you want.

    First, please when you post computer output do so including he prompt command line. You did so in your first post above, but in the other posts we can not see what you did and have only some arbitrary output out of the blue.

    You say in your first post you did a fresh install of 15.3. But then you talk about extra LibreOffice repos and one-click installs. Why all that fuss. What is the problem with LibreOffice as delivered with openSUSE 15.3? It just should work.

    Ok, I did what I thought should work and what has worked in the past with installing 15.3 on a new partition.

    LibreOffice Impress presentation hangs when I insert a video.

    That is the only problem I am wishing to solve at this time.


    In attempting to solve it on my own, I did several different things. They didn't work.
    One of the things I did was install 15.3 on yet another partition. It works. Which proves my computer, LibreOffice, and 15.3 "can" work as expected.

    Without abandoning my first partition where I have everything else kind of set up so I can use it, (and on a large partition so I don't overflow it), is it possible for me to get LibreOffice Impress to accept inserting videos?

    Partition 1, does not work.
    Partition 2, does work. But it is small in size and nothing else set up that I already set up in partition 1.

    I had done the command:
    zypper se -s libreoffice

    But it gave large amounts of output and when I went to post it here, it said it was too much. Noticing a repeating pattern for every item in LibreOffice, I listed the first section. I had to send the output to a file, and then just copied the first section of the file. Sorry I didn't include the command. It wasn't in the file.

    With the 1-click, there was no command. I just clicked on the web page. I suppose I could have listed the web page, but it is the same for every one I had clicked on so it was a general question and not specific. I tried to find an example now, but software.opensuse.org isn't listing any software I can find for 15.3.
