I have tried all the dev releases of the upcoming OO 2.0 under Linux. Last I 
have had in use is the 1.9.77 release. In none of these the native insertion 
of video file in any format that I have tried (raw, avi, xvid, divx, mpg 
mpeg4) has worked. It simply can't play any of the formats I throw at it. 
There seems to be no configuration option. Does anybody have an idea how to 
get this going?

I have to completely agree with the initial poster. The support of video files 
is absolutely essential for a presentation in the scientific community. I 
usually work around the ppt file problem, by simply bringing my own laptop
