OpenOffice Impress no sound

Asked by Jeffrey Alan Herrington

OpenOffice Impress - No media player or able to add sound to my slides. I can get Media Player to open but it wont play. Plus when I open Insert Object's there is now sound to click on to insert into the slide. Any help much appreciated.

Software Umbuntu Breezy

Many thanks Jeffrey.

PS if I knew how to setup my Belkin54g card in Kubuntu I would be using that instead.

Hello Jeffrey,

In my opinion you have codec problems because mine is working just fine. Have you installed w32codecs if not then check here
I am using xine engine both for totem, kaffeine, and they work fine, I can insert media formats into Impress and they are played on my pc. In my opinion install w32codecs and a xine engine.
You can get everything about restricted formats at the link above and xine engine at

Can you help with this problem?
