Adding Music to Impress Presentation

Postby CandiGoe » Mon Dec 26, 2016 11:22 pm

I am having a devil of a time trying to add an mp3 music file to my presentation. I followed the steps in the help section and I got the following error message:
OpenOffice 4.1.3
The format of the selected file is not supported.

I also tried it the other way by going in through the Tools section and still came up empty. I know there is a way to do this, but I have the faintest clue how. What "formats" ARE supported and how do I change the file that I want to insert?

Please help....i have a deadline of TOMORROW! :crazy:

Does the file play outside of Impress?

Here someone had the same error message and the reason was that the filename had special characters like "#" it renaming solved it.

Be careful, the mp3 won't be saved into your Impress-Document, the music file will only be linked, so be sure to put it into the same directory or a subfolder before inserting. And transfer all when saving eg. to usb.

Yes, the file plays fine outside of impress.
I've tried renaming, but I never use characters. Still no luck.
I will try you suggestion. Thank you all for your help.

Showing a video or playing a piece of sound during your slide presentation is a great way to help get your message across.
Here is a tip for you add a video or a piece of sound.
On the left side of the screen, click the thumbnail of the slide that you want to add the video or sound to.
On the Insert menu, select Movie and Sound. The Select File window opens.P movie sound.jpg
Locate your video file or sound file in the window, select it and click Open
To reduce the image area but keep the aspect ratio, press and hold Shift while you drag a corner handle.
To re-center the image, right-click it and then click Alignment > Centered
To preview the video or sound, use the icons on the Media Playback toolbar that displayed when you added the video or sound.
