Impress does not support audio file format

Postby Tregarth » Thu Jan 19, 2017 6:30 pm

I am trying to add an MP3 file (which I have downloaded) into Impress to a presentation and seen a message that it does not support this format. In a different post it was stated that Impress does not like the # in the imported file name so I have renamed the file to X i.e.x.mp3

But it still will not import, what do I need to do to import the file, please?

I am using Win 10 and Impress 4.1.3

Thank you.

X i.e.x.mp3

Why you used more than one 'dot' extension separator characters and space in the file name?

I have renamed the file to X - i.e. - x.mp3


I think that is the intended meaning; i.e. means id est - Latin for that is

I, for whom English is my native language, did not see the renaming correctly until robleyd pointed it out.

Sorry about the confusion about i.e. I should have been more careful and added some extra spaces

I cannot find a date stamp for the post but the link is

Embedding of mp3 audio files works fine, unless there is a "#" in the filename,

like "01-Praeludium F# Major (Bwv 882)_Auszug.mp3",

Impress issues the errormessage
"The format of the selected file is not supported"
or - in my case - the localized german
"Das Format der ausgewählten Datei wird nicht unterstützt".

Thanks for your guidance - removing the sharp of the filename resolved the problem.

Thank you for your help and support,

[Tutorial] Embedding Video into OOo Impress for Windows where rezo says
[quote="Rezo"]

There have been a lot of questions as to why the OpenOffice Impress Software cannot use Videos. The reason is that the embedded video does not actually run through Impress - you must add software to your computer in order for it to work.

Do the following:

1. Download DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer.
2. Download CCCP Codec Pack
3. Make sure 32 bit Java (Click "FREE JAVA DOWNLOAD") is installed on your PC. You may already have 64 bit Java installed. but AOO uses 32 bit Java so you must also have 32 bit Java.
4. Install DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer.
5. Install CCCP Codec Pack

Now that they are installed, insert the video. It will play.
AOO 4.1.5, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.

Thank you for your useful reply which I am sure will be appreciated by others with this problem. I solved the issue using a different route as i was working to a deadline; however, I have printed your solution and will keep it handy for the next time I want to do this.

Best regards and thanks for your help,

You dont need to download and install the DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer or 32-bit Java to get audio support working, all you have to do is install a codec bundle that has the audio codec that you need. K-Lite Codec Pack is recommended on the LibreOffice Media Support on Windows wiki.
