How does Open Office Impress play sound from a PowerPoint presentation?

I just installed OO Impress so that I could convert a PowerPoint with sound to a Flash movie.  I found the option to convert to Flash SWF format, but can not get OO Impress to play the sound annotations which I had recorded into Power Point.

Can anyone please tell me how to get Impress toplay sound?  On each screen I see a sound icon, so I think it has converted the sound files okay.  But when I hit F5 the sound is not there.  And when I convert SWF the sound is also not there.

Can anybody help?

thanks,

Also, how do I get the Flash file to play by showing one screen after the next?

Also, when I convert Power Point to Flash with Impress a few images get ruined.  What file format whould I switch them to so I can make the conversion and have it go nicely.

I'm curious, how come you didn't convert your AVI file to SWF with the SWF Producer from CAMStudio?  I think that would have been the best way to go.

Thanks for the trick.  It is a better solution.  But i am having a problem making either SWF file play.  It's greater than 16,000 frames and makes multiple files.  But on playback, the screen goes red, but the audio continues.

Do you have any idea how to stop this?

Sound like you need to adjust your settings, either for recording the PPT to AVI or converting the AVI to SWF.
