OpenOffice Impress doesn’t show videos on Ubuntu

After copying a presentation from my laptop to my desktop box (which’s running OpenOffice.org 3.1.1) the embedded AVI videos didn’t show up anymore. The error message: “The format of the selected file is not supported.” It turned out that the JRE was missing gstreamer.

The solution

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
