I have a short movie that I imported into a libreoffice presentation. I wanted a copy of that movie back, but I couldn’t figure out how to extract a copy. In desperation, I figured I’d try opening the file with file-roller, the GNOME archive manager.
james@computer:/tmp$ file mgmt-berlin-osdc-17may2017.odp mgmt-berlin-osdc-17may2017.odp: OpenDocument Presentation james@computer:/tmp$ mkdir out james@computer:/tmp$ file-roller -f mgmt-berlin-osdc-17may2017.odp -e out/ [snip] james@computer:/tmp$ cd out/ james@computer:/tmp/out$ ls Configurations2/ Media/ meta.xml Pictures/ styles.xml content.xml META-INF/ mimetype settings.xml Thumbnails/ james@computer:/tmp/out$
To my amazement, this worked perfectly! I found my video in the Media/ folder, and out it came! You can do this entirely with the GUI if you prefer:
As you can assume, pictures are also available. I haven’t cared to dig much further, but hopefully you enjoyed this tip!
