I tried to create a slide show presentation with music in OO, but found 
out that it would play music as long as the first slide was on the 
screen, and when you go to the next slide the music stops. Maybe I 
wasn't doing it right, and someone else knows how to get it to work. I 
don't use OO much as I have no use for documents of the type it creates, 
other than once in a great while making a slide show, so I can't help 
with the question, sorry.

If it is possible I would be interested in seeing how.
