Hi Joel,

Yes i've had success in Xubuntu 14.04 and Linux Mint 17 after tracking
down the necessary packages as mentioned in fdo#79468, as i was having
problems with MKVs crashing LibO in Linux Mint 13. I did some testing on
windows 7 and some formats worked (mpg, ogv, mp4, webm), while others
didnt (avi, mkv). As i dont know how its being played on windows, i dont
know how to remedy the issue.
