This is with:

$ uname -a
FreeBSD c720-r368166 13.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 13.0-CURRENT #23 r368166M: Thu Dec 17 13:12:37 CET 2020     guru at c720-r368166:/usr/obj/usr/src/amd64.amd64/sys/GENERIC  amd64

and libreoffice 7.0.3 (all ports compiled from head).

My sun needs the integration of audio files for a presentation in
school. LO claims that the audio file format (in this case .wav) is
unsupported. The Linux minded LO help forum claim that one needs to
install a lot of gstreamer1 packages, see for example here:

I've installed already the list of packages visible in the
attached below. But it still does not work and even running LO in
an xterm does not give any clue what it is missing.

Thanks for any hint.
