I added a sound from the gallery and now I cannot close the integrated media player. I guess it's a bug but how can I close it anyway? The small window doesnt have window decorators.

Go to the Tools menu, and click Gallery Player. This toggles the player visibility.

I don't know why it's undecorated for you. Might be a Unity/Compiz quirk (I only use Compiz and it's decorated). You should file a bug.

On Libre Office 3.6.3.2 I finally figured out you can look for the double headed arrow at edge of media player and grab it, pull to left edge of work space.

A marker grip appears so you can find and open it in the future - BUT IT IS NO LONGER taking 1/3 of the display area and is out of the way! This is acceptable! Good Luck

This problem is a known bug, so you are not alone. The above solution did not work for me. Here is what did.

To close the Media Player of Libre Office Writer:

  1. On the bottom area of the Media Player pane click and hold on a part of the gray area where there are no buttons.

  2. Drag the pane to the middle of the main document window.

  3. The pane now becomes a floating window.

  4. Click on the red "x" to close the window.

To transform the floating window back into a pane, drag it back to any side of the main document window.

Do you have a link to the bug? That would make this answer much more useful! –  Jorge Castro Dec 19 '11 at 23:58
