I also feel that while it is nice to have (and I AM working on it) 
..... the video itself is not particularly interesting ......

What I think would make better reference/teaching material would be 
SMILs that play the Slides + any notes sync'd to the Audio tracks.

You would have much more chance of actually reading the slides, and 
bandwidth would be MUCH lower ...... the only thing you would miss is 
the laser pointer ...... and our handsome mugs ;)
