Response to your Q1.
I have used PPT Producer and, while I found it easy to use, I felt it took up a lot of bandwidth etc. It was a probably a good answer at the time (2003). Since then I have used a product called CAMTASIA, now rev 5 I think – and not free – and I found it easy to use and loaded on customer computers much faster.
The other thing you can do is to record your PPT slides using a screen recorder, on PC I use WME9 (free!). I recommend a small screen resolution and don’t add audio – leave that for the program you render out in. WME9 will make videos of your slides but is NOT good with fade and disolve transitions.
And yet another alternative is to make your PPT slide show, save screen prints of each slide in a graphics program, and build the slide show in video program.
I have a PPT producer slide show at http://www.bmidd.com/samples/ppp/ttexcerpt.htm. I have no trouble viewing it (other than it takes FOREVER to load) but you may wish to see if it works for you – maybe there is some tweaking you need to do to your web browser.
