Publishing powerpoint slides on youtube

It took me quite a few hours to figure out how to publish powerpoint slides on youtube. Finally, I picked up following approach for doing it. Not sure this is the best one but it has worked for me for the time being.
  1. Save PPTs into PNG images. PowerPoint will save all slides as images in a folder.
  2. Use Windows Movie Maker (freely available with Windows XP) to convert these images into WMV video file.
  3. Upload WMV file on youtube.
Right now used default settings of Windows Movie Maker. Yet to figure out how to control things such as timing of slide transition.

BTW my youtube channel is at http://www.youtube.com/user/shrikantnmulik.
