BigBlueButton - Change the default presentation

The default presentation is loaded by default in BigBlueButton. It makes up the majority of the BigBlueButton branding. Many of our clients want to change these presentations to their own PDF or PowerPoint presentations. Changing the default presentation is as easy as uploading a file.
