Allow an uploaded PDF or PPT to be a secondary stream - allowing the video to be the primary stream

When I upload a PDF I would love the ability to choose if it is the primary or secondary stream. Currently it creates it as the primary and you cannot change it- which means it is on the 'big screen.' Rather I would like the PDF to be presented in the upper left corner. However, I want to retain the ability to download the PDF from the Panopto video - that feature is great.

Related to this - I would love if the ability to designate the PowerPoint slides as secondary (so they display in the upper left right when you play the video). Currently the PowerPoint slides will play on the 'big screen' - at least with PowerPoint slides, the viewer does have the ability to switch the screens themselves.

So to recap, I am requesting more control on the designation of streams (Primary and secondary). See my attached image.

    Oh yea, and allow me to designate when the PDF appears in the video would also be a benefit.
