Options for "automatically" switching between video sharing and screen sharing.

We do a lot of powerpoint/keynote presentations - and with those presentations we use the video sharing option to stream videos (as they look better than trying to stream them from within powerpoint/keynote).  

Is there an option where we could be sharing our presentation (powerpoint/keynote) from one computer - use another to stream the video, then hand control back to the other computer with the presentation and have the presentation automatically shared again?

Today when we share the video it "pauses" the shared desktop that is showing the presentation (makes sense).  But for the presentation to be shown again, they need to go back to bluejeans and "reshare" the presentation, then go back and start the slideshow again, which can be distracting for the presenter.

Just curious if this can be done another way or could be a future feature request.

We are also looking for an easier way to do this. right now we have a "facilitator" that essentially moderates the meeting, i.e. uses the Mute functions and "pin to" options in the layouts, this allows for the video stream and presentation stream to be present - which allows the viewer to see what they want but allows the facilitator to "pin" the presentation or the video feed as the active feed when required,
