I think you have to submit the notebook to Wolfram to have them turn  
it into a .nbp file. The process is quick and automatic.

As far as I can tell, the player acts as the old Reader did with .nb  
files. That is, it formats the text and graphics (and may play old- 
style animations -- I haven't checked), but will not allow input or  
dynamic content.

If you think of the player as 1) a replacement for the old reader that  
displayed non-dynamic content and 2) as a means to show Demonstrations  
-- but only in .nbp files, then you should have a pretty good idea  
what you can and can't do.
