    • Hello Michel,
      
      Thank you for the script, please note that Ignite 2016 is not working yet (V.193).
      Videos + Slides.
      
      Thanks,
      -Charbel
    • Microsoft didn't publish Ignite contents on Channel 9 (yet, if ever)
      So, use this script which will download ppt/mp4s, scraping the ignite community portal

    • Doesn't work for Technical Summit 2015 or Ignite 2016. It's failing to build the listbox for Categories and Speakers.
      
      Looking at the Technical Summit 2015, neither the dc:creator or category properties are being utilized, so you're pulling back a nul result and it's dying when you try to load-listbox in line 629.  One RSS entry populated the dc:creator, so that listbox only has a single item.  Also your RSS url should probably be "http://s.ch9.ms/Events/microsoft-techncial-summit/Technical-Summit-2015-The-Next-Level/RSS/mp4high".
      
      I think Ignite 2016 hasn't posted any files, yet.
      
      
    • Ignite2016 on-demand videos are put here https://myignite.microsoft.com/videos
      Expect the downloadable videos and decks to be on ch9 at a later date/time.
      That feed was down indeed - removed (not there anymore), added few others (eg AzureCon'15).

    • I am also seeing the failure which in PS shows as:

    • It seem that this year is MS using Youtube for video on demand. Look https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrhJmfAGQ5K81XQ8_od1iTg/videos

    • Not having much luck running the script, log showing 301 response. Has anyone run this recently ? 
  • Download by day

    • Hi,
      
      Thanks for the script! :-)
      
      Is it possible to sort and download the sessions by conference day?
      My SSD drive cannot hold all sessions, but I should be able to store a day at the time.

  • Not a question.

    • Just noticed you spelt 'videos' as 'vidoes' on the title bar for the main form.  Thought you'd like to know.  J
    • Thanks
  • Pause and Overwrite or Skip?
    2 Posts | Last post May 11, 2015
    • Two questions:
      
      - a way to pause downloads and
      - if interrupted or you need to start over, will it overwrite or skip previously downloaded videos and slide decks?
      
      Nice product!
    • No, but you can abort (kill) and it will skip files already present in download location
  • Forbidden error?

    • Michel - Do you get this error now?
      
      Exception calling "GetResponse" with "0" argument(s): "The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden."
          + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [], MethodInvocationException
          + FullyQualifiedErrorId : WebException
          + PSComputerName        : localhost
    • No, downloading (updating) as we speak with latest additions.
  • What quality are these? HD? SD?
    2 Posts | Last post May 09, 2015
    • If they are SD is there a way to get the highest quality?
    • It uses the feed for HQ videos. If you don't want that for some reason (total amount of space needs is quite big), remove 'high' from the RSS feeds URLs in the source.
