PowerShell Script to download all SharePoint Conference 2014 Videos & Slides

After everyone posted about 10 script versions to download the SharePoint Conference 2014 videos I decided to add some extra value before releasing mine! This is what my script does: Downloads all the SPC14 Sessions and Slides Groups them by folders Makes sure no errors come up

    • I have been working on this script for last many days and was struck for downloading the .mp3 files. Your script helped me a lot to help people to download TechEd 2014 North America session. Thanks for your great effort

    • I would like to thank you Vlad for a worthy contribution on technet gallery. It not only helped me to download all the videos but also helped me to write two other scripts (DotNet Config 2014 videos download & SharePoint Hybyrid video series download) with little modifications. Keep sharing the good work.

    • Dear Vlad,
      Thanks for the script. It doesn't download videos. Only pptx. Any idea why this is happening? 
    • I figured out the problem with downloading mp4's.  The line has been commented out. You need to remove the hashtag from the first $a line below to get the mp4 files: 
      
      #other qualities for the videos only. Choose the one you want!
      #$a = ([xml]$rss.downloadstring("http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/SharePoint-Conference/2014/RSS/mp4")) 
      #$a = ([xml]$rss.downloadstring("http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/SharePoint-Conference/2014/RSS/mp3"))  
  • No mp4 files

  • PowerShell Script WITH FILTERs

    • Dear Vlad,
      
      Request you to alter the  PowerShell Script TO INCLUDE FILTERs So that, it will help one and all to download whatever they want instead of downloading Huge Size (70GB) 
      
      Warm Regards,

  • Error on KEV02

    • The download is still processing, the only issue I am seeing so far is a failure on KEV02--Together. I suspect that they have a bad character in the title or something. The shortcut for the session on Channel 9 is "http://video.ch9.ms/sessions/spc/2014/SCP14_Open_SPCTV_v3.mp4"
      
      Great Script!!!
  • No files downloaded?

    • Hi Vlad,
      
      I ran the script, but did encounter some error messages indicating cannot find folders.  It's still running and creating those missing folders; however, don't see the slides and mp3 under any of the folders yet?  Should I be expecting the files to be downloaded at the tail end of the script, or do I need to rerun this after it's done because of the missing folders?

    • Hi Vlad,
      
      I figured it out, I needed to create the spc14 folder first and run the script directly from there.  It's working fine, thank you very much!

    • Julie, were you able to download the videos as well? I was only able to download the ppts.
    • Hey, I just updated the script, can you please try again and confirm? Thanks!
    • Hi Vlad,
      
      Thank you for the script, I tried just now and no mp4 was downloaded into the folder as well. 
    • It worked for me like a charm 
      thanks :)

    • I am unable to download the videos and slides. I tried using Chrome and still nothing.
    • Never mind, I figured it out!
      
    • Hillary, were you able to download the videos as well? I was only able to download the ppts.
    • Hey, I just updated the script, can you please try again and confirm? Thanks!
    • If you get an error like below
      Exception calling "DownloadString" with "1" argument(s): "The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized."
      
      Add the credentials to the webclient object as below
      $rss.Credentials = new-object System.Net.NetworkCredential ("username", "password", "domain")

    • Hello,
      
      I am trying to dowload behind a proxy server, but I cant... Is there a way to do it?
      
      Thanks
    • Replace
      $wc = (New-Object System.Net.WebClient)
      
      By this
      
      $proxy = [System.Net.WebRequest]::GetSystemWebProxy()
      $proxy.Credentials = [System.Net.CredentialCache]::DefaultCredentials
      $wc = (New-Object System.Net.WebClient)
      $wc.proxy = $proxy
      
      
      Make sure you do it for both PowerPoints AND mp4!
