All sessions of the SharePoint Conference 2014 have been posted already on Channel 9! If you plan to watch a lot or even all of them, here’s a little PowerShell script that will help to download them. The original is from 2012 and was created by Vlad Catrinescu, with some very minor modifications (basically added one [xml] and changed the RSS feed) it’s also working this. year.

[Environment]::CurrentDirectory=(Get-Location -PSProvider FileSystem).ProviderPath
$rss = (new-object net.webclient)

$a = [xml]($rss.downloadstring("http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/SharePoint-Conference/2014/RSS/mp4high"))

$a.rss.channel.item | foreach{
 $code = $_.comments.split("/") | select -last 1

 $url = New-Object System.Uri($_.enclosure.url)

 $file = $code + "-" + $_.creator + "-" + $_.title.Replace(":", "-").Replace("?", "").Replace("/", "-").Replace("<", "") + ".mp4"

 if (!(test-path $file))
 {
    $file
    $wc = (New-Object System.Net.WebClient)
    $wc.DownloadFile($url, $file)
 }
}
