SharePointHybridCourseware

The attached script has the following key features

  • Downloads all the SharePoint Hybrid Courseware video series
  • Makes sure no errors come up due to Illegal File names.
  • If you stop the script and restart in the middle, it will start where it left off and not from beginning.

In this script I have added High MP4 videos to download which are larger in size and to download small size videos, you just need to change the variable values in the attached file.

# SharePoint Conference 2014 Videos
$a = ([xml]$rss.downloadstring(“http://channel9.msdn.com/series/SharePoint-Hybrid-Courseware-and-Curriculum/RSS/mp4high”))

#other qualities for the videos only. Choose the one you want!
# $a = ([xml]$rss.downloadstring(“http://channel9.msdn.com/series/SharePoint-Hybrid-Courseware-and-Curriculum/RSS/mp4”))
#$a = ([xml]$rss.downloadstring(“http://channel9.msdn.com/series/SharePoint-Hybrid-Courseware-and-Curriculum/RSS/mp3”))

Just add # sign before variable $a, as shown in above code (it will add it as comment) and then remove the # sign from any of the commented code. Just shown below.

# SharePoint Conference 2014 Videos
#$a = ([xml]$rss.downloadstring(“http://channel9.msdn.com/series/SharePoint-Hybrid-Courseware-and-Curriculum/RSS/mp4high”))

#other qualities for the videos only. Choose the one you want!
# $a = ([xml]$rss.downloadstring(“http://channel9.msdn.com/series/SharePoint-Hybrid-Courseware-and-Curriculum/RSS/mp4”))
$a = ([xml]$rss.downloadstring(“http://channel9.msdn.com/series/SharePoint-Hybrid-Courseware-and-Curriculum/RSS/mp3”))

Total Video Size:

The videos are not too large in length which make them easier to watch, total video size is 520 MB
Now run the script, and you will be able to download all videos of SharePoint Hybrid Courseware and Curriculum series.
