Lync Conference 2013 Sessions–Download using PowerShell



Last week the sessions from Lync Conference 2013 was made available for free to everyone, the sessions are available as mp4 video files and for most sessions, the PowerPoint is also available.

As most IT Pros, I wanted to download the sessions for offline viewing and use on my iPad.

I wanted to download the sessions as easy as possible and then the work on a PowerShell script started, which could automatically download the sessions for me. I have previously seen similar scripts for TechEd and MMS. So I adapted the script from TechEd and modified and optimized it for my use (Thanks to original credits below).

I have now published my script, so everyone hopefully can benefit from it.

The script automatically downloads videos, PowerPoints or both, from the site.

Be aware that it might take a long time to download, the full content is approx 26 GB.

Download my script here:

Current version: 1.6 (UPDATED May 16th 2013) – Fixed download bug.

Download is available on TechNet Gallery, download link above, will redirect you to TechNet Gallery. Please post comments regarding the script on this page, thx.
