Script to Download All the TechEd Europe 2014 Videos and Slides


This is my script to download All the TechEd Europe 2014 Videos and Slides, when they become available on Channel9.

Microsoft usually publish all TechEd Conference sessions, so they are available for everyone online on Channel9.

I have tweaked and updated my previous download scripts from TechEd North America 2014, LyncConf and MEC 2014 download, so I will now download session content (Videos or PowerPoints) for TechEd Europe 2014. (The original script credit goes to Vlad Catrinescu, who made a script for the SharePoint Conference 2014).

My script will now download all videos and slides (pptx) from TechEd Europe 2014, here is what the script does:

  • Downloads all the TechEd Europe 2014 Sessions and Slides and save them to c:temp
  • Groups them by folders
  • 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.

New features for this version:

  • Option to choose to download only Videos or PowerPoints or Both
  • Option to choose to video quality (low or high)
  • Option to enter download location (default c:TEE14)
  • Download Progress Bar

I have made the script available on TechNet Gallery, download link below will redirect your to the script on TechNet Gallery. Download my script here (redirect to TechNet Gallery):

  1. Hi there, first of all a big thanks for this script, it just works wonders…..

    I have one question/feedback/comment though: is it normal for this script to eat up so much memory? on one of my file servers (WS2012R2) i ran it to download both pptx and hi-res videos (all of them) and had to stop it after few hoours because it was getting up to 80% of the 12Gigs of RAM. I re-ran it today, it’s been running for 2 hours now and is already at 61% of the ram available on server. Else from that odd memory behavior it is just a must have!!!

    Thanks again for this script, and best regards from France!
