I hope that no one have missed the great Lync jumpstart series with Rui Maximo and Brian Ricks on Technet Edge by now.
If you haven’t seen them yet you should start download them now.
The single one best thing and why I always download movies to watch from my hard drive is that I can speed it up. In Windows Media Player just hit ctrl + shift +g +g and you will watch a 1 hour webcast in like 40 minutes or something, saving you time so you can watch some more.
To save some extra time you can download all the Technet Edge Lync videos via PowerShell with a one-liner.
First download and read through Jan Egil Rings great PowerShell script from his blog.
Second fire up PowerShell and run the following from the folder where you downloaded the script to.
.\Get-WebVideoFile.ps1 -RssUrl “http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/edge/SyndicationGetTopics/cc543196.aspx?field=Category&value=Lync&ancestor=ff524487&version=MSDN.10″ –Destination “C:\TechNetEdgeLyncVideos\”
You should/could of course change the Destination path to a folder better suited for your needs.
