Automated download of VMworld sessions

Attendees of VMworld and vExperts can view the recorded VMworld US breakout sessions and the PowerPoint slides in PDF format. Downloading each and every session you are interested in can be a very time consuming operation.

PowerShell to the rescue. Stu Radnidge created the first script in 2010. Since then, it’s been modified by Alan Renouf, André Pett, Brent Quick, and Damian Karlson.

The script allows you to select one or all tracks and filetypes (MP3,MP4, PDF etc). The MP3 is the audiotrack only obviously.

You just have to fill in username and password and set $download=$true . Then choice if you want MP4,MP3 and PDF in one go or just one of those three types.

More information and download of script here.
