Last November (!) I did a Channel 9 informal chat with Jeffrey Snover, the architect of PowerShell. It was a fantastic talk, a blast for me, as Jeffrey and I can talk about whatever, forever. However there was a Perfect Storm of technical problems and two things happened:

  • The ~5min of the video were lost and only audio exists...the video starts up somewhere around 4:45. The Channel9 team did a nice thing and added a splash with a notification. Still a bummer, but nicely recovered from.
  • It was published, but was unfindable and there were problems with the stream.

However, due to some very diligent work by CharlesT and ScottO at Microsoft, the interview is now up, available and watchable (IMHO). Go check it out. You can also download it directly if you like. I don't think i'll waste your time, and you can always watch it in double speed with Windows Media Player!

Hey, Scott. Any way to get this in audio-only format so I can listen on the bus?

Thanks.

Good question...I think you can use the free Windows Media Encoder and just use the wizard to strip the audio out. Have you downloaded that?

I've heard (I think on one of Franklin's podcasts) that if you change the suffix from wmv to wma it will play only the audio stream, but I never tried it, and it will still be a bigger file then what you need.
