@Dan: Thanks Dan for updating the video with the new links. I really had some problems in running code, that I commented on this episode and the next episode proposing changing the links. I even wrote a feedback on the MSDN article. Now I think the code should run out of the box, and problems should be resolved! and it even has atom feeds, so the author name would be visible in the app when viewed in later episodes!
@BobTabor: I have a suggestion for the video encoding . In order to make the mid quality videos more readable without increasing their file size, I really suggest not to down scale the resolution ; instead decrease the frame rate. This may make motion not so clear but the text will be crystal sharp.
In fact, I tried the available mid quality , and i felt that the text is sometimes not readable, and in other times it is barely readable. Currently I have to download the high quality to have a good view .
All web links do not work , making the code throw System.Exception in mscorlib.dll at line: SyndicationFeed feed = await client.RetrieveFeedAsync(feedUri); please update web links due to switch from http://windowsteamblog.com to http://blogs.windows.com
