Dan, the reason I use VLC for these is because it can create a playlist from an RSS feed. Windows Media Player doesn't do that. Also, while Windows Media Player does have high speed playback, it's a little trickier to get to if you want to control the playback speed more than the preset 1.4x "Fast" speed - right-click, enhancements, play speed brings up a floating window with slider. VLC has a handy shortcut - ] is 10% faster, [ is 10% slower.
Those tips are listed in no real order, I've been using the HTML5 playback speed in the browser pretty often, too. So many good videos to catch up on!
Code should be posted in the next day or two. The Consensus app (Angular + SignalR) is available here: https://github.com/nberardi/consensus (requires a few NuGet package updates). Sorry for the delay, been really swamped returning from Build.
@Andy - Thanks for adding the link to the comment thread. Sorry if you felt it was unattributed, we did mention the project by name and there were not slides shown during this part. I didn't have the github repo URL memorized.
The Fall 2012 Update supports Visual Studio Express 2012 for Web (see release notes) so you should see them. The new templates we showed (Facebook, Single Page Application) are for ASP.NET MVC 4 projects in C# for this preview release, so make sure that's where you're looking.
Thanks for the aspConf shoutout. We have all the sessions filmed in Channel 9 studio online of course, bue are still getting videos from remote presenters, getting them edited, etc. We have 30 online now, more going up every day.
Also thanks to the other conference organizers (Eric Hexter and Javier Lozano) and our volunteer staff.
Thanks for the mvcConf shoutout - and for all the great support in Channel 9 studios!
By the way - all sessions, including the Live Meeting sessions, are being posted on Channel 9. I think all but a couple are already live by now at the link you posted - http://channel9.msdn.com/Series/mvcConf
