      The zune version is actually there already.  Just take the url (when you click "Download" and change the "2MB" to "Zune".  You get this:

      We will expose the different file formats we have in a future version of Channel 9, but for now you can access them by following this pattern:

      const string videoFileFormat = "{0}{1}_ch9.{2}";
      string rootPath = ""; // Change this to any recent video's root path

      string wmvStreaming = string.Format(videoFileFormat, rootPath, "_s", "wmv");
      string wmv = string.Format(videoFileFormat, rootPath, "", "wmv");
      string wmvHigh = string.Format(videoFileFormat, rootPath, "_2MB", "wmv");
      string wma = string.Format(videoFileFormat, rootPath, "", "wma");
      string mp3 = string.Format(videoFileFormat, rootPath, "", "mp3");
      string zune = string.Format(videoFileFormat, rootPath, "_Zune", "wmv");
      string iPod = string.Format(videoFileFormat, rootPath, "", "mp4");
      string psp = string.Format(videoFileFormat, rootPath, "", "mp4");

      It's a ska band called OPC which my friends had in college. They are no longer playing together and were never signed - it was just something they did for fun - so unfortunately you won't be able to see them or buy their CD. But they have given us royalty free permission to use their music in the shows we produce, so the price is right (not to mention I love their stuff!).

    • tereska
      yeah! That intro music is hot Smiley Any chance to hear the whole one?
