    The zune version is actually there already.  Just take the url (when you click "Download" and change the "2MB" to "Zune".  You get this: http://mschnlnine.vo.llnwd.net/d1/ch9/0/ThisWeekC9Mar20_Zune_ch9.wmv

    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 = "http://mschnlnine.vo.llnwd.net/d1/ch9/0/ThisWeekC9Mar20"; // 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");

    Mighty cool. For extra-coolness [z-E-E-ma] should be pronounced [z-ee-m-A-A-h](which means wintEr in quite a few Slavic languages)Tongue Out

    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!).
