This morning i was playing with Zune (software) and remembered the Podcast section. So i decide to give a try to see if it would work with video. And the answers is YES. So here is the walkthrough to do so.
First make sure you have Zune open and go in your “Collection” and select “Podcasts”:
Now you can go on the Channel 9 website in the section dedicated to BUILD : http://channel9.msdn.com/events/BUILD/BUILD2011
In the page there a link called Subscribe to this event:
When you do a mouse over a context menu will show up:
So now you can do a right click and select “Copy shortcut”
or use any of the link below:
and now you can go back in Zune and click on the “ADD A PODCAST” button
Past any of the feed you want and click on the “SUBSCRIBE” button:
So now Zune will download the feed and display the available show. You can now click on the Download button of any show that you want. By default, Zune will automatically try to download the first 3 video. So you can access the “Series Settings” so you will be able to configure how Zune will handle this series.
After that you can now watch the videos in Zune or if you prefer you can sync the video to your Windows Phone 7 by right click on the video that you want to sync and click “Sync with …”
Enjoy watching the BUILD sessions offline, and get ready for the future of Windows.
The latest version (4.7) of the Zune software have been made available very quietly. The software now support the new Windows Phone 7. Zune is the software which will handle the connectivity with the computer. You’ll be able to manage your phone, buy some software or games, sync your music and video.
Now there is a Marketplace we can see the available software and games for the Windows Phone. You can download using this link: http://www.zune.net/en-CA/products/software/download/default.htm
