Download all the PowerShell summit videos…with PowerShell

This is just a rehash of a previous post of using YoutubeDL to parse playlists and download stuff, but here is doing it to download the European PowerShell Summit Videos.

$url = ""

$playlisturl = $url

$VideoUrls= (invoke-WebRequest -uri $Playlisturl).Links | ? {$_.HREF -like "/watch*"} |  `
? innerText -notmatch ".[0-9]:[0-9]." | ? {$_.innerText.Length -gt 3} | Select innerText, `
@{Name="URL";Expression={'' + $_.href}} | ? innerText -notlike "*Play all*" | ? innerText -notlike "*Play*"

ForEach ($video in $VideoUrls){
    Write-Host ("Downloading " + $video.innerText)
    .\youtube-dl.exe $video.URL
