Lang.NET Symposium videos are up - in WMV

The Lang.NET symposium videos are up, but the user interface over there is pushing Silverlight. The videos are actually in WMV format. The URLs are hidden in StartPlayer.js. If you want to avoid having to install Silverlight, these urls should do (mind the spaces):

You didn't read it here :)

Edit: As nbrooks commented, you'll need to install the WVC1 codec to view the videos (if you haven't actually installed Silverlight). You can get it here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942423

Note if you are on Windows XP you'll need to install WVC1 codec to watch them (well the ones I wanted to watch required it).

It's not so much that I want to avoid installing Silverlight; it's that Silverlight won't install at all on my work machine....

Apparently they don't really appreciate direct links to the WMV files so it looks like you need to go via the Silverlight player on the site to view the videos.
