I have been meaning to ask if you are the person responsible for the infocobuild site? I think it is probably the best index of free lecture videos on the net. I like the way it has been set up.

If so, keep up the good work!

This contains a list of introductory physics lectures from CalTech, making complex concepts of physics more easy-to-understand by using computer graphics, drama to explain historical events etc.

This seems like a nice E&M series. (and some other stuff) They are in the ECE folder. It starts with electrostatics and culminates in a graduate level course, 740.

The prof seems very good. Very direct and clear. Maybe not as dramatic and entertaining as the Lewin MIT series, but possibly more complete and "professional". I don't prefer the format, which is "mediasite" with video and .jpg combined, but I guess it has it's benefits.

It's a PITA to download them, but it can be done... Since I know there are a lot of people who do, here is how I did it.

run a packet sniffer like "url snooper"
copy the url (it is the playback ticket)
open a program like "SDP multimedia"
paste the url in the appropriate place and "save" the .WMV file

THEN... to get the JPG's

using firefox, get the Batchdownload addon
right click in the mediasite presentation picture area and select batch download
go down to 'base url' and find the four numbers that designate the pic number and replace with the wildcard '(*)' (don't use the ' part)
Enter the range... you can see how many pics are in this particular lecture by looking at the top of the pic in the border. ( '3 of 322' , for example.)
set wildcard bytes to 4
set download folder and hit 'Start'

After all that, pour yourself a cold one, and sit back and admire yourself for your dedication to physics. Or at least to grabbing digital media on the internets.

What text are they using for that course? Jackson?
