One thing that was different after VMworld 2016 is that all recordings were available to the public, whether you had paid for the conference or not. This is honestly a great move by VMware - knowledge is useful only if shared, and there are so many VMware admins that don't get to do the trip.
I wanted to highlight two ways to get the recordings - great if you want to just see one, just to download a few, or if you want it all.
The source is by the great and only William Lam, who figured out the playback and direct download URLs:
The other is thanks to Wojciech Marusiak who downloaded them and created torrents:
Go and grab them, and may they make you a better VMware administrator!
