You should still be able to get at the videos themselves by inspecting
the page contents, looking for download links like this one:

http://blip.tv/file/get/Pycon-PyCon2010UsingPythonToCreateRoboticSimulationsForPlaneta894.ogv

In this case, it's an Ogg Theora video file, so you may want to use
a player like VLC to view it:
