Recording of this webinarMar 23, 2012

Me too, I had subscribed to this webinar but I wasn't able to log in and attend it in the end.
I have already opened a support ticket but they give me a 7 min video of last year.

Is it possible to have the recorded video of THIS webinar? They didn't send me it by email as it happened for the other webinars I have attended up to now.
