How to Download Udemy Videos

Last updated: May 5, 2017 - 5:44pm EDT

Can I download videos from Udemy?

You can download lecture videos from Udemy as long as the course instructor has made them available as supplementary materials.  Note, however, that some instructors may not necessarily make them available in video format.  You may have to settle for PDF documents, presentation slides, or audio files.

Also note that some course instructors may not allow downloading of videos or supplementary course materials at all.  However, if you wish, you can contact them and request that they change their policy, or at least make an exception (though we can't promise anything).  For a help article describing how to get in contact with your course instructor, click here.

How to download videos from Udemy

If you need help with this step, see steps 1 and 2 in our How to Take a Udemy Course tutorial.

2. Search for a course to take, and enroll in it.

If you need help with this step, see steps 3 through 5 in our How to Take a Udemy Course tutorial.

3. Begin viewing a lecture in the course that you enrolled in.

The lectures (and other major course materials) are usually on the left side of the course dashboard.  The one highlighted in grey at the top is the lecture that you watched last.  Click on a lecture to start watching it.

4. In the right-hand pane, click the "Downloads" tab.

The Downloads tab looks like an arrow pressing into a rectangle.  If you can't see the right-hand pane, try clicking the arrow in the top-right corner of the lecture interface.  Or, if you see the View Resources button, you can click that instead.

5. Click on the material that you wish to download, and follow the prompts.

Just click on one of the supplementary course materials to start the standard download prompts: choose to open the file or save it, and (assuming that you choose to save the file) where on your computer you want to save it.
