Download videos from Udemy for personal offline use

Project description

A Python script to download lecture videos for a course.


  • Python (2 or 3)

  • pip (Python Install Packager)

  • Python module requests

  • If missing, they will be automatically installed by pip


If you don’t have pip installed, look at their install doc. Easy install (if you trust them) is to run their bootstrap installer directly by using:

sudo curl | python


udemy-dl can be installed using pip

sudo pip install udemy-dl


Simply call udemy-dl with the full URL to the course page.


udemy-dl will ask for your udemy username (email address) and password then start downloading the videos.

By default, udemy-dl will create a subdirectory based on the course name. If you wish to have the files downloaded to a specific location, use the -o /path/to/directory/ parameter.

If you wish, you can include the username/email and password on the command line using the -u and -p parameters.

udemy-dl -u -p $ecRe7w0rd

For information about all available parameters, use the --help parameter

udemy-dl --help


udemy-dl can be uninstalled using pip

sudo pip uninstall udemy-dl

You may uninstall the required requests module too but be aware that those might be required for other Python modules.
