Download videos from Udemy for personal offline use

Project description

A Python script to download lectures from


  • Python (2 or 3)
  • pip (Python Install Packager)
  • Python module requests
    • If missing, it's automatically installed by pip


If you don't have pip installed, look at their install doc. On Mac it's simple as just running:

brew install pip

Install udemy-dl

udemydl can be installed using pip

pip install udemydl

or you can clone the repo and install it with make

git clone
cd udemy-dl &&  make all


Simply call udemydl with the full URL to the course page.


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

By default, udemydl will create a subdirectory based on the course name (be shure that no traling / sign is uncluded). If you want to download files to a specific location, use the -o /path/to/directory/ parameter.

You can include the username/email and password on the command line using the -u and -p parameters.

udemydl -u -p $ecRe7w0rd
