Heya! First of, lets get something right.. the title for this article has got close to zero(0) correlation with the article itself. The only relation between the two is *Udemy*(But that’s not how it works. Your title is supposed to send a message across … ) Yeah yeah.. spare me all the “article writing protocol crap” ..
wontumi ny3 me foko 😆
In this article, I write about my latest script and how to use it.
Warning : I copied almost 80% of the code in there from Nishad.
So i wrote this script as a result of the stress i go through whiles downloading courses from Udemy(the best online educator imo). I mean, to download a course video, you need to fetch the url to video from the browser and feed it to any video downloader of your choice. This might not be much of a problem if you’re downloading only 5 videos.. The real problem arises when you sign up for course with about 120 videos.. yup.
while videos-downloaded != (course-videos):
copy().from(browser) and paste().into(video_downloader)
*keep calm and copy* (whatever programming language that is)
Honestly, i found a program that does something similar to mine, but the truth is, it wasn’t working.. *argue with my computer*
Basically, it fetches data from Udemy’s API and builds download links using the data collected.. (roughly 160 lines) . After building the download links, it then saves them in a text file in your current working directory.
How to use it.
1. You provide it with the name of the course.. (Eg. “ 30 days of python”)
2. Your Email (*for authentication )
3. Your Password(*for authentication and oh, its not going to share your login credentials.. you can confirm for yourself)
ah!!, so you actually wanted me to show my password .. ?? *sighs*
Yup, that’s all ..The whole process should last less than 3 seconds(terms and conditions apply ) . Your links will be dumped in a text file(last line in the image above!!!!)
beautiful ain’t it? ❤️ (i was referring to automation..its a very beautiful process)

Till i decide to automate copying and pasting from StackOverflow, …. Adios!!!
