The availability to download Udemy courses to PC mainly depends on the authorization of the video instructors, which is inaccessible most of the time. If the video course instructor allows downloading the videos, you can download your inclined videos by hitting the option – Download lecture.

It will appear when you move your cursor to the gear icon at the bottom right of the video interface. Then click Download lecture to download the video courses offline. Until now, as I mentioned, most of the videos are not allowed to download to the computer, which is the Udemy official solution that should be blamed for.
