Mate, if you know the easy working method, if you really want to help then spit it out here, he’s not the only one who needs the solution, so better help with correct direction instead of referring others to send you a PM, not everyone can use PM feature, make yourself useful to everyone. thanks for reading :slight_smile:

Thanks @SaM

Step 1: Make sure your computer has installed Python 3.7, if not you can’t install via https://www.python.org/downloads/
After installed, Open CMD or Terminal and type `

python3 --version

If you receive a message

python 3.7.4

then go to Step 2

Step 2: Continue to use CMD or Terminal to install 2 dependencies

  • pip3 install python-slugify
  • pip3 install requests

Step 3: Extract the .zip folder and open CMD or Terminal

Step 4: Type some magic code

python3 dl.py skillshare_url

Ex: python3 dl.py https://www.skillshare.com/classes/Character-Animation-Creating-Authentic-Facial-Expressions-in-Adobe-After-Effects/678578570

Ok, now wait and magic will happen, all video will be downloaded in the data folder.

Did you change your directory to that folder by using “cd” command ?

go to that directory after u downloaded python latest version.
after opening the terminal navigate to the directory where u kept ur dl.py and skillshare.py
by using cd (change directory command)
for instance if u kept ur skillshare downloader files in Downloads folder use

cd Dowloads
cd skillshare downloader
now type that commad python dl.py url-for-course

u need to first download the skillshare files (skillshare.py and dl.py) from this link and I found from that screenshot that ur python version is 3.7.0 which is not compatible kindly uninstall it and reinstall it with 3.7.4 (latest version after 3.7+) as mentioned in the post. or follow any youtube video procedure if u aren’t familiar with.

after that go to the folder where u have downloaded skillshare files and execute that command.

Hey, guys. I did everything based on the given instructions. But always there is an error result:
Please, help me!

course_url = sys.argv[1]
IndexError: list index out of range.

Looks like you didn’t call the script with the course url.
The correct call looks like this:
python dl.py https://www.skillshare.com/classes/Learn-OAuth-to-access-Google-GMail-API/360113903
