There is a link to add the course to your iTunes library, top right? Of the course page.

I have developed a little web app where you can insert your token and you can download videos from teamtreehouse http://jonathanobino.16mb.com/treehouse/

How are you getting the list of videos? Are you going to open source the code and put it up on github perhaps?

I get the itunes link, replace the itpc with htth and vuala, I get the links, no magic. Right now I don't think to put this simple code on github. Anyway I've updated the form to use post method instead of get.

Please help me to find itunes link of a course, I don't find any link on users dashboard.

HI all, I Signup for the trail version for TreeHouse. From where i get my unique token to download all videos. Thanks in Advance.

just right click while the video is playing and click the save as button.

I've created an application that does just this. Without the need of iTunes. It will create all the folders for you and number all the video's so you can watch them in the correct order. The only thing you need is nodejs. Check it out: https://github.com/MakhouT/treehouseDownloader

It's now possible to download a full track :) https://github.com/MakhouT/treehouseDownloader

The easiest thing to do if you do not or can not use itunes is to go to the video you want right click on the page and go down to view page source then when page source opens do ctrl f to find and type videos. make sure you include the . (dot) and it'll show you a link https://videos.teamtreehouse.com/videos/........ click on that link it'll be a stright link to video where you can right click to download. This has been tested in chrome and works well.

What is this link tommy, are you kidding?

WHERE I get the tokens??? I don't see any iTunes library in the courses. I have $25 account.

Open a course page

Scroll to the bottom (on mobile)

For example

C# Objects

https://teamtreehouse.com/library/c-objects

Find the section

β€œDownload videos

Download all the videos from this collection using iTunes. Continue watching videos even when an internet connection is unavailable.”

Click on the β€œiTunes Feed” button

itpc://teamtreehouse.com/library/c-objects.rss?feed_token=###

β€œ###” will have your feed token, don’t show anybody this

If you change β€œitpc://” to β€œfeed://” it will open in Podcasts apps instead
