While premium members is permitted to watch any videos without limit. Since many people wish to download Lynda for studying and watching conveniently, Video Grabber had added this site to supported download list.

    Before some video names, you will see the key-shaped icon. It means that the videos are only can be downloaded after signing to Lynda. Then, click the link to logging and download videos to computer. At last, I should say we have just improved this function, so is still in beta. Perhaps it is not very stable, then please try several times more or try again later.

    I am getting the “locked” icons near the videos on the right. I click on the login to lynda link, enter my password, then it just goes to the main page of lynda meanwhile the videograbber page remains locked. This process repeats every time I try and login to lynda.

    Any help?

    I tried to batch download via the trial product. I had to click evaluate for each video which I assume is because I was using a trial version of the program. I was ultimately able to download all of the videos, but there was a problem. There was a video completely unrelated to the course I was downloading that was downloaded multiple times in place of many of the videos that were part of the course I was trying to download.
