Any video uploaded direct to Kajabi can be easily downloaded
Let’s start this article off one just a quick fact. If you upload direct to Kajabi then any number of browser plugins or extenstions will be able to piratee your content.
The only way to protect your video is if you use a video hosting provide (guess who) that encrypts your videos and protects against those downloads.
If you’re a course creator looking to protect your video content then are certain things to be aware of if you are going to use Kajabi.
What Is Kajabi Used For?
You’re probably already aware of this, but just in case you’re new to LMS systems…
Kajabi is an all-in-one platform that allows users to create, market, and sell online courses and digital products. It’s a popular solution among online course creators because it offers lots of tools, all under one roof, that they may need to launch and grow their business.
Are You The Course Creator? Here’s How to Download Your Own Videos from Kajabi
If you’re a course creator and trying to figure out how to download your own videos, you’re now in the right spot.
If you have uploaded your videos directly via the Kajabi interface then you can still access them if you need to. Unfortunately, there is no built-in way to automatically download all videos from Kajabi. You will be able to access (and download) single videos back onto your drive.

Are You The Student? Downloading Videos from Kajabi as a Student
Yes, as a student or visitor it’s possible to download videos that are uploaded directly to Kajabi. It’s just as easy as downloading Youtube videos. There are many sources online pointing to how to use various browser extensions and ‘video downloader’ plugins to download videos from Kajabi (as well as other course platforms and video platforms). We won’t be covering any of that. Unless you get the course creator’s permission, it’s not ethical.
Though, we do understand you might need to view the content offline. This is a valid concern, though you might not have a good solution for this.
At the moment, Kajabi does not offer an “offline view” download option for students enrolled in courses to save videos. They might take notes from other platforms that do allow it so they can watch the content offline. But at the moment there’s no way to get any lesson video download for viewing offline.
Depending on how each course is structured, course creators may make other downloadable content accessible by students offline. These are usually course notes and homework the educator has chosen to incorporate in their course — not the actual videos making up the course.
But again, if you choose to download the content without the authors permission this is definitely unethical.
How Course Creators Protect Video Courses On Kajabi
To protect your course content you will want to use a video hosting provider that encrypts the videos that are uploaded. Kajabi does partner with a 3rd party hosting provider (Wistia) however they do not encrypt their videos. They can be easily downloaded using any number of browser extensions and plugins. If you’ve ever tried to download youtube videos then you know how easy it can be if the video isn’t protected.
Here at Spotlightr we encrypt all content that is uploaded to us by default (you can also turn that off if you don’t want it encrypted). Preventing users from downloading video files and video content security is one of our top priorities, so we are always looking for ways to improve that piece of our service.
Videos uploaded to Spotlightr are encrypted by default. Browser extensions and plugins will not work and will not be able to download any working files.
Once you upload your videos to Spotlightr, you can add them to your Kajabi lessons by using the Kajabi “video embed” or “custom code” blocks in their page builder. It’s as easy as that to protect your valuable video content.
