Indavideo downloader script
PHP JavaScript CSS
Latest commit b6d76d3 Jan 3, 2017 nXu Better metea tags


A very simple and lightweight Indavideo downloader service written in PHP. Needs cURL to be allowed and configured properly (will not run on most free webhosts).


  1. Send a GET request to downloader.php with one parameter, url.
  2. The response is a JSON encoded object with the following format:

In case of error (please bear with me, error messages are in Hungarian):

  'success': false, 
  'message': 'Error message'

If successful:

  'success'  : true,
  'video_url': 'http://video.url'

  • Add file token to the retrieved URL to avoid 403 errors


  • Now automatically adds http:// to the URL if not already set
  • Better pattern for validaint URLs (no more need to strip query strings)
  • Download is now triggered with an ENTER keypress
  • Updated user agent
  • Updated CURL code
  • Added back button
  • Renamed main script do downloader.php
