Basically, Base64 is a collection of related encoding designs which represent the binary information in ASCII format by converting it into a base64 representation. Base64 encoding schemes are generally used when there is a need to encode binary information that needs to be stored and transferred over media that are developed to deal with textual information. This guarantees that the data stays unchanged without modification during transfer. The specific set of characters chosen for the 64 characters needed for the base can vary among implementations. The common concept is to select a set of 64 characters that is both part of a subset typical to most encodings. This mixture leaves the data impossible to be altered in transportation thru information systems, such as electronic mail, that were typically not 8-bit clean.

Decode Base64 to file using the free online decoder, which allows you to preview files directly in the browser, as well as download them, get the hex dump for any binary data, and get summary information about the original file. Please note that the preview is available only for textual values and known media files such as images, sounds, and videos.

In any case, you can always convert Base64 to binary and download the result as file, regardless of its MIME type. If you are looking for the reverse process, check File to Base If you have any questions, remarks, need help, or just like this page, please feel free to let me know by leaving a comment using the form bellow.

Thanks again! Thank you for your detailed feedback! I am very glad that it fixed your unusual issue. I supposse than image has been saved encrypted.

Hello, Your string is a hex value. To convert it to Base64 use the Hex to Base64 converter. Next, you can preview your image using the Base64 to BMP converter.

I've tried a number of things e. Nothing was successful. Can it be a proprietary coding alphabet? Your application says it's a valid base64 string and your character encoding said that the string is binary just for my information: how do we know this?

Can I output this as xml data, if yes, how? Do you have any hint for me what I can do next? Thanks for this fantastic page! Hi, This string is unlikely to be a compressed data. Anyway, to understand what it is, you need to analyze the source code of the application and the structure of the database if you are lucky, there may be a comment describing that column.

Hi, thanks very much for your quick answer! I will try that, so maybe I'm lucky. Greetings and again: great website! Quierea descargar y guardar el archivo en Base64 y enviar en un mail gracias.

Since their signature is the same. Nuno , 18 february at Hello Nuno, The newline character 0x0A , as well as any whitespace do not interfere with decoding process and this decoder should decode such Base64 values without any problems. KC7PME , 28 february at Can you assist me? Both strings are too long to represent geographic coordinates. Therefore, if you are sure about it, I believe that the data is encrypted and you will not be able to decrypt them without knowing the algorithm and the passphrase.

Damouse , 11 march at This was sent to me thru email and was the supposed sender anybody know what it is I learned it's a base 64 octet stream from what I have gathered any thoughts.

Hi, I'm quite new here but I really do appreciate your work, that's impressive. I have a question here: I have to decode a B64 string and mostly need to know the mime type of the file from a B64 string it represents.

Trieed to find some piece of code on your site, but I found only this page. I mean, I already converted the string in a Uint8Array and copied each ChardCode in it, but what can I do exactly from here to know the mime type or the extension? Thx a lot anyway for your work. Norbert , 25 march at Hello Norbert! You should remove everything except the Base64 value for example, use the Repair Tool to extract the Base64 value.

The best solution is to use magic numbers although it gives false positives. Only direct replies to my comment. Any comments on my conversation. I love this page, so send me ALL comments.
