Integrate our file converter tools in your website

Welcome to the developer area of online-convert.com. We have developed three tools for you to easily integrate our online file converter on your webpage using our free service. If you have a webpage and want to provide a convenient service for your users to convert a file available in the Internet by clicking on a link on your webpage, then feel free to use the following tools.

1. Convert a file to a specific format with the possibility to choose conversion settings

With this option you send your user to our page with the URL he wants to convert. The user has the option to select settings, but can't change the target file format.

To enable this feature, put a link similar to the following one on your webpage. The GET parameter external_url contains the URL you want to have converted. Note: the GET parameter external_url needs to be urlencoded.

Example: Convert our file to AVI

This example makes use of further parameters to preselect options. We have added "&width=320&height=240" to the link to preset the size of the video to 320x240 pixel. You can prefill all options you find in the HTML source code of the converter you want to choose.

2. Convert a file using specific settings with the possibility to choose the target format

With this option you send your user to our page with the URL he wants to convert. The user has the option to select the target file format, but he can't select further conversion settings.

To enable this feature, put a link similar to the following one on your webpage. The GET parameter external_url contains the URL you want to have converted. Note: the GET parameter external_url needs to be urlencoded.
