Base 64 Decoder
This form below allows you to decode Base64-encoded text strings. Its
pretty simple to use - just paste in the Base64 text you want to decode and
then press the Decode button.
Note: If the text string you are decoding results in a binary output, it
will be sent directly back to your client as a stream allowing you to save it
as its correct file type. Given the number of possible objects that you could
be trying to decode (GIFs, sound files etc.), were not going to try and
produce a page that will format it all properly! Trying to output a sound file
to an HTML stream wouldnt be that useful anyway...
If you don't want this binary behaviour, pressing Decode Safely As Text
will try its best to output the decoded stream as text. This may result in gibberish,
but it won't result in you being infected by a decoded virus. If you want to be
extra, extra careful, you can use the
Decode Safely As Text
page which doesn't have the binary feature at all, so you can't hit the wrong button.
Files/strings are limited to 10MB - anything larger than that may fail!
