Introduction

Welcome to the Uptobox API ! You can use our API to access Uptobox services.

We have language bindings in Shell and JS! You can view code examples in the dark area to the right, and you can switch the programming language of the examples with the tabs in the top right.

Authentication

Uptobox uses token to allow access to the API. There are no endpoints to trigger an authentication, you just need to provide the token in all your call

The token is expected in the request body and will fallback to query params otherwise. If the token is not found, an error is returned.

How to find my API token ?

You can retrieve your API token by going to the page "My account" then click on the icon right after "token" to copy your token into the clipboard.

My account

Some options in my account page can also be modified by using the API. Please find below a quick description of the feature and how to change it.

Retrieve user data

<?php

$url = 'https://uptobox.com/api/user/me?token=[USR_TOKEN]';
$result = file_get_contents($url);

?>

import axios from 'axios'

axios({
  method: 'get',
  url: 'https://uptobox.com/api/user/me?token=[USR_TOKEN]',
})

The above request returns a JSON structured like this :

Create voucher

We provide 2 different methods to create a voucher. One using user token (recommended) and the other using login/password for authentication (deprecated).

<?php

$url = 'https://uptobox.com/api/user/createVoucher';
$data = [
    'token' => 'USER_TOKEN',
    'time' => '30d',
    'quantity' => 1
];

$curl = curl_init();
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "POST");
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($data));
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, $url);

$result = curl_exec($curl);
curl_close($curl);

echo $result;

?>

import axios from 'axios'

axios({
  method: 'POST',
  url: 'https://uptobox.com/api/user/createVoucher',
  data: {
    token: [USR_TOKEN],
    time: '30d',
    quantity: 1
  }
})

The above request returns a JSON structured like this :

{
    "statusCode": 0,
    "message": "Success",
    "data": [
        {
            "key_code": "21307H4hKVS0daljIPt",

            "key_activated": "0000-00-00 00:00:00"
        }
    ]
}

But triggers an error if the parameter is not correct. For instance :

{
    "statusCode": 7,
    "message": "Invalid parameter",
}

This is the recommended way to create a voucher using our API. You can specify what type of voucher you want as well as the quantity.

To create some vouchers, send a POST request to : https://uptobox.com/api/user/createVoucher

Request body expected :

Parameter Description
token your user token
time the duration for the voucher
quantity the number of voucher to generate


Return values :

Parameter Description
statusCode (Int) Status Code
message (String) Status message

$return = file_get_contents($url);

?>

import axios from 'axios'

axios({
  method: 'GET',
  url: 'https://uptobox.com/api_reseller?u=[login]&p=[password]&t=[time]',
})

The above request returns the keycode :

21308FyuiyP4qDuRoU7

But triggers an error if a parameter is missing. For instance :

{
    "statusCode": 6,
    "message": "Missing parameter",
    "data": "u (login) is missing",
}

Alternatively, you can use our api_reseller route to create a voucher.
This particular endpoint doesn't expect a token but you need to provide your login and password for authentication.

To create a voucher, send a GET request to : https://uptobox.com/api_reseller

Request body expected :

Parameter Description
token your user token
u your login
p your password
t 30d, 365d, 730d

Return values :

On success, returns the key code in plain text format.

On error, return a JSON object :

Parameter Description
statusCode (Int) Status Code
message (String) Status message

Generate a download link

You can generate a download link by using our API. As a free member, you need to wait 30 seconds before each download and 30 minutes between downloads. The API response is different depending on which step you're in.

What is a file code ?

For example, in this link : https://uptobox.com/m5f0ce9h197j
The string m5f0ce9h197j is the file code. A unique identifier for a file hosted on Uptobox. You need to provide the file_code as well as your user token in order to generate a download link.

JSON response on error :

{
    "statusCode": "[statusCode]",
    "message": "[Status message]",
    "data": "[Error object]"
}

If an error happens, here is the returned value :

Parameter Description
statusCode (Int) Status Code
message (String) Status message
data (Object or String) Error

Get a waiting token

<?php

$url = "https://uptobox.com/api/link?token=[USR_TOKEN]&file_code=[FILE_CODE]";

$return = file_get_contents($url);

?>

import axios from 'axios'

axios({
  method: 'GET',
  url: 'https://uptobox.com/api/link?token=[USR_TOKEN]&file_code=[FILE_CODE]',
})

The above request returns a JSON structured like this :

{
    "statusCode": 16,
    "message": "Waiting needed",
    "data": {
        "waiting": 30,
        "waitingToken": "5901651ef57c0b2fa336ad7f7f029986p7qsjf-p7rpv5"
    }
}

But triggers an error if the file_code is wrong. For instance :

{
    "statusCode": 7,
    "message": "Invalid parameter",
    "data": "bad file code"
}

To generate the download link, first send a GET request to : https://uptobox.com/api/link

Query params expected :

Parameter Description
token (string) your user token
file_code (string) the file code
password (string) File password

The 30 seconds countdown will start and the call returns a waitingToken which is a unique identifier for this download link generation attempt.

Return values :

Parameter Description
waiting (string) n seconds to wait
waitingToken (string) a unique identifier to generate a download link

If you've downloaded a file recently. You need to wait about 30 minutes before generating a link again.

<?php

$url = "https://uptobox.com/api/link?token=[USR_TOKEN]&file_code=[FILE_CODE]&waitingToken=[WAITING_TOKEN]";

$return = file_get_contents($url);

?>

import axios from 'axios'

axios({
  method: 'GET',
  url: 'https://uptobox.com/api/link?token=[USR_TOKEN]&file_code[FILE_CODE]&waitingToken=[WAITING_TOKEN]',
})

The above request returns a JSON structured like this :

{
    "statusCode": 0,
    "message": "Success",
    "data": {
        "dlLink": "[DL_LINK]",
    }
}

After getting the waitingToken in the previous step and after waiting 30 seconds,
send a GET request to : https://uptobox.com/api/link

Query params expected :

Parameter Description
token (string) your user token
file_code (string) the file code
waitingToken (string) the waiting token

Return values :

Parameter Description
dlLink (string) the generated download link

Uptostream

Uptostream is a service that allows you to stream video content hosted on Uptobox directly in your browser.

Use a remote subtitle

You can load a streaming link with a remote subtitle.

To do that, modify your url so it look like this: https://uptostream.com/xxxxxxxxx?sub=[subtitle_url]'

Uptostream will then look at [subtitle_url] and will load the subtitle for you.

Pin authentication

Users may need to authenticate to Uptobox through your application and filling a login form can be cumbersome especially if your app runs on TV.

To ease your user's experience, we provide the possibility for your application to use a PIN-auth system.

How it works ? Every time you need to authenticate a user we send you a PIN code that needs to be validated by the user. They can visit a page on our website using their credentials to link the PIN code to their account at this address:

https://uptobox.com/pin.

It can be done using a phone, a tablet or a computer and since their devices are most of the time already logged in, the whole process is seamless.

Implementation

You can use the pin auth system in two different scenarios:

Authenticate a user to stream a file on Uptobox

If a user request to stream a file, your application should retrieve the streaming links. To do that, you will provide us the file_code and we will perform internal check to determine if the file is available for streaming.

We then generate and return a unique PIN code that needs to be validated by the user on our dedicated page :

https://uptobox.com/pin

Once the user has submitted the PIN, you can call our API providing the PIN code and it will return the streaming links.

Authenticate a user and retrieve auth token

You may need the user authentication token to perform action on your user's behalve. To do that, we generate an API code that needs to be validated by the user on our dedicated page. Once the user has submitted the PIN, you can call our API providing the PIN code and it will return the authentication token.

In summary

Get a pin

<?php

$url = 'https://uptobox.com/api/streaming';

$result = curl_exec($curl);
curl_close($curl);

echo $result;

?>
