VoDLocker API

a free web service to obtain video information


This API was created for website owners to download and stream videos instantly, directly on any website!

Why We Did It

We believe the complexity of uploading a video has become unnecessary, so we have created much like google, an automated crawler that visits millions of pages every day to find all videos on the internet. VoDLocker searches all general video hosters like youtube, google drive, openload...

Why should I use VoDLocker?

If you want to access our massive database of free video and download links, VoDLocker is a perfect way of doing so. Have a look at the demo and generate your feature rich, simple to embed HTML5 Video player.

Link Checker

Our link checker finds the best full HD movies and skips broken links.


Built-in chromecast plugin streams free HD movies/tv shows from your website to your TV via Google Chromecast.


The opensubtitles.org plugin finds subtitles in all languages and auto-selects your language.


The imdb.com plugin finds the best full HD poster while the player is loading. The poster parameter sets the image(s) that displays before the video starts playing. As soon as the videos streams the poster will disappear.
