Antigate (Anti-Captcha) API support

For your convenience, we implemented support for Antigate (Anti-Captcha) API. If your software works with it, and supports minimal configuration, you should be able to decode captchas using Death By Captcha in no time.

Antigate API FAQ

What are your Antigate API URLs?

http://api.dbcapi.me/in.php and http://api.dbcapi.me/res.php.

How do I use your Antigate API server?

In your software`s settings, use:

  • Host or server: api.dbcapi.me
  • Port (if asked): 80

For the API key, use your Death By Captcha username and password, separated by a colon (:). For example, myusername:mypassword.
