	$secret = 'MY_SECRET'; # replace it with your Secret
	$query = 'url=' . urlencode($url);
	foreach($options as $key => $value) { 
		$query .= '&' . trim($key) . '=' . urlencode(trim($value)); 
	$token = md5($query . $secret);

	return "https://api.thumbalizr.com/api/v1/embed/$embed_key/$token/?$query";
