See Mozilla Developer Network for details of base 64 encoding. TiddlyWiki uses library code from @nijikokun to handle the conversion.

The input strings must be base64 encoded. The output strings are the text (or binary data) decoded from base64 format.

The optional binary suffix, if present, changes how the input is processed. The input is normally assumed to be UTF-8 text encoded in base64 form (such as what the encodebase64 operator produces), so only certain byte sequences in the input are valid. If the input is binary data encoded in base64 format (such as an image, audio file, video file, etc.), then use the optional binary suffix, which will allow all byte sequences. Note that the output will then be binary, not text, and should probably not be passed into further filter operators.

The optional urlsafe suffix, if present, causes the decoder to assume that the base64 input uses - and _ instead of + and / for the 62nd and 63rd characters of the base64 "alphabet", which is usually referred to as "URL-safe base64" or "bae64url".
