                                                                       Application Note:
            Sharing and Embedding Photos using Photobucket with the Remote Cam

Raptor Remote Cam
This Application Note will cover how to easily set up a free Photobucket account that will let you share your Raptor Remote Cam's M2M Connect Cloud photos. The Raptor Remote Camera is a very versatile camera system having many applications from security to remote time-lapse monitoring. The functionality of the M2M Connect Cloud allows for easy review and processing of the many photos transmitted from your Raptor Remote Camera. However, their may be time where you wish to share your photos with the public without giving them to the login to your M2M Connect Cloud account. Here's how to share your Raptor Cam photos with the public.

Laurel Mountain PA DCNR Golden Eagle Research Site
PixController, Inc. has been involved with a seasonal program involving the Pennsylvania DCNR golden eagle research site since 2015. The camera broadcasts photos from the site for public and educational purposes. For this project we send the photos to a Photobucket account and embed the Photobucket "folder" into a website for rebroadcasting. This is a cost effective solution over streaming video for sharing data with the public.
 

Step 1. Create a Photobucket Account
Photobucket is a free photo sharing service. Create your free account today at http://www.photobucket.com/ and select the "Sign Up" button to create your account. Once you have your account created you will need your Photobucket Mobile Upload Email Address. To get your Mobile Upload Address click on the "Setting" link under your account information. Then click on the "Mobile" tab. The email address will be in the Mobile Upload Address text box and will have the format username.pin@uploads.photobucket.com.

    

Next, create a "Library" under your main account. This is basically a folder where the M2M Connect Cloud will deposit the photos. Make sure you chose a name without spaces or special characters.

Step 2. Settings for your Raptor Cam M2M Connect Cloud
Next, log into your M2M Connect Cloud account and go to the configuration settings and click on the "Email" tab. Here you want to enter your Photobucket Mobile Email Address into the Email Recipients window. Note, if you have other email addresses in this window the Photobucket email address must appear first. Then add the Photobucket Library name to the subject line. Lastly, make sure the "None" radio button is selected under the Trigger Email Format box.

   
Step 3. Get the Photobucket Embedded Codes
To get the embedded code iFrame to place in your website HTML code go to your Photobucket Library page. On the right you will see options to "Share this album". You can either embed a slideshow showing the last 100 photos uploaded in the library from the Raptor Cam or the entire set of photos by embedding the Story.

  

The embedded codes will be formatted in the following:

Slideshow
     <iframe width="480" height="360" src="http://s776.photobucket.com/user/username/embed/slideshow/library"></iframe>

Story
     <iframe width="480" height="360" src="http://s776.photobucket.com/user/username/embed/library/story"></iframe>

Note, you can adjust the size of the embedded iFrame by changing the "width" and "height" variables.


Step 4. Add the Embedded Codes to your Website
The last step is to add the embedded iFrame to your website HTML code. You will need to consult your web developer for this process. Here's an example of the DCNR Golden Eagle Research website: http://www.pixcontroller.com/DCNR/
