Embeding a <camera>

Below are instructions on how to embed your Camera into a webpage.

Embedding with HTML (static)?
Embeding with JS (dynamic)?

Embedding a <camera> with HTML

First, make sure you have the cameratag.js and cameratag.css files included in the header of your site. The following <script> tag should appear at the bottom of your page's <head> tag

<script src='//cameratag.com/v10/js/cameratag.min.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
<link rel='stylesheet' href='//cameratag.com/static/10/cameratag.css'>
Next, create a new <camera> somehwere in your <body> like the one below.
<camera id='[INSTANCE_ID]' data-app-id='[YOUR_APP_UUID]'></camera>
You will need to replace the values denoted by brackets in the above example.

You will replace [YOUR_APP_UUID] with the UUID of the App you would like to use with this <camera>. This can be found under the name of your App on any of the App pages on CameraTag.

You will replace [INSTANCE_ID] with a unique id for that instance of the <camera>. This will allow you specifically refernce that <camera> on the page.

Pleas note: Each camera on a page MUST HAVE A UNIQUE INSTANCE ID however multiple cameras on a page may be attached to the same App.

Dynamically adding a <camera> to the DOM?

If you want to embed at a camera after the page has loaded simply add the <camera> element to the DOM as described above then call
CameraTag.setup();
This will rescan the DOM for any uninitialized <camera> and/or <video> tags.
