I tried upload using Oauth Echo but it failed. “Connection reset by peer” is the message I got by the call.
Oauth Echo upload was successful on TwitPic, and I only changed api key and endpoint in my upload method.
Is there anything else I need?
( I omitted “message” parameter, which was not problem on TwitPic )

I will have a look at it. Could you mail me your API key at timan@mobypicture.com?

Is the ‘services’ parameter (as seen in postMedia) available when using the upload method?

When using Twitter OAuth echo, what if the user does not have an account with MobyPicture?
