Rui: Since it’s early days, you may be monitoring this board. I’ve been a fan of your for and while now and have recommended you to a number of people. I’ll also bring this course up as a subject at our next Seattle Robotics Society meeting. I think your format is well done, the price is reasonable, and I know the content will be interesting. I have a couple of comments/questions: ISP service: I’m not sure how much access you have to different ISP’s, but I urge you to find a better one! Every video I watch pauses several times. I don’t have that trouble with other sites, or with streaming video TV, so I;m assuming your end is the challenge. Folks today don’t have much patience with “stuttering” video and I’m afraid you’ll lose clients because of that. You might run a survey among you new clients and see if I’m the only one with problems. It’s a beautiful sunny day in Seattle so I can’t believe all my shared Comcast folks are stuck inside like me. ESP8266 programming. I’ve been trying to build a weather station using 2 ESP8266’s as server and client. I’ve been programming the Arduino for some time now and like that environment. I’ve tried to duplicate you “making 2 ESP8266’s talk” blog post using the Arduino ESP8266 install so I don’t have to learn LUA. Haven’t been successful so far as the intricacies of the server/client protocols are a bit challenging for me. If possible, I request that any of the ESP programming you recommend be done in the Arduino environment for commonality across platforms. I hope this course works for you as I’ve enjoyed your blog posts. Best Regards, Jim.
Hi Jim, Thanks for following and sharing my work. To host my video I’m using Vimeo.com which is the second largest video streaming service in the world (after YouTube). I agree with you, I’ve chosen Vimeo.com, because it works flawlessly (at least on my end). They actually just announced a bug in their services a few days ago, but they are working on it. https://vimeo.com/forums/help/topic:281401 I’ll definitely switch from Vimeo to another provided if these problems keep happening. Can you tell me which device+browser+extensions are you using?
There is a great example by Sparkfun on that subject. They basically use the following sketch: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/esp8266-thing-hookup-guide/example-sketch-ap-web-server to turn the ESP8266 into an Access Point (server). Then with a simple HTTP client you can do requests with your ESP8266 to the server. Can you tell me the type of data you would like to send between the 2 ESPs?
