Owing to the constrained useful resource of ESP32CAM, the server from ESP32 can’t address multiple explicit shopper. On this film, Element. 1, I’ll show you the right way to arrange a neighborhood on-line video streaming server with Node.js and WebSocket.

  1. Thank you sir for explain!

    Can I ask some questions?

    i kept trying to change your code to post but failed..

    i try to use http post to save image from esp32 cam by


    http.addHeader("Content-Type", "img/jpeg"); //Specify content-type header

    int httpResponseCode = http.POST((const char*)fb->buf); //Send the actual POST request


    In this case the data type is still blob type as you explain 7:46 ?

    and can i get tip to make js file for post?

  2. Hi, Great thanks for the project, it is really good!! I managed to do every step, but for the last one. When I write my IP address :8000/client nothing shows up. I've tried several browsers (Safari, Chrome), allow non-secure access, etc. The page is white. Terminal shows "connected" message. So, I don't know what is wrong. Any idea? thanks

  3. Hi, thanks for the tutorial.
    I've follow thru all the step, it shows in my cmd the esp32 is connected to the server after uploading the code, however i cant connect through the web browser.(White screen nothing show up)
    Any solution for this?
    Thanks so much.

  4. Hi, I've set up the server based on your tutorial, now the server can receive the socket from camera and then broadcast the data to the clients. Now I wonder how to send the live image to RTMP server like youbute, I've tried to use the ffmpeg in the sever.js, I can send the mp4 to RTMP server after testing, but I've no idea how to send the jpg stream to RTMP server, can you help on this ? thanks a lot! ^_^

  5. Thank you for sharing this tutorial. I've set the server and got the real time image. Is there any method to impove the quality of the image ? which parameter can i adjust ? Thanks in advance.

  6. Nice video and since I just got my ESP32 cam conneted for the first time, I would love to be able to do this. But it would take me a month of Sundays to do this…thats saying that i could actually do it. To advanced for me. But thanks.

  7. Hello Sir … firstly let me thank you for the awesome tutorial. I had followed the process to the "T". Have also downloaded your project file from GitHub and updated the details (IP address, etc.) as per my specifics. Everything works okay and the CMD states "connected" and so does the serial monitor in Arduino IDE. However, there's no video or image being shown. There's only a message "Upgrade Required" being shown on the ip:port/client page. I had tried using Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera and also in my Android phone. I am using Windows 10 x64 , Node.js, Visual C++ and Arduino IDE – all updated to the latest version. The same issue persists. Please assist.

  8. ref: server.js

    const path = require('path');

    const express = require('express');

    const WebSocket = require(ws);

    const app = express();

    I have copied your server.js code but get the following message in Windows Power Shell :
    Error: Cannot find module 'express'

    If I comment that line out I get : Error: Cannot find module 'ws'

    However it excepts const path = require('path');

    What am I missing?

  9. Hi. Thanks for this.

    You will find that your code will only support sending an image smaller than 16384 bytes, due to the limitation of the Websocket message when using secure TLS wss:// (insecure ws:// seemed to work ok) – So only QVGA size will work.

    To overcome this, I finally worked out how to "chunk" the image data to send using extra methods in TinyWebSockets. See : https://github.com/gilmaimon/ArduinoWebsockets/issues/61#issuecomment-570860795

    Cheers! 🙂

  10. Thanks for video. Could you explain how to get videostream, get snapshot for xiaomi or other mass production cameras (Besder, Escam and etc) So I need the same functionality as you implemented but with more picture quality ip camera.

  11. Hi ! After starting the server with node server.js I'm getting an error stating "Cannot GET /" when I access ip_adress:8000. I read that it can be "missing your routes".
    I downloaded your Github folder with the 3 files and just created a "domains" folder on disk C: and the path looks like this:
    I enter the domains folder via CMD and run "node server.js". The node_modules folder was created by Node. OK until then.
    But when I run "ipaddress: 8000" I get this error message : Cannot GET /
    Thanks if you can help me.
    Thank you!
