You mean to say instead of sending a string from client using the .send() function i send the json data to the server and on the server side receive it via recv() function.
Yes. JSON data is a string. That is the main point of it.

Re: Wrong Image Color

That doesn't look like an official Raspberry Pi camera module, it is possibly one of the clones of the original version. As it has the dodgy big IR LEDS on either side, it is probably a NoIR or night vision version with no infrared filter over the lens. That can make colours distorted in natural lig...

Interesting. I believe there are some start up issues when things are powered from the 3.3V pin on the GPIO connector. Do you suspect it is something to do with this? I'm not sure, as some of the people reporting failures state they have not atteched anything to that connector. Currently I have two ...

Re: Power on / shutdown RPI time or network

There are HATs and other units that can shut a Pi down and remove power, and start it up again when a button is pressed. But I don't know of any that include a timer option. The Pi doesn't use a lot of power compared to other computers. A desktop PC in standby or shutdown state uses about the same p...

Re: RPi 2 amber light on router

If you read the manual for your router you will see that a white LED indicates a 1000Mb/1Gb connection and amber indicates 100Mb. The Pi 3B has a 100Mb network interface.

Re: WS2812b Strip Help

Is it a single strip, or is it several strips joined together?

It might be worth running power cables to both ends.

It could also be the thickness of the cables from the power supply. If too thin they might be losing power.

You have a choice. You can remove your current php7.0 and all associated packages and build from source. Or, you can wait a few months until Raspbian Buster is released with php7.3. Or (only slightly dodgy now) run a mixed system with some packages from Buster and the rest from Stretch. A little bit...

In that case, one of the ESP8266 modules that connect to the GPIO pins may be what you need. Smaller than a HAT and may need a bit of configuration, but plenty of examples out there and fairly easy to get working.

I have already explained why that can be difficult/almost impossible. The original OS is using files on the SD card (or USB device or whatever you are using for storage).

Ok, for the Pi it is usually recommended that you turn it off, take out the SD card and install the latest Raspbian image on it. If you are just upgrading from an older release of Raspbian Stretch to the latest release, you don't need to reinstall, you can upgrade with apt-get upgrade (or apt-get di...
