ESP8266 YouTube Subscriber Display On LED Matrix

Post by Eric » Tue Aug 07, 2018 3:29 pm

How I made an EASY Wifi connected subscriber display using the MAX7219 LED Matrix display to show current YouTube subscriber count or any other text you wish!

This was an awesome project but as usual I got lost. Is there an app or program that will display your sub count using a PC or Android tablet?

Thanks and I love this new series you are doing.

Hey Tom,Easiest as mentioned in the comments is to use one of the free services like SocialBlade. Lots of others too.

Hi Eric,

I am trying to get a variant of this working. It uses wifimanager to allow the user to enter the required info it does away with the need to hardcode the network credentials. I am always changing network providers when an offer is on.

I am using a MAX7219 9 digit display.
Your Matrix display is far far better but I don't have one as yet.

I can get wifi manager working but the code for operating the display must be wrong. It compiles ok but It just does not communicate with the display.

I would really appreciate it if you could take a look for me?

Kind Regards
James
