This is my first time posting. I would like to create a web page which can be updated using UDP messages sent from external software. Specifically, I need the UDP messages to change graphics to be displayed on the page in real time (or within 1-2 seconds). The graphics would already be hosted online with my website and the purpose of the messages would be just to choose which is displayed from moment to moment. In the software (Max/MSP) I can specify an IP and a port number -- is this enough to route it to the right place?
I'm no expert, but I would think you would need to write a UDP client to listen for the message and then take appropriate action - like update the database with the graphic information. Are you hosting the server yourself? You might be able to do this with some PHP socket programming, but that's way beyond my level of knowledge. This is probably not the best forum for this type of question.
