Hello,


I'm working on a little app which needs to recieve information from

a script on a web server. I tried to have the vb.net app pole a php

web page for a command every half of a second. This worked but, the

app is streaming video and every time the app needs to pole the webpage

the video stutter stops. I tried setting the pole timer to 5 seconds and still

every 5 seconds the video stutters. I thought that maybe sockets would be

the answer, so I looked for examples of vb.net socket servers and php socket

clients. I tried implementing a solution but the php cannot seem to connect to

the vb.net server. I googled around and saw that maybe php cannot

communicate with a vb.net application.

Does anybody have any experience with this type of situation? I am not home

at the moment but as soon as I get to my machine I will post the code I am

using.

I guess my question is if anybody knows if this can be done, or if there is a

way to implement the web page pole without the little hangup, maybe using

a

background worker, although I am not sure how the background workers,

work.

Thanks, for reading!
Mike.
