“Dear friends welcome to another project video! Today we are going to build an ESP32 Internet Radio device with a big 3.5” display using an inexpensive ESP32 board. Believe it or not, we can now build an ESP32 Internet Radio in less than 10 minutes and with less than 30$. There is a lot to cover so, let’s get started!
Hello, guys, I am Nick and welcome to educ8s.tv a channel that is all about DIY electronics projects. In this channel, I share everything about the projects I build to help you develop similar projects or inspire you to start making things because it is easy, fun and creative. Subscribe to the channel now if you do not want to miss any future video.
A few months ago, I completed this FM Radio project which works great and looks even better in my opinion. If you want to see how I built this project you can watch the following video.
The problem is that, although this radio looks cool it is not practical because I live in a small town in southern Greece and the big Greek radio stations I prefer to listen to, do not have transmitters around here. So, I listen to my favorite radios online on my laptop or tablet pc which is also not so practical. So, today I am going to build an Internet radio device in order to be able to listen to my favorite radio stations from all over the world!
As you can see, a first version of the ESP32 Internet Radio project is ready on a breadboard. Let’s power it up. As you can see the project connects to the Internet and then streams music from predefined Radio Stations. Let’s listen to it for a few seconds.…………..I have tuned in to the Real FM radio station from Athens and by using these buttons we can change the Radio Station we are listening to. I have saved my favorite radio stations to the memory of the ESP32 so I can access them easily.
With this potentiometer, I can change the volume of the speaker. I display the Name of the Radio Station we are listening to on a big 3.5” display with a retro User Interface. The project works fine and it is very easy to build. You can build the same project in less than 10 minutes but you need to have some experience. If this is your first project, consider building a simpler one first, to gain some experience. Check my channel for simple project ideas and when you are more comfortable with the Arduino the electronics come back to build this cool project. Let’s now start building our own ESP32 Internet Radio.”
