A complete step by step beginners guide on how to Use the Paho Python MQTT Client.
In this video we cover connecting,disconnecting, publishing and subscribing.
We start with a very basic script and build on that script while demonstrating callbacks ,the client loop.subscribing,publishing and receiving messages
We look at the on_connect,on_message, on disconnect, and on_log callabacks
We also look at the built in log callback which is very useful for debugging
We examine why messages may seem out of sequence.

    Is there a video or website that explains how to write client code for a Mosquitto Broker? I find it difficult to believe that thousands of IoT message publications can be handled by one program instance. Help!

    Hello friend, how are you?
    I have a question, can this same code be bundled with kivy python and run on android and ios phones without any changes? Using the same library and all the same?

    Steve, I'm trying to connect to any of the given brokers but none of them give successful connection.
    This is the error that I receive:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
    File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/paho/mqtt/client.py", line 768, in connect
    return self.reconnect()
    File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/paho/mqtt/client.py", line 895, in reconnect
    sock = socket.create_connection((self._host, self._port), source_address=(self._bind_address, 0))
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/socket.py", line 571, in create_connection
    raise err
    socket.error: [Errno 111] Connection refused
    Do you know why this happens?

    Steve, but how to run MQTT client as a daemon (on unix) that will subscribe to all thousands topics from mosquito (i.e. from devices) to be able constantly monitoring what is going on on devices and do some actions (e.g. send emails) according to some events (e.g. the fact that something was publish to a certain topic or some specific message came to the topic). Did you cover this in any tutorial?

    Thank you for the great tutorials on mqtt… are you planning to make some videos for the android mqtt client library.. If so that will be very interesting.

    Steve – You have some great videos on MQTT Paho. I'm trying to use the msg.payload to make decisions in the python program I'm running and having problems. Do you have the code for each example you use in the "Paho Python MQTT Client for Beginners" series on your site. I can't find it if you do. Thank you for all your efforts. – Joe
