I made some progress... Smile Finaly all integrated in 1 addon, running live... still a long way to go (I need to implement brightness, i.e.) but a step ahead Smile

A test showing a simple 1 color video and light bulb in the back changing color to the screen. There is a visible delay, but once I make it work I can fine-tune it (I hope so) Smile

Wow man this is great, I think it's already very reactive, but If You can make it faster then it will be awesome. Smile

If I understand correctly, It will use the most common color of the screen.

Can You please show us how it works for example with a movie trailer and maybe use the lightstrip Smile

I noticed that my lightstrip can't do a proper cyan and light blue color, so my question is that the bulb has a better color reproduction?

I ask You because You possess both, so maybe You can check it.

Thank You I really appreciate Your time and effort to make this happen

Keep up the good work Smile

Yes

It doesn't still work very well because there is no brightness factor Smile As soon as I put it in I'll check. Right now when I play a film it is mostly white, except when there's like grass/trees so it goes green or sky so it goes blue, but for normal indor scenes it is mostly white because it is simply too bright.

OK, a real video test Smile Pretty useless for the time being Sad It kinda works but I need to make a setup with 2 builbs, at least left/rigtht, when I play a film it always averages to near-white color... got it to look at least a bit OK with this Ambilight test video... but there are huge delays sometimes...

Wow, I must say I'm very impressed!

I never thought that it will be so dynamic. Great job man !!!

Yes, sometimes is stuck in, but if You can resolve that issue, then this will be the best Ambilight addon for Kodi, no doubt about that. Smile

I saw a lot of videos on YouTube with Hue and Lifx addons but none of them was so dynamic.

The colors are pale with almost every movie, You can check original Philips Ambilight TV videos with movies they are show on average pale colors (shade of light blue,violet,green, and earth colors like brown,beige,yellow).

Of course when You play a colorful video for example a cartoon, then it will be more colorful, not just pastel colors.

And the other think is that these Yeelight products doesn't have such a wide color reproduction capability.

I want to use my Lightstrip somehow like this:

I can't wait for the release of this awesome addon. Smile

Thanks again for Your efforts! Smile

Have a nice day
