DIY Ambilight Tutorial!! This is the EASIEST to follow instructions on how to build and set up an AWESOME Ambient Lighting system (Ambilight) with OSMC, KODI, Arduino and Raspberry Pi 3 for your HDTV that will work with ANY HDMI device!!

You can see a better Demonstration of it here:

This is my first Youtube video. My friends keep telling me I should create a channel because I am always building or designing cool stuff! So here it is. I will be adding more videos as I go and hopefully I will get better at it, so make sure to subscribe!!! And I could use any constructive criticism too!

And feel free to buy me a beer!!! Cheers!!!

Most instructions I could find in the internet are very outdated or just really hard to follow. Most of them require you to know quite a bit about Linux and command line strings. And most of them do not work very well or at all.
I spent weeks going through many tutorials, downloading many disk images and lots of software, typing command line strings, translating Russian and none of them worked right or took advantage of the newer hardware available. So I took it upon myself to do it right!
This tutorial is very easy to follow and covers all the bases and questions that I had when trying to get everything working. I used the newest hardware and software. I also configured it with the Custom build "Pulse"!! Then I installed all the needed Linux drivers and the newest version of Hyperion. Once I had everything working, I made a disk image that you can use! This will make it all very easy to get it up and running!

Very easy to follow and build as I have done all the setup for you!

Here are links to the software programs you will need:
Raspberry Pi SD card Image, Arduino Sketch, Win32DiskImager and Hypercon.jar:

WS2812B RGB LED Strip, 5 Meters, 60 LEDs/M - http://www.aliexpress.com/item/5M-DC5...
HDMI Selector - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/5-Por... Most will work. I used the Fosmon HD1832 Intelligent 5-Port HDMI Switch from Amazon
USB Grabber (UTV007 Chipset) - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/USB-2...

5V – 10A Power Supply (To power LEDs) - http://www.aliexpress.com/item/power-...

Also, here is a link to the RGB strip quick connectors. With these you will not have to do any soldering!!

Also you will be able to control the LEDs from the Hyperion app on your phone too!

Note: I forgot to mention an important changes. I have added some notations. Sometimes Google chrome may not show notations properly, it you don't see them, try a different browser please.

Please subscribe!

I have many other cool projects in the works, so I will be adding other cool videos in the near future!!
