If you get error while uploading to arduino nano, in the Arduino IDE go to Tools – Processor – Atmega 328P (Old bootloader)

Also use at least 3A or more power supply. Some users had issues with a smaller one so I added new links for stronger ones.

I’m really excited to show you a step by step guide for building your own Ambilight system on the cheap for only 10 Euros.

Due to Recent changes to the YouTube partners program I will no longer be able to monetize my videos so I’ve come up with a few ways you can support my channel if you wish:

Subscribing to my channel is the number one way you can help me grow and enable monetization in the future. I thank you in advance 🙂

For this build we will be using an Arduino NANO, a small breadboard, 5v 2.1A phone charger and of course the WS2812b LED strips can light up each individual LED light in a different color and brightness.
