Solved Match colors of desktop to unadressable led-strip

Couple of days ago I managed to connect my unadressable LED strip (4-pin) to my computer with arduino. Now I wonder if it’s possible to match a global color (1 color) of my desktop/video/movie. So not a real ambilight because that’s impossible with this kind of strip. But just matching 1 color from the desktop for the whole strip.

Is there a code I can use? Or a program

I’d not heard of arduino until your post, so no experience with it.

However as question or three about the led strip.

What colour are the leds?

Are they all one colour (typically white); and are they is a single line strip and in a mosaic or square or similar layout?

If all one colour then that’s the colour they can be, albeit brighter or darker of course depending on the current they receive.

Coloured led displays (as I have seen quite a while back) usually consist of a mosaic of red, blue and green leds; arranged in either clusters of the three colours or in adjacent rows?

The light output - colour and brightness - can be adjusted to give whatever colour required by varying the amount each colour led o/p emits.
