some of you don't know which LEDs to buy/choose. I found a overview with common LEDs:
We highly recommend the 4-Wire/clocked/synchronous Chipsets! They work directly on RPis SPI-Port without big known issues.
The 3-Wire/nonclocked/asynchronous Chipsets for example the WS2812B often leads to problems and require additional Hardware like an Arduino!
