Flickering leds (esp8266) #457
I have a problem, with leds. Examples from library does not work properly, sometimes strip is only partialy lighted, and of course a lot of flickering. I use Nodemcu lolin v3 (esp8266). Everything is wired like there. There is common ground, resistor and capacitor. I use TXS0108E level converter to step up data line. I tried almost all pins on Nodemcu - no diffrence. Led type: WS2812B.
On the movie I use example ColorPalette, where I added:
I got an error too:
See the FAQ and ask on the G+ group, not here please. GitHub is for FastLED library code issues and since examples have the same issue on your setup, it's not a FastLED issue. That said, I had trouble with cheaper level shifters from Ebay that went away with a more traditional 74HC245.
The message is normal since 8266 doesn't drive LEDs using SPI.
