project turning video file to led screen


i have a rather specific project in mind, and new to arduino, so i'm hoping anyone might have some advice.

starting from a video file (highly contrasted black and white), i would like to build a screen, probably from led, and have arduino translate the video such that when there is white it illuminates the lights basically to make the video play on this screen that i will build.


Hi, Arduino does not have enough processing speed to process video data.

However, it could perhaps run your led screen, depending on how many leds. But you will need to use some other hardware (Raspberry Pi?) to convert the video into a low resolution and a suitable data format for the Arduino to use.
