Now, could you please clarify 3 "small" things, first, is this an extension of the monitor? i mean it recognizes only the colours of the bottom?, second this works for games? or videos/movies only?, 3rd how in the world can i install it? is there an easier way to do it? im a complete beginer in this npm github etc stuff, i really tried, i've got the git, the npm, but i still getting some errors and warns in the cmd when i try to install it.

thank you!
It only works in non-games, because of the screen capturing.
It uses a program (ffmpeg) to record a bar of pixels on the lower part of your display (shouldn't impact performance that much)

I've got a experimental (easy) version
