can you mix types on a strand?  I have one strand of rectangles that I added some squares onto.  The thought was that they are all 12v WS2811 so they should work.  Rectangles do but the squares on the end don't.

In theory, they should, but I can think of two gotchas. First is the color order may not be the same which would result in the wrong colors displaying. Second is you can not assume that they both use the same wiring color standard.

You should be able to mix any pixels of the same voltage and same chip set (WS2811) with no problem as long as they have the same orientation (RGB / BGR etc).  You could have rectangle, square, bullet and ribbons on the same line as long as the above is the same.
