Hi all, I want to do these leds in my hall with random sizes and spaces, how would you go about wiring it? , getting thin cable from say 6 or 7 led pieces so long as they are under 5 metres and all back to a central point for connection to the driver .

I’d run 1.0mm twin and earth all back to central point. And then red through crimps to connect onto the led tape. Worked well with me as I just did my kitchen

What type of cable was it ?
Do you have to use a DC rated cable ?
Or do you just use normal AC cable ?
 
Yep speaker cable will do as long as it’s rated high enough for what you need. Remember to segregate it from 230v cables when on first fix

Any of the above will do.
I houses that have alot of LED tapes and control gear I tend to use 24v Led strip and run 1.5mm YY flex, it allows you that bit extra for scope if you have slightly longer runs.
Also as the YY is double insulated and rated to 230v then separation from other circuit's isnt too much of a issue.
