When using a HiDPI display, its difficult to view the old Winamp classic skins. These skins are however still desired and I'm use a lot of users use them. It would be great to be able to scale the size of the UI on the old winamp skins. I remember winamp actually having a "Double UI" option. Double UI would be great - but if there would be a way to do other scaling factors that would be great as well

Well I am happy to see there is a "Double size" option in audacious. Looks like I missed that previously!! Doh!

While this is open - I do think it would be nice to have some fractional scale options if they are do-able (1x, 1.5x, 2x, etc). I may take a look into the complexity of this and report back

Keep this open unless you are aware that fractional scaling is a huge PITA

I thought about this more and I'm not sure how fractional scaling would work.. But 3x and 4x could be useful in HiDPI situations

The WinAmp skin scaling should already adjust for high-DPI screens. For example, over 192 DPI, 2x is the "normal" scaling and "double size" will increase it to 3x instead.

What is your DPI setting? Run "xrdb -query" to find out if you're not sure.

Thanks for the info John Lindgren. Looks like I was having some UI issues with my PC with the 4K monitor.

This can safely be closed; thanks and sorry for the noise
