Hello,

On overall XMPlay is excellent but on a HD screen it looks rather small.
Could you add a 2x size like there's in Winamp so any skin gets bigger ?

Thank you  ;D

  • 'Do it like Winamp' is really not the way to ask for something.
  • There is a separate Suggestion for 3.6-thread. Wait, no need to post it again, I'll put it on the list.
  • You can get double-sized version of Neutron, Min and WMP10v2 in this thread.
  • Do you want some fluffy interpolation, or a brute nearest-neighbour type of enlargement?

Oh ok I haven't seen that thread.

Why nearest-neighbour if you can afford better ? lol

Thank you  ;D

Surprisingly, nearest-neighbor can actually give cleaner results than interpolation in certain cases.

Hi,

Actually you're right I haven't thought about it but yes; so yes, if you can afford implementing both, that'd be great !

Thank you  ;D

I'd like to be able to do something similar: increase the width only so I can gain more precision for the seek bar.

Imagine playing a 2-hour long podcast and seeking with the tiny default seekbar. There's not enough precision to skip 30 seconds forward, for example.

With Media Player Classic,I can do that easily: just drag and stretch the player window. You get as much precision as you like.

While double size would be possible with every skin, you cannot simply stretch a skin only horizontally, at least not with the current way how skins work.
