Hi all,
I have a small "problem" when using theatermode on my UHD-Monitor. The pictures have a really bad quality.
Is there a possibility to influence the resizing by setting somm (hidden) parameters or something like that.

Her is an example to show what I mean:



Kind regards

What's the resolution of the pictures you're using? Perhaps you need better quality (higher resolution) artwork.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Check out the MusicBee Wiki.
How to post screenshots is here.

Those images look really weird.
They don't seem just low-res, but as if both a posterizing effect and some scarface plugin was applied.

Sorry, no clue how that could have happened, or what the source of those images are, just an observation.


edit:
They resemble a bit how low-quality .gifs sometimes look like.
Maybe they are gif? And not jpg or png?

Hello all,

I found the solution myself. As I said I use a 4k Monitor but I've set the Windows 10 scaling to 175%. In order for the Skins to look right one then has to set the "High DPI-Settings" on the Compatibility Page in the properties dialog window for the Application. There you have to check  "Overwrite High-DPI-Scaling" and set it to "System". If you set it to "System Extended" you get the effect I showed in my first Screenshot. Excuse me, if the translations for the Settings are wrong, but I have a german system.
Here is a Screenshot:



And a picture showing the TheaterMode:



Thank you very much for thinking about the problem.
