HiDPI support

Post by pleaseking » Sun Feb 17, 2019 11:10 pm

Hi,

I have just started using makemkv and it is an awesome tool. However, there is one issue - the program does not support HiDPI making it very hard to use on modern displays. Any chance to fix that? I can help if needed.

Thanks,
Michael

Can you say more about this?

What you want is not part of the metadata found on DVD, Blu-ray, UHD, is it? MakeMKV can't do anything about that.

I believe he’s referring to how the app appears on his “retina” display not the Makemkv output. :wink:

I am saying about how the UI looks - nothing about the output. See the screenshot below - the OS fonts/icons are all normal size, but MakeMKV fonts are way too small:

Hmm, the size of the icons and text looks very very large. I use a Eizo IPS 27" Monitor with 2560x1440px and windows 100% scaling for text and apps. Compared with your screenshot my icons and text has a normal size and MakeMKV looks good. I think you have changed the scaling in windows and this is always a bad idea. Never seen in the past, that this gives good results because some fonts are looking strange if the scaling is increased.

I use a 40 inch 4K TV as my monitor. I could feed it 1K from my computer but the Windows text is much less blocky if I set the resolution to 4K and scaling to 200%. Some programs like MakeMKV show tiny icons in this arrangement. Strange looking but MakeMKV still works well.

Leaving the resolution at 4K but setting the scaling to 100% makes Windows icons and text so tiny I can only read it at 1-2 feet from the screen.
