Winamp unwatchable on my display; need replacement

I got a new laptop with a High DPI display. Winamp's UI displays font size of about 1pt. So tiny an ant couldn't read it. Various discussion board workarounds are for IT experts only. Windows 10 also classifies the entire Winamp discussion board as malware, and won't let me access it (I'm using my old laptop to post this).

I'm giving up on Winamp. What's the next best alternative that has actual readable fonts in a High DPI display, and will run MP3, WAV, PLS, etc?

There's skins that can handle high DPI, especially if you look at the cPro2 addons. But I guess you could always use Groove/iTunes if you're dropping winamp completely

Can you steer me to a download site for an add-on that will solve the problem? My PLS file has a PHP that rotates station IDs, which is incompatible in iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc.

Apparently skinconsortium.com is having db issues, so you cant access it. I think i have a copy, so when I get home I can see about uploading it.

for some reason I cannot upload to here, so here's a link

You should be able to find skins via deviantart no problem (I think Victhor has a few)

Sorry about that, I honestly just jumped on the first one i could find since I rarely send files over the internet anymore because usually there's a link I could point out. Anyway, let me know if the link i PM'd you works, if not I will email it to you

Edit: I just checked the zippyshare link and had no issue redownloading it

@dj001 Sorry for the late reply, I think my skin will be perfect for your needs >> https://getwacup.com/community/index...pic,212.0.html.
It's a reimagination of Big Bento so you won´t be really lost on the UI, check it out and, if possible, let me know on that forum/thread if you find any issue or have suggestions.

Ey, happy holidays =)

I noticed Martin Pöhlmann (site co-owner) about the SC site but he's with little to no time to fix it, apparently he looked at it and found what was happening but it seems to require a complex fix.. =(

In the meantime, the cPro plugin can be found on the download section of 1001skins, and most of the cPro skins can be found on that site too.

you know, for some reason I didn't think of checking 1001skins. DJ was asking for the installer and I had to upload my own copy for him though I wanted to direct him to a direct location instead (plus he said symantec flagged it as malware which I assume was a false positive since I run it). Anyway thanks for following up and have a great new year!
