UTF-8 Characters in M3U8 Files Not Recognized

Post by J_T_W » Sun Jan 06, 2019 2:54 pm

I've a few playlists that include paths to files where the path contains UTF-8 characters. Example:

Code: Select all

#EXTM3U
\\DX21MSFILE\MP3S\E\Exposé\1986 - Come Go With Me (Single)\B2 - Come Go With Me (Radio Mix).mp3
\\DX21MSFILE\MP3S\S\Stevie B\1998 - Best Of Stevie B\01 - Dreamin’ Of Love.mp3
\\DX21MSFILE\MP3S\P\Pretty Poison\1987 - Catch Me (I'm Falling) (Single)\US 12-INCH\A1 - Catch Me (I'm Falling) (12'' Mix).mp3
On scan/import, the log indicates that it cannot find the path and thus doesn't import it:

Code: Select all

File not found: \\DX21MSFILE\MP3S\E\Expos....\1986 - Come Go With Me (Single)\B2 - Come Go With Me (Radio Mix).mp3
File not found: \\DX21MSFILE\MP3S\S\Stevie B\1998 - Best Of Stevie B\01 - Dreamin........ Of Love.mp3
Success: \\DX21MSFILE\MP3S\P\Pretty Poison\1987 - Catch Me (I'm Falling) (Single)\US 12-INCH\A1 - Catch Me (I'm Falling) (12'' Mix).mp3
However, in the same log under the normal scanning entries, it find it just fine:

Code: Select all

Success: \\DX21MSFILE\MP3S\E\Expos..\1986 - Come Go With Me (Single)\B2 - Come Go With Me (Radio Mix).mp3
Success: \\DX21MSFILE\MP3S\S\Stevie B\1998 - Best Of Stevie B\01 - Dreamin... Of Love.mp3
Success: \\DX21MSFILE\MP3S\P\Pretty Poison\1987 - Catch Me (I'm Falling) (Single)\US 12-INCH\A1 - Catch Me (I'm Falling) (12'' Mix).mp3
