View Full Version : Plugins not utf8?

I just wanted to confirm the crashing problem with Shoutcast (yes it does
crash). And I found another problem: strings do not seem to be utf8,
umlauts do not display correctly. I then realized that it's the same
problem with rssnews, rescan, live365... My stringeditor seems to be the
only one working correctly - I don't store strings in the .pm file :-).

This is strange as the files seem to be correctly stored as utf8.

This may have something to do with perl not knowing they are UTF8. Since it's
not an explit open(FH, ':utf8', 'file.txt');
