View Full Version : playing music file names with accents

2008-06-28, 17:19
I am playing my Squeezebox by sending commands through the http interface on port 9000 using wget.

With Slimserver 6.5.4 on an XP Pro machine it works really well - even when the music file titles have obscure characters with accents etc.

I now want to run SqueezeCenter 7 on a Vista machine, but any unusual characters are giving me problems. wget is sending identical commands to SqueezeCenter 7, but any file name with an accent just doesn't get played. Any file name without an accent plays perfectly.

File names with accents play fine when I select the file when viewing SqueezeCenter 7 via the web interface

Anyone got any ideas? Is the http interface different in some way between 6.5.4 and 7.0.1?
