View Full Version : Special characters

I tried searching the archives for this but couldn't find anything
relevant. I use iTunes on Windows XP for my music database. It has no
problems with albums and songs with "special" characters (i.e., 8-bit
character codes) like "C'est bien là, n'est-ce pas" by "Callas, Gedda,
Guiot, Massard; Prêtre". However entries like these just do not show up
in the Slimserver list. When I change the above to "C'est bien la,
n'est-ce pas" by "Callas, Gedda, Guiot, Massard; Pretre" it appears in
the Slimserver list. So while there is an easy workaround, it'd be nice
if this worked.

Apologies if there's an obvious bug filed for this, but I couldn't find
it with the bugzilla search.

This sounds like you are NOT using iTunes? (correct?) I think the mp3
tag code has some problems with unicode characters. Would you be able
to send the mp3 to me, I have previously worked on 8-bit stuff?
