Hello,

I'm having issues with songs in playlists with special characters (specifically �) in either version 7.6.2 or 7.7.2. The last time I believe my playlists worked properly was in 7.5.4. Has anything material changed or is this a common fix for this?

I manage library and playlists through MediaMonkey (on Windows 7) and I'm I'm running LMS on Windows HomeServer 2011.

Thanks,
Phil

There was a discussion of this way back, basically you need to save the playlists UTF-8 or change the name of the file itself (not the meta data) to exclude that character. Here is the older thread on it, my solution was to use the program Playlist Creator to create & save my playlists that have any special characters.

Rayman1701,

Thanks - I'll look into this when I return home.

Interesting - none of those tricks worked. But unchecking the "Use Unicode (UTF-8 encoding) for M3U playlists" option in Media Monkey 4+ did.

Thanks
