|Summary||0007705: Playlists: Handling UTF8 Playlists|
|Description||It looks that some devices do not correctly read non ASCII chars in filenames when reading M3U playlists. Yhet either needs to be written with BOM character or configurable (DropBox: Plain M3U|EXINF M3U|UTF8 M3U|UTF8 M3U8)|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Fixed in build||1384|
||Perhaps add 'Format: <format list>' to the Device Profile > Options > Playlist options ?|
Fixed in build 1384.
- I fixed it by replacing the old Playlist option 'Use 8.3 filenames', which actually didn't really do what the name suggested, but created pretty useless utf8-like m3u format understood by MM only. The new checkbox 'Use Unicode (UTF-8 encoding) for M3U playlists' used already existing and localized string and does exactly what the title suggests, i.e. writes UTF-8 m3u playlist (in case it's necessary, i.e. there aren't 7-bit ASCII characters only).
