#10253 closed Bug Report - General (Fixed)

Cannot play songs with non-English filenames

Reported by: yiannividalis@… Owned by: paulh
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.25
Component: Plugin - MythMusic Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I can no longer play songs that have non English characters in the filename. I can choose them in Mythmusic but I think the player is looking for them not in utf-8 encoding.

The extract of the error is:

---- " Σφάλμα αποκωδικοποιητή" means "Decoder error"
---- The "2012-01-11 19:35:41.952968 E" line reports the correct filename, but
---- the "2012-01-11 19:35:42.128032 E" line shows, well.... it's not Greek even to me ;)

Before I opened the ticket I had scanned the music library twice, to make sure no folder changes were causing the problem. No results.

Since reporting it, I updated to version c29b91c, and I rescanned for music and the problem is gone.

However, the commits related to mythmusic don't mention anything about file scanner so, was it simply fixed by restarting the frontend/backend between builds? If this is the case, I was under the impression that changes to the music library were effective immediately after scanning (I hadn't restarted the frontend after scanning for music files).

Please, feel free to close this ticket.

FWIW, this was likely fixed by 14101d06a , and though your initial version info gives a later revision, something prevented it from being used (frontend didn't restart properly or something?). Now that you've restarted the frontend (again?), it's picked up the new libraries, so you're actually using the updated version. (The only reason I didn't mention the change when the ticket was opened was because the version info reported a later revision.)
