unicode output for imdb.pl

Description

When fetching IMDB data for a title the imdb.pl outputed the data in nonunicode format which resulted in garbled letters in some titles. This one-liner forces the output of the script to be utf8, which is the encoding used in the database.

(In [11101]) The code in VideoManager? now expects utf8; all video info grabbers now output utf8.

Removed some tabs in ofdb.pl that made it harder to read with a sane tab size. Updated ofdb.pl to look for " instead of ' as the site appears to be using them.

Closes #2354

Thanks go to Pekka Jaaskelainen for the initial patch.
