Enable utf8 filenames in MythVideo

This patch prevents filename conversion attempts to 8-bit encoding before calling myth_system. This enables playback of files with non-ascii filenames (tested with Cyrillic/Russian?).

(In [14104]) Don't convert the external player command to the local 8bit encoding before passing it to myth_system.

myth_system subsequently converts it to utf8 and then to ascii before execution which seems to cause problems for strings previously converted to the local 8bit.

Fixes #3499
