Mythweb video module doesn't display video name with non english character

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: xris
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: Plugin - MythWeb Version: 0.21
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I haven't tested it with other characters, but the character 'é' causes the video name to not be displayed in mythvideo. I've confirmed that the video name exists in the videometadata table.

The specific name that is causing issues is "Léon (1994)".

I can't confirm if the same issue happens within mythtv itself. Will check later.

When browsing to "Léon (1994)" with the mythvideo plugin of mythtv, the title displays, but the "é" is replaced by two box characters.

I can also confirm that this happens with other non english characters.

How was this added to the database? Via a 'blessed' method (mythfrontend?) or via some script? If you edit it in mythweb and replace it with the correct char, does it stick or does it break again?
