Character encoding bugs and workaroundJanuary 22, 2015
- "Cannot convert from locale" printed to stderr
- Failure to read song information from certain ID3 tags
- A segmentation fault when saving playlists
To work around these bugs, go to the File menu and open the Settings window. In the Playlist category, under Compatibility, set Fallback character encodings to
UTF-8,ISO-8859-1 (in addition to any other character encodings you may already be using).
The bugs will be fixed in the upcoming 3.6 release, but you should still keep
ISO-8859-1 (or some other 8-bit character encoding) as a fallback to avoid problems.
