Fix Charakter Encoding in Now Playing Plugin

Reported by: -=thor=- Owned by: daelstorm
Priority: trivial Milestone: Release 1.3.0
Component: nicotine Version: 1.2.10
Keywords: plugin extension encoding Cc:


Language specific charakters do not work in the now playing plugin. There should be a possibility, like it's possible in rooms or in general, to switch to another encoding (not just UTF-8, though it would be cool if everyone used it).

I doubt this is possible. I think it just displays it in what your room is set to use. Please enlighten us quinox?

Mmmm, I would assume the message to the chatroom is encoded properly but that the problem lies with reading the tags (the input). We should convert input using the user's locale to get python unicode strings, but I'm sure there are a dozen players out there that output in a fixed encoding to begin with so those would need to be treated differently. It's possible to fix this, will look at this after we restructure the plugin system.
