    The same problem still exists when the video file names are in Greek

    What problem are you referring to ? displaying the characters or being able to open the files with wird characters ?

    The files won't open (yet) because MPC doesn't support foreign charsets on playlists.. it won't load them nor save them.. that's why I'm thinking of writing simple video player to use with RR. It woudn't have as many features as MPC but it would definitely support those foreign characters...

    Well Guino, the problem is as follows:
    1. The file does not load if it has Greek characters in the files name.
    2. If the file name contains Greek characters it shows up OK.
    3. If I run MPC as a standalone program (without RR) and select the file containing Greek characters then it plays OK (This same file does not play from within RR).

    Yeah.. I know about that .. try this: open MPC (outside RR) and click View->Playlist. Now drag a few files to your playlist (with greek chars) then right click on the playlist's bar and select "save...". Save it as a m3u file (the simplest one). Close MPC and re-open it. Click to open plailist (or file/open) and select the playlist you made.. you will see that MPC will not open the files.. if you look at your playlist file you'll see that all greek characters have been removed from it..

    What is going on is that RR is working fine, but MPC is screwing up.. that's why I have decided to add a built-in video player to RR. so that this is not going to happen anymore and so that MPC is an option.

    Tolisn, please try the built in video player for your "greek" named files.. I've tested it here and it seems to work well (unlike MPC). Just make sure you don't disable Internationalization and use the Built In Player.. also you should either use "System" or "Greek" for the locale setting in RR.
