While of course FATE should be fixed, I think the MOV demuxer should
convert the parts where latin1 is usually stored in the file to UTF-8,
I did this already for one other field (encoder name or so), but it
seems it applies to more.
Or are those fields supposed to be UTF-8 and the file is just broken?
