Comment (by stax76):

 I made a test using a sample file Bär.mkv (German Umlaut) on CP 1252 (West
 Europe) and saved the avs file not as CP 1252 but UTF-8 without BOM,
 VirtualDub2, MPC-BE and ffmpeg are still able to open this, even though
 avs files are supposed to be encoded in the CP of the system, CP 1252

 I think it can be closed.

 But I also think ffmpeg should use a Unicode manifest to enforce UTF-8,
 there might be some complaints then, it might break some applications etc.

 There is clearly a new trend for enforcing UTF-8, see here:


 If it won't be supported I guess I will patch it somehow.
