Do you mean using single-byte characters in the range 0x80-0xff or
ffmpeg is written in 'c' and uses standard libc string routines (i.e.strcmp,
strlen), so all 8-bit characters should work. I wouldn't expect
multi-byte/wide characters to work, nor for ffmpeg to be easily changed to
do so unless libc automagically DoesThe-Right-Thing (and I don't think it will).
Safer to stick with 8-bit characters.
