HB fails to scan BD-iso file with non-ASCII filenames

Post by tromsoe »

First of all, many thanks to everybody who works on this fine piece of SW.

Description of problem or question:

It seems some internal components are not able to handle BD-iso files with UTF characters in their filenames.
Is this a known restriction?

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):

Use an arbitrary BD-iso file and rename it to e.g. Smørrebrød.iso

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):


Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

Windows 1909

The relevant snippet of HandBrake Activity Log follows

Code: Select all
