Winamp 5.3 Released thread
First, get the updated ml_local.dll
Fire up Winamp, go to:
1. Prefs > Media Library > Local Media
Uncheck "use library title info for playlist item formatting"
2. Prefs > General Preferences > Playlist
Uncheck "use skin or lang pack font"
Select an appropriate font from the drop-down list, eg. Arial Unicode MS
3. Prefs > Skins > Modern Skins > Font Rendering tab
You might have to uncheck "use freetype internal ttf renderer"
See the screenshot in my post here
for other settings.
You should now have support for unicode titles in the Modern skin Main window and Playlist window.
For Classic skins, the relevant settings are #1 & #2 above, and:
Prefs > Skins > Classic Skins, uncheck "use skinned font for main window title display" (which should be unchecked by default, but might be still checkmarked if you upgraded from some old version).
Note, you won't be able to see unicode characters in the Local Media section of the Media Library, because as explained in the 5.3 Released Notes, it still isn't implemented*. Likewise for the text in the taskbar icon.
* implemented for 5.33
