Unicode has been introduced officially in Winamp 5.30 (or maybe 5.25 beta), current version is 5.32

the Unicode support in Winamp is in:
main Winamp window
playlist window
plugins bundled with Winamp

the Media Library actually doesn't support the Unicode

for more informations read here: is it still fully not supported for unicode?

bye

yes, i know the media library doesn't do unicode, but even the main window and playlist editor show them as unknown characters.
