Winamp not saving playlist with Japanese files correctly

When I save a playlist with Japanese characters, they don't save right.

For example

Winamp saves an entree in a playlist as
code:

\Downloads\Scarlet Weather Rhapsody OST\Scarlet Weather Rhapsody OST\02-02 ?????? - ?????.ogg



When it SHOULD be
code:

\Downloads\Scarlet Weather Rhapsody OST\Scarlet Weather Rhapsody OST\02-02 あきやまうに - 東方妖恋談.ogg




My computer is fully capable of displaying the correct file names. They just don't get saved to the playlist file correctly.

Oh, I should probably add, if I manually correct the file name in the playlist, it will open fine.

Make sure you shave it as a .M3U8 playlist, as PLS and M3U does not support Unicode (International) characters.
