Greek language becomes incorrect in the playlist.

Winamp have a problem by showing greek language in the playlist.
In the beginning it looks correct, but over time/after certains amount of days the names of the tracks becomes incorrect (see pictures).

Hello.

We can't reproduce htis problem.

Are you using Winamp 5.9, or an older version?

Are you maybe saving the playlist to .m3u (ansi) instead of .m3u8 (utf-8 playlist) and then reloading it?

That's strange because Winamp has been doing it for a long time.

I'm using the latest version that has been posted lately (59.9999 R.C.1).
The playlist is saved on M3U.

You need to save as M3U8 not M3U

M3U is ANSI only and doesn't support international characters.
