This is a problem I've been seeing for some time now:
I have a server on an internal network that is broadcasting a program using Shoutcast v1.5.0, which can be picked up by a number of Winamp client machines using v2.62 on the same network.
Some of the song titles are in French, which uses accented characters (é, è, à, ç, ô, etc.). These accented characters are not displayed properly on the Winamp client side - they are replaced by something resembling a 'y' (ASCII 255???).
Note that these characters are displayed perfectly on the machine sending the program, even in the scrolling taskbar button. It is at the receiving side that they do not appear correctly.
I'm guessing that they are probably sent that way, making this a Shoutcast issue rather than a Winamp issue, but I didn't see a similar board under Shoutcast to post the issue to.
