ape files with unicode tags and filesnames in winamp
i have some ape cd images with chinese unicode tags and filenames. when i load the cuesheet (cue player 0.57c) for each, winamp's playlist editor shows a whole list of tracks named similarly as "-AD-2D" or something, skips through every track and doesn't play any of them.
if i run the ape image directly, it plays in winamp, but the tag appears as "???" for every field. however, hitting "alt + 3" brings up the tag window with the characters shown correctly.
after trying for hours, i have to assume cue player is not working right. also, something is broken when it comes to unicode-tagged ape files when loaded in winamp.
the kicker is that after those hours, i tried the above in foobar, and everything worked! but i really like the media library feature of winamp, especially now with album art, so it's no questions i want to stick with winamp.
unicode-tagged flac files appear in winamp with proper characters, but i can't have apl with flac (or at least i can't find how to) when i just want to run a single track off the image.
i also prefer it if the cuesheet is external and it keeps all the cd text.
is anybody in a similar predicament and found a way to all the above?
