The support for system codepage encodings has been dropped (because of Unicode).
But I guess unfortunately, the freedb has lots of entries in local encodings (tho officially not supported! UTF-8 should be used.)
Maybe Florian wants to add an option to choose the encoding for freedb..
I'm pretty sure there should be an option (or action?) which allow user to read the tags in a system default encoding to be able to save them back in Unicode (smth like 'Convert tags from local default encoding to Unicode').
Currently it is impossible to convert any of the available tags in local encodings to Unicode just because Mp3Tag can't read them properly...
Many other Unicode-enabled software (Foobar2000 as an example) works well with Unicode and with system default encoding at the same time.
Thank you very much, it works good now (read and write). I think this option (Decode ISO-8859-1 tags using system codepage) should be enabled by default, since if it's disabled, tags are still converted to unicode, but incorrectly.
The problem is just Winamp, but I can wait for unicode version or find another one, since I don't like it much.
More important - before I'll convert all my songs/tags to unicode - what about mp3 and DVD players, will unicode tags look good/correct there?
