thanks for the reply.
I am using “mp3tag” for generating playlists. In option I have checked “ID3v2.4 UTF-8”. Then, I have generate a new playlist.
But nothing is changed. The Soundbridge do not play the playlist. Moreover, the umlauts are not shown at the display.
It *sounds* like those are in unicode fomat, not utf8. If it works on windows but not on the slug, that’s almost certainly the cause.
Also, it appears that the encoding refers to the encoding of the mp3 tags, not necessarily the playlists.
Try opening the file in a text editor and re-saving it as utf8.
