Tried this but didn’t work.

The XML seems to be UTF8 encoded (at least it tells this in the header) but I do not know, what the the encoding of the mp3 is on the Linux filesystem.

A file named
äöüÄÖÜ
is displayed in octal codes on the linux box as:
ls -b
äöü?204?226?234

but on the mounted share on the Mac as:
ls -b
a314210o314210u314210A314210O314210U314210

IMHO octal 204, 226 and 234 don’t seem to correspond to any encoding table!?!

So without knowing to which encoding I should convert the XML, it is unlikely that it will work 🙁
