Cannot drag and drop a mp3 file with unicode codepoints

Post by frogbone » Sun Sep 26, 2021 9:27 am

Hi all,

i've got an Audio CD with Japanese song titles and after ripping the songs to disc, i tried to drag and drop a mp3 file named '棚橋 信仁 - FRIENDLY.mp3' with unicode codepoints within the directory name as well as the file name. In the file name there are 4 japanese codepoints: 26842, 27211, 20449 and 20161 which are all codepoints of the Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP) which means no surrogates are neccessary (utf-16 in memory). Some software can deal with the BMP but not with codepoints of the higher planes, that all nead surrogates to encode the codepoint, because the codepoints are beyond the word range (> 65535/0xFFFF).

When i rename directory and filename and get rid of the japanese codepoints, drag & drop works at a glance and an audio track will be created.
I have used Mixcraft 8 Recording Studio (64 Bit).

Try it yourself by unzipping the attached zip file using unzip here.
I had to shorten the song and decreased quality in order to keep the attachment small.

Hey Now,

This is a known issue. No unicode.
Rename.
Stay in tune, Mark

Thanks for the reply, i didn't know it's a known issue. But "No unicode" is not true for every context, german ä, ö, ü, Ä, Ö, Ü as well as ß do work fine in the text strings when choosing german as the Mixcraft language and these codepoints are all beyond ASCII e. g. higher than 127.
