Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] UTF-8 issues still present

Ok, I was wrong.   I just thought I'd pipe in with my latest discovery. 

I managed to find out where in MP3::Tag the encoding type is getting
set, along with the tag version.  After enabling encoding types, I can
save the encoding type as chr(3), as the id3v2 documentation says, and
rhythmbox can properly read the tags as utf8.  I had to change the
version from 2.3 to 2.4 before easytag (id3lib) could see the utf8 text
(apparently, 2.3 with the \x03 encoding type causes an error), but it
worked fine until I re-saved the files, presumably knocking the tag
version back down to 2.3.

So...  Problem solved, to a point, anyway...
