[icecast] Ices2; Metadata and special chars

I have the same problem with status.xsl. Special characters such as “é” are
truncated.

 

Is there any solution?

Cheers,

 

MAX

I reported this several months ago.  I was using Oddcast to send and Winamp

to listen.  Winamp showed the title truncated at any extended character.
