Limits to UTF-8 Support

Return to Corrections Table of Contents

SUMMARY: Media Control Platform requires all characters in filenames to be encoded using UTF-8. (UTF-8 is a variable-width encoding for the Unicode character set, and the default-by-concensus for the world wide web.)

Also note that:

  • Windows does not support UTF-8 local file names explicitly, but UTF-8 characters can be used (even if they do not display well on Windows).
  • This does not impact UTF-8 coming from non-local filenames.
