Few months ago I posted at the AHK forums a small test script to prove Unicode tags reading capability under all Windows versions. In the mean time I updated it locally to allow its usage on systems that lack unicows.dll (which is only required for Win9x systems).
As I found it fit as an example in a recent reply to some poster there, I remembered Trout might take advantage of it too, since it's already using BASS and tags reading.
I've tested the script in both Windows98SE and XP-SP2 with positive results but only one test mp3 file with Japanese tags was available; anyone willing, please test and provide feedback whether it works for other Unicode languages as well.
Please note that in order to display Unicode text, the OS must have at least one Unicode font installed. The script uses the cRichEdit
wrapper by corrupt
, the BASS
wrappers by k3ph
