    It works for me so perhaps this is a compile or OS related problem?

    I'm afraid I also see problems there: the client sees UTF-8 codes that are UTF-8 encoded again.
    Check for example files.

    See the mediatomb-utf8.png image.

    I'm working completely in UTF-8…:

    See the mp3 file.

    I have my doubts about how the data is stored in the database, see the db file.
    See also the config file.

    With mysql I get the same effect.

    Oh bugger, I see it now… I incorrectly assumed that id3v2 would produce correct tags, it doesn't.
    It happily puts UTF-8 content into the MP3-file, which is possible with ID3 v 2.4, but apparently it doesn't put
    the code in there to mark it as such. Therefore the clients (none of them supporting 2.4 yet either) assume the
    content is ordinary ISO-8859-1 - sigh.
    So apparently I should change the content to either ISO-8859-1, or UCS-2, which are both in ID3v2.3
