Not changing the default behaviour is better, but it is still a step in the
wrong direction.

Set the sub_charenc options to a reasonable value. I can not help you more
unless you explain exactly how you get the subtitles and what you intend to
do with them after decoding, but I am pretty sure that the current API is
useable (while incomplete, missing auto-detection) and you are misusing it.
