[MPlayer-users] Dumpstream with French Characters in folder path fails

I am having an issue where if I use  -dumpstream -dumpfile 'filename' where
filename has french characters in the *folder path* then mplayer fails with
a message "Cannot open dump file".

If there are no french characters in the folder name then it works fine.

If there are french characters in the file name but not the folder path
then it works fine.


//This works
-dumpfile "C:\Levis\test.mpg"

//This fails with Cannot open Dump File
-dumptfile "C:\Lévis\test.mpg"

//This works
-dumptfile "C:\Levis\ Lévis.mpg"

In tests above all folder paths already exist.

Any ideas?
