[bsplayer 2.68] [Windows 8.1] unicode filenames can't be open
Current lang for non-Unicode programs is set to Bulgarian (cyrillic).
Example file name: Основи на уеб технологиите.mp4
If renamed with latin chars, everything works fine - the player plays the file.
The problem was not present with the bsplayer 2.66.
Windows 8+BS Player+Unicode=Problems
For those who cannot open unicode filename, try this:
1. Open Regedit.
2. Go to : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\FileSystem
3. Look for: NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation
4. Change value to 0.
5. Copy again the file you want to open. Try to open this file.
6. If the problem persist, restart your PC. and retry step 5.
It's a windows 8 update bug.
Not working... still
Unfortunately with me your solution doesn't work.
My Win is installed on the SSD and the files are located on the HD.
I realized that it works if the file path have no unicode names either.
Does not matter where the file is. it is file name or the file path that makes the problem. Even on 2.70 version over win10.
if there is only unicode filename. it should works setting the NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation value to 0 and copying the file to any place to regenarate short filenames. That is the real problem, i think.
some apps needs the old short filename system.
check your file path and change it to non-unicode names.
