Default BSPlayer fails with special characters in filenames


I just bought BSPlayer for my android devices and I think you have done a great work.

Sadly it turns out that it refuses to play most of my video files due to the way I have named them.

For some reason BSPlayer can't read files with the characters [] in the filename.
I find this very odd as those characters are included in the BASIC ASCII table, so would have thought that everything supported those these days.
To be honest then Unicode UTF8 is a minimum requirement in these global days.

I attached a screenshot where you can see I have made different copies of the same file to test what goes wrong.
I generally name files like this:
Movename (year) [format].mkv
