BSPlayer fails with special characters in filenames
1 Attachment(s)

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

I'd like to know if this issue will be fixed?

I can add that I will not change the names of my files as they are used by my media center with the current names.
I really hope you fix the problem with special characters.

[] and other special characters should work without a problem.
Tested with [] and other chars.
Something else is causing this. Is this file playable from a different player?

I have to apologize.
It turns out it have to do with the rights on the share, MAYBE combined with those characters.
I haven't pinpointed the exact cause, but now know that videos fail if my share have only NTFS read rights. They work when I give Full Control under NTFS.
In both cases I set everyone to full control on share level.

In other words: NTFS Read rights is NOT enough.

The question now is: why? Why does bsplayer require more than read access to read the videos?
I honestly don't like that I have to open for full control, so if anyone can tell me exactly what rights is required, then I will be happy.
