Dear Maintainer,

there some problems with utf8 files...

i not use recent Debian versions, i used directly Devuan,
and respect Debian squeeze i noted that by example the file:
@El universo últimos descubrimientos.mp4@
are displayed as
@El universo ?@ltimos descubrimientos.mp4@

ok that not so bad.. but the problerm not end here,
if i try to added that file to smplayer, smplayer :
1) if the file name are added to list or opened, does not play
2) sometimes file name are not displayed in file browser event i
specified "all files" in filter

this NOT HAPPENED in Debin squeeze, but i noted happened in Debian jeesie
(i never used the wheeze and i now use only the Devuan)

i set correctly the locales to es_VE.utf8 and also generated
en_US.utf8 and es_ES.utf8,
also install all related packages for Spanish including dictionaries

IMPORTANT: i later switch to en_US.utf8 and problems still persis,
i used devuan 1.0.0 final stable but due seems are this problem
inherits from Debian
maybe in the final 1.0.0 stable still persist
