    Do either Winamp or Media Player fully support MP3s with Unicode filenames (under XP)? I have MP3s with Han characters in their filenames: Winamp cannot play these files at all, and while Media Player can play individual files, it cannot open a Unicode asx file. Is there a way to fully support premade file lists with unicode MP3s?

    What version of WinAmp have you got? Its rumoured that version 3 can play them, mind you the only stuff I can find so far is Win2000.
