Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I occasionally stream radio stations from Germany and it appears that there is an encoding issue in Rhythmbox as umlauts are not displayed properly in this pop-up bubble in the screen corner.

As I can not influence the tags it would be nice if Rhythmbox could handle this for me/ handle multiple encodings

In the screenshot 'hört' becomes a combination of an A with a bar and a paragraph sign

This is an issue with Rhythmbox, so I recommend you report it on Launchpad - bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rhythmbox . –  Steve Kroon Sep 7 '12 at 7:54
Will do, thanks –  Martin H Sep 7 '12 at 17:47
A bug report is now in place (bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rhythmbox/+bug/1048594) but it seems as there is no activity at the moment.... –  Martin H Sep 25 '12 at 15:28
Basically, all you can do now, is give the bug report an occasional bump, and perhaps offer to help with diagnosing the issue further. Until there are more people affected by this, it's not likely to get a lot of attention from the devs, since it's not a critical issue. –  Steve Kroon Oct 8 '12 at 8:41
