Happy New Year :)

I've created a new build for you to test. It does not convert the
command line to UTF-8 anymore but leaves it just like it
is. Furthermore, Haali suggested to me that I use "GetCommandLineW()" in
mkvmerge and parse that myself instead of using the "argc/argv"
parameters that the program gets handed because Windows obviously does
some charset reencoding for argv itself. This I've done, and it does
work for me on Windows XP and Windows 98 with German "Umlaute" in the
file name. Granted, mkvmerge's output under command.com did not keep the
Umlaute intact, but running it from mmg was fine. The files created were
identical in both cases.

Could you please download and test
for me? Thanks.


If Darl McBride was in charge, he'd probably make marriage
unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
