This is strange. It works fine here with WinXP SP2 and 
vlc-0.9.0-svn-20061115-1056-win32.zip - I can open files containing
a mix of western, eastern and even cyrillic characters with no problems 
at all.

I've tested this in vlc-0.9.0-svn-20061116-0001-win32.zip
Unfortunately it crashes VLC immediately after I click OK in the Open

Could you please tell us what exact version of Windows are you using and
in what environment you build VLC ? What is you version of wxwidgets and
are you building it in unicode mode? Could you please also test the two
nightlty builds I mentioned as well as the latest 0.8.6 branch nightly
and report how they work for you?

	Thanks & kind regards,
