An other information :
in my database, i have "Français" in videocountry, but when i show it
with mysql command, i see "Franais" and in videofilter dialog i can see
I i take a look of metadata.cpp, when inserting country in databse i
don't use QString::fromUtf8(), but for example title us it.
To resume, i suppose that those have problem with special characters in
metadata don't have with videofilter , andthose don't have trouble with
metadata, have in videofilter ...
How to do in order that all users are happy ?
