We are using lighttpd as a http server to stream video from PC to a network media player.

Please see the thread:

The result shows that only files with English name are seen from the media player.

Does lighttpd support file names with Chinese char-set?

i am pretty sure we dont care much about the charset of the filenames. but does your mediaplayer support them?

what charset are you using to addresse those files?
are the filenames on disk in the same charset?
do you properly encode the filename for the url?
does accessing the file directly without the mediaplayer work?

My PC has NFS mount to the media player and also lighttpd as http server.

From PC, when I use Firefox to browse a html file, Firefox shows the content is encoded in UTF-8.

The file name should be ????[NHK??????--??.html in Chinese, but the address bar in Firefox shows "%5B%E6%97%A5%E6%9C%AC%5D%5B%E7%BA%AA%E5%BD%95%5D%5BNHK%E9%AB%98%E6%B8%85%E7%94%BB%E9%9D%A2%E7%B3%BB%E5%88%97--%E9%BB%84%E5%B1%B1%5D".

There are many apps using UTF-8 encoding for PCH A-100. It works well for English file name and content. So A-100 should support UTF-8 already.

If you get a "Not found", i think it is a problem with your filesystem.
