I am a newer for FLAC. I am using FLAC to convert wave files into flac. But if the filename or directory contians Chinese, the tools told me "Error: can not open input file F:\audio\---------------".

FLAC does not support UNICODE? I need to re-complile the FLAC project?

I need to make a FAQ out of this but haven't yet... the basic problem is windows' implementation of unicode filenames, which can only be supported via windows APIs (non-portable), and is different for different versions of windows. I searched quite a bit and even major projects like python have rejected supporting unicode filenames because of the complexity of it (at least when I looked).

unicode filenames on pretty much any other system are not a problem.

Egor's solution for windows is best I think.
