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?

Hi, currently flac tools do not support unicode filenames. But you can work-around this limitation with this script:
QUOTE (flac.cmd)
@echo off
set encoder="C:\Program Files\flac-1.1.2-win\bin\flac.exe"
set tempfile=%random%%random%%random%%random%
type "%1" | %encoder% -8 - -o "%~d1%~p1%tempfile%"
ren "%~d1%~p1%tempfile%" "%~n1.flac"

Copy this to a text file and rename it to "flac.cmd", change the path to flac.exe (marked with green color). Then you will be able to use flac.cmd like this:


F:\audio>flac.cmd 你好世界.wav

this will encode to F:\audio\你好世界.flac output file.

F:\>flac.cmd \audio\你好世界.wav

this will also encode to F:\audio\你好世界.flac
