Hi, I have a problem
Minimserver doesn't scan folders whose names contain umlauts.
For example, mconnect control point does not see the folder
Ståle Storløkken - 2019 - The Haze Of Sleeplessness {HUBRO CD2616}.
Only after renaming the folder to Stale Storlokken - 2019 - The Haze Of Sleeplessness {HUBRO CD2616}
the folder becomes available for playback.

That's a weird one. What about filenames? i.e. normal folder, but the tracks ha umlauts, do they scan properly?

Yes exactly.
Inside folders with a normal name, umlaut files are scanned normally.

Can't find any configuration options for this. Can you do some testing for me? Switch over to MPD, and do a file scan, do those contents show up?

During the Snakeoil install, what language did you pick?

With MPD and Squeezelite there are no problems. Only with Minimserver.

Language I chose English.
