I believe it being mentioned a while back that this was a limitation of
VLC.. I filed a bug against VLC and they simply said that you had to use a
UTF-8 locale and closed it.   VLC team basically said they weren't going to
deal with the old non-UTF locales anymore.

Try switching to a UTF-8 or UTF-16 locale and try again.  Or perhaps try
the GSTEAMER backend?
