It does not have to. M3U are specified to be in Latin-1, and M3U8 in UTF-8. As 
a special exception, VLC allows UTF-8 in M3U as autodetection is easy and 
fairly reliable.

To the contrary, discriminating variants of ISO-8859-x character set is not 
generally feasible in an automatic fashion. Using the HTTP Content-Type 
charset attribute is not supported by the VLC architecture. Also it would be 
quite helpless as the web browsers typically save the playlist file to disk 
before feeding the path to VLC - at that point the character set parameter is 
lost.
