tag 567957 + upstream wontfix
thanks

   Hello,

By design, VLC can only handle UTF-8 encoded file names. To access file
systems in other encoding, either the filesystem driver must do the
conversion (a good option for VFAT especially), or the locale (LC_CTYPE or
LANG) must be set to the corresponding encoding. This latter option will be
removed in VLC 1.2.

Debian and most Linux distributions defaults to UTF-8 and there are
absolutely no plans to support anything else in VLC upstream.
