Playlist and accented letters

I have some playlist with folders and songs having that kind of letter, and Poweramp does not recognize them.
If I look at the file structure, I can find those folders and songs and play them.

Anything I can do ?
Thank you for any idea... (I cannot rename all folders and files, got really too many)

You need to ensure your playlists are in UTF-8 (Unicode) format, with a .M3U8 extension, otherwise the encoding for non-standard characters may not work, especially between different platforms. Just because they look the same on-screen doesn't mean the underlying character set is identical.

PC extended ASCII character set mappings for filenames are sometimes different to Linux ( Android) copies. And from a playlist point of view, the filename must match exactly. Unicode text is the best solution.

Try a text editor like Notepad++ on your PC to adjust them if necessary.
