Bug#336921: gnome-media: Automatic convertion to UTF-8

Package: gnome-media
Version: 2.8.0-0.4
Severity: wishlist

This is probably something for upstream developers. I listen to a geat
deal of Greek CDs. However, I want to listen to them while using the
computer or my ogg player so I use goobox/sound juicer to rip the CDs to
my hard disc. The problem is that many of them are entered in freedb in
ISO-8859-7 encoding. This is really annoying as I have to retype all the
tracks into UTF-8. Couldn't cddb-salve2 in gnome-media automatically
convert from an encoding to UTF-8 if one had chosen the this option in
the preferences/gconf?

Anyway this is just a wish, but it would make life easier and the
software more userfriendly...

Thanks in advance
