GStreamer | gstreamer (core) | Ver: 0.8.6

           Summary: Gstreamer dont read tags correctly
           Product: GStreamer
           Version: 0.8.6
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: gstreamer (core)
        AssignedTo: gstreamer-bugs at lists.sourceforge.net
        ReportedBy: xuzo at ikossi.org
         QAContact: gstreamer-bugs at lists.sourceforge.net

Tags encoded in cyrillic dont show properly, tested with:
gst-launch-0.8 -t filesrc location=~/Desktop/cirilictags.mp3 ! spider ! appl
ication/x-gst-metadata ! fakesink
My terminal is in utf8 encoding.

Company (at #gstreamer) sais that the error may be caused by the fact that the
tags are written in ID3v1.

I don't know that, but the file that causes the error can be downloaded from

Applications like totem (using the gstreamer backend) or eina (my app) fail to
show the tags

Anyway, mpg321 shows them properly, using a function called
id3_ucs4_latin1duplicate from libid3
