Because it's not about preference but logic.

So what is the logic? Some media-players can handle UTF-8, others not. Some TV's van handle UTF-8, others not.

I guess your preference/logic depends on the hardware you use.

But UTF-8 is unicode

Or, add a feature on the website to convert files from windows-1252 to UTF-8 before downloading the file

I pretty agree with you.

UTF-8 avoid lot of errors, like bad tags or fantasy colors.

Even it's easy to convert any str to UTF-8, it should be the standard (and it's the standard for most subtitles sites).

Hello,

Any news on this ?

It would be cool if Addic7ed's staff could take a look at this topic and consider my suggestion.

Thanks !
