And as I described, it does work with just one characters exception. You could say that the Media Player have a character flaw!
And I do believe this issue is something that have appeared somewhere around the 1.3-1.5 time frame, since I don’t remember seeing this before. And when the issue appeared I just assumed that the subtitle file was bad, but then I could see the pattern, I’ts only the capital ‘Ö’ that’s missing.
Then I could verify that that the same .srt file contained the right character, both by checkin it out with a text editor and by playing in VLC.
I have attached a small test file for your enjoyment! 8)
