Exiftool and filenames with unicode characters


Recommended Posts



this topic is only to inform you, that Exiftool version > 9.79 is able to handle filenames with also unicode characters on windows systems by itself.


Please update to latest Exiftool version.

Instead of sending the windows file-short-name to Exiftool, you can send the filename UTF-8 encoded to Exiftool.

But you have to give the option: -charset filename=utf8


Thanks in advance

Best regards
