UTF-8 and file:/// URL support

One thing that came up with developing the file browser plugin is the varied support for file:/// URLs and platform-dependent UTF-8 encoding. This likely goes for direct-file invocation as well as playlist-contained references. Here grouped by samples:

App version platform file:/// UTF-8

Wmplayer * Windows 7 no syscp
AIMP * Windows 7 no syscp
MPC * Windows 7 no syscp
