meta data encoding format when "title streaming" enabled

Using Playit Live with Internet Broadcast plugin connected to a Shoutcast server. In the plugin "title streaming" is enabled.

The meta data (artist and title) for some of mp3 source files are in a RTL language.

The issue is that this meta data
 appears correctly in some apps but not in others. More specifically, in some apps appears as Western characters; i.e., gibberish.

Like to know what character encoding format is being used by 
Internet Broadcast plugin for meta dataIncase it's not UTF-8, is there any way to change it to UTF-8?

Thank you.

Hi Mo,

Updates are sent with UTF8 encoding. If you are saying that the Metadata appears correctly in some apps and not others this would indicate a decoding issue with certain apps.
