Hello, When I use FMOD_UNICODE and i try to load an url, i receive FMOD_ERR_FILE_NOTFOUND. If i try using an existing file it works.
Also if i do not use FMOD_UNICODE, the url is loading fine.
This is the code that returns FMOD_ERR_FILE_NOTFOUND.
The url is a real one, of an online radio.
result = system->createStream((char*)L"http://188.8.131.52:8000/fresh.ogg", FMOD_DEFAULT | FMOD_UNICODE , 0, &_soundHandle);
Am I doing something wrong?

URLs are limited to a specific subset of the US-ASCII character set. Passing in a Unicode string when a URL is expected makes no sense. So, FMOD appears to be doing the correct thing by rejecting the string, although a more explicit error message would be helpful (like invalid parameters).

Well.. they’re slowly introducing unicode hostnames.. With all the confusion that can make. So that means that URLs will probably have to be unicode as well, at least the address part.

Well it makes no sence to me to reject an url because it is unicode.
The point is that in my app i use unicode strings as i want to be able to load all posible filenames, and ofcourse i do not make a difference if it is a filename or url(same as in fmod). But then i came into this problem and now i have to check if the filename begins with http or https(which as i understood fmod does too) and if so cast it to non-unicode string and pass it to fmod.
Its no big deal, but i still dont thing what fmod does is the correct behavior. And ofcourse you can put that as a remark in the documentation if you like.
