Binary package hint: vlc

1) Ubuntu 9.04
2) vlc 0.9.9a-2ubuntu1

This is what happened: i opened the .avi file with the same name as .ass file, and subtitles loaded in wrong encoding, they where like "Ïîêà íåëüçÿ ïåðåâîðà÷èâàòü, ÿñíî?" and should be like "Пока нельзя переворачивать, ясно?", "Default encoding" option was properly set to cp1251.
          After what i did:

iconv -f cp1251 -t utf8 xxx.ass > yyy.ass
vlc yyy.avi

and it loaded properly, even thought i didn't change "default encodig" option. This suggests what in this case it just sets the utf8 encoding no matter what.
