Notepad++ does not detect encoding automatically when opening a file
I have Kodi on my PC and exported the movie library to .NFO file(text file) which contains movie’s information. When I open the NFO file using Notepad++, some contents with foreign language are always showing funny characters. I have to manually choose UTF8 from Notepad++ menu to make them showing correctly. I wish the developer can fix the problem. There is no such problem If I use notepad2 to open the files.
untick Autodetect character encoding
This should do the trick.

Nope, it does not work
I filed a bug report for this last year because I also had issues with XBMC. Go upvote it and maybe devs will finally notice it.
Does the encoding default to “OEM-US” for you too?
