    Windows Unicode support · fa3cac51
    Henrik Gramner authored
    Windows, unlike most other operating systems, uses UTF-16 for Unicode strings while x264 is designed for UTF-8.
    
    This patch does the following in order to handle things like Unicode filenames:
    * Keep strings internally as UTF-8.
    * Retrieve the CLI command line as UTF-16 and convert it to UTF-8.
    * Always use Unicode versions of Windows API functions and convert strings to UTF-16 when calling them.
    * Attempt to use legacy 8.3 short filenames for external libraries without Unicode support.
