I tried your patch as I'd need it for ISO_8859-2.

What VDR version are you using? It doesmn't work for several 1.3.x
versions because of the following:

this has changed at some version to

const char *f = I18nCharSets()[Setup.OSDLanguage];

But neveretheless, even if it now compiles with the latest VDR, the
plugin crashes when it starts rendering the text into the DVD menu
images. At least on my not-yet-UTF-8 ready system Is this a requirement,
to get my system UTF-8 compliant? Does VDR also need its own UTF-8 patch
(Alexander Riedel posted the last version 0.0.3b with Freetype2 for
vdr-1.3.27 on 2005.07.23, maybe I should also try to make this one work
with current VDR)? So, Oleg, how did you make it work?
