Chinese characters showing as SQUARE in Plex Media Centre

Started to play around with Plex Media Centre for OSX on my Mac Mini. I am very familiar with XBMC which was installed on my Xbox and provided my first encounter of what a dedicated media player can do for the family. I then moved on recently to AC Ryan PlayOn HD.

Now playing around with the Plex Media Centre. It is a version of XBMC modified for the Mac and is very suitable as a media player for the Mac Mini. I do intend to use my Mac Mini as my music player in the future (playing music files like MP3, APE, FLAC etc) instead of using it for video playback. But who knows.

iTunes in Plex

Anyway, installing it was quickly and very fast. Beautiful interface like XBMC and so I went to try out the music section and immediately (and should I just say, AS USUAL), my Chinese MP3 files in iTunes that is pulled into the Plex appears as SQUARE BOXES :)
