The problem is actually with MythWeb, not with mythrename.pl.  What 
happens if you put your mythrename.pl back to the way it was (so the 
files have umlauts in them) and apply the attached patch to your 
MythWeb?  The patch should apply to MythWeb 0.19 (with offsets) or to SVN.

To apply the patch, go into your MythWeb root directory (as a user who 
has write access to the files) and issue the command:

patch -Np1 -i ~/mythweb-urlencode_recorded_progs.patch

(assuming you stored the patch in your home directory--otherwise, fix 
the path to the patch).  If the fix works for you, please let me know 
and I'll submit a ticket to get it fixed.
