Encoding or decoding audioTrack.Artist

Thank you for this very beautifull project. But I have a question:

When playing a Dutch shoutcast-stream (World music) I get the following tracktitle:

Andy Harlow canta Johnny Vzquez - Ay Que Bueno

and this should be:

Andy Harlow canta Johnny Vázquez - Ay Que Bueno

Could you tell me if and where to change the encoding of the tracktitle. Thanks a lot.

Could you send me the link for the stream?  There was originally an issue with the encoding, but I thought I had fixed it.  The encoding is currently defaulting to UTF8, but if that doesn't work, then I should change it as a default.

If you want to build it yourself and debug the issue, the metadata is simply read out of the data stream in the ShoutcastStream.ReadOrPeekBuffer() method.  If you find a fix, please post back so I can merge it into the project.
