caspar client special character


Have been developping my own caspar web client.
Basically, it is sending commands to caspar over sockets in order to play flash templates with data.
The thing is I got an issue sending the character: +
Couldn't find a way to do that, casparcg server never receives the special character (but the rest of the data string), Should I do some specific encoding for this charater before sending it, for caspar to be able to receive it?
Looks like I'm missing something...

Your help would be appreciated!


Re: caspar client special character

The string you send must be encoded as UTF-8. And the font you use in your template must include the charater you want to display. Font embedding in Flash allows to say what charcters are embedded. Could be, that there something is missing. I always use "All characters".
