Unicode issues with podcast titles #195
For some reason, unexpected unicode characters are sometimes inserted at beginning of podcast titles.

Observe no unexpected characters at start of each title.

This could be me but I get this issue if I view on Chrome but not in Edge or Firefox. I think it relates to Parser.pm in the Podcast Plugin
Which I think attempts to track progress "if $client && !$client->display->isa('Slim::Display::NoDisplay');" If I comment these lines out, chrome doesn't show the strange characters.
( I think it's trying to do something like draw a number of boxes, either filled in or not depending on position retrieved from the cache?)
Progress is then prepended to the podcast title in Line 127
So guessing that Chrome either somehow passes "if $client && !$client->display->isa('Slim::Display::NoDisplay');" or displays the progress characters and other browsers don't?
Hi @mherger. I see the strange characters on Windows 10 in Chrome Version 64.0.3282.186 (Official Build) (64-bit)
But not in MS Edge Microsoft Edge 41.16299.248.0 or Firefox 58.0.2 (64-bit), also on Win10.
FWIW I did add some simple debug to display length and value of $progress - in the log all browsers show length as 14 but for me only chrome shows the 14 boxes in the log. So it's populated but not displayed in Edge and Firefox?
Hope this helps.
