Encoding of AVMetadataItem

I have a AVMetadataItem which has fields encoded in CP1251 (Cyrillic). After reading item.stringValue I get garbage - incorrectly encoded string.
I've tried converting that string to raw UTF8 and then creating a new string using the CP1251 encoding - no luck, result is nil. Tried taking the item.dataValue - no dice, it contains a raw list data (starting with bplist...).

Any ideas are very appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I've ended up using Mike Ash's NSPropertyListReader_binary1 and getting the raw data and then mangling it so that NSString would it it's encoding.

Horrible - but worked.
