I am using the following defun on Microsoft Windows XP to get the
title of the file Winamp is currently playing.  I found by trial and
error that cp437 works for me.  :)

(defun winamp ()
  "Print what winamp is playing."
  (let* ((coding-system-for-read 'cp437)
         (str (shell-command-to-string "c:/WINDOWS/system32/tasklist.exe /v")))
    (when (string-match "^studio.exe.*?[0-9]+\\. \\(.*?\\)[ 
\t]*\\((playing)\\)?[ \t]*$" str)
      (match-string 1 str))))

When playing the Icelanding piece "Hún Jörð" however, this is decoded
as "Hún JörÐ".  Perhaps there is a tiny bug in cp437?
