Wrong format text on request API

Hey, everybody,

I’m creating a discord bot in java.
When I make a query about,
https://api.twitch.tv/helix/streams?user_login=my_user

I get:
[{
“tag_ids”: […]
“user_id”: “…”,
“user_name”: “…”,
“started_at”: “2020-05-10T15:18:44Z”,
“language”: “fr”,
“id”: “…”,
“viewer_count”: 1,
“type”: “live”,
“title”: “ON S’AMELIORE SUR VALORANT !! #FЙDS BartTV #DROPS ACTIFS\n”,
“thumbnail_url”: “https://static-cdn.jtvnw.net/previews-ttv/live_user_french_barttv-{width}x{height}.jpg”,
“game_id”: “516575”
}]

Now, with Postman I get:

[{
“id”: “…”,
“user_id”: “…”,
“user_name”: “…”,
“game_id”: “516575”,
“type”: “live”,
“title”: “ON S’AMELIORE SUR VALORANT !! #FЙDS BartTV #DROPS ACTIFS\n”,
“viewer_count”: 1,
“started_at”: “2020-05-10T15:18:44Z”,
“language”: “fr”,
“thumbnail_url”: “…”,
“tag_ids”: […]

This is my code :

URL obj = new URL(url_api_twitch_stream + user_name[i]);
HttpURLConnection con = (HttpURLConnection) obj.openConnection();

con.setRequestMethod(“GET”);

con.setRequestProperty(“Client-ID”, “my-id”);
con.setRequestProperty(“Accept”, “application/vnd.twitchtv.v5+json”);

int responseCode = con.getResponseCode();

BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(con.getInputStream()));
String inputLine;
StringBuffer response = new StringBuffer();
while ((inputLine = in.readLine()) != null) {
response.append(inputLine);
}
in.close();

JSONObject myResponse = new JSONObject(response.toString());

String response_to_string = myResponse.getJSONArray(“data”).toString();

String[] my_data_split = response_to_string.split(","");

String stream_title = my_data_split[searchInArrayString(my_data_split, “title”)];
stream_title = stream_title.substring(8, stream_title.length() - 3);

How can I get the right result either: “FЙDS” and not FЙDS

Looks like your java code is not processing the response as UTF-8 and is converting it to another character type.

Okay, I’ll look into it, but I’ve already tried to break into UTF-8, but I didn’t succeed.
I’ll keep looking
Thanks.
