Export as Movie produces corrupted files on WIndows

I've been trying to export a movie using the presentation tools in 1.2.7 on Windows 8.1. I'm able to open the MPG output in VLC media player, but the movie has large vertical stripes and blurry blocks. The top of the altitude bar is the only thing that is clear. The other formats options (AVi, Quicktime, WMV) produce output which won't open at all.

1.2.7 on Windows 8.1

Is 1.2.7 here a typo for 1.2.27? Do you know if this worked with older versions?

It looks to me like this might be down to a change in 1.2.27 to enable saving files to filenames with Unicode in. The file is not explicitly opened in binary mode, which could well cause such issues.

Apologies for the typo. The problem is in 1.2.27. I have not tried this using earlier versions.
