If you use a barcode scanner you can have some troubles while reading the generated QR codes. Depending on the encoding you chose you will have an extra amount of data corresponding to the ECI block. Some barcode scanner is not programmed to interpret this block of information. For example the ECI block for UTF-8Β isΒ 000026 so the above example will produce :Β \000026Life is too short to be generating QR codes. To ensure maximum compatibility you can use the ISO-8859-1 the encoding that is the default encoding used by barcode scanners.
