sammy_torrent Posted October 3, 2012 Report Share Posted October 3, 2012 I have recently been receiving the error "torrent is not valid bencoding!" when trying to open several different torrent links from the mnova.eu site. A search of this board shows that in some cases this error has been caused because the link is not to an actual torrent file. In my case I have downloaded the .torrent file and opened it in a text editor, and it appears to be in the right format. In addition, when I click on the "use magnet" instead, the file then properly opens in BitTorrent. An example torrent file can be found on the following page: http://www.mnova.eu/torrent/5366753/working_tracker_list_june_2012.html When I click on the "torrent" download I get the "bencoding" error in BitTorrent.when viewed in a text editor the .torrent file looks like this:d13:announce-listldi0e0:el23:udp://tracker.ccc.de:80el28:udp://tracker.istole.it:6969el35:udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80el29:udp://tracker.publicbt.com:80ee7:comment19:http://www.mnova.eueI have also attached the downloaded .torrent file for your review.When I click on the "use magnet" link it opens properly in bitTorrent and downloads.I am using BitTorrent 7.7 build 27949 [32-bit]Any help would be greatly appreciated.thanksSam Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
