Can't add torrents from

Issue #49 invalid
Anonymous created an issue

If I try to add a torrent from I get this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/home/alexandre/environments/django/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/transmissionrpc/", line 457, in add_uri
    return self.add(torrent_data, **kwargs)
  File "/home/alexandre/environments/django/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/transmissionrpc/", line 427, in add
    return self._request('torrent-add', args, timeout=timeout)
  File "/home/alexandre/environments/django/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/transmissionrpc/", line 262, in _request
    raise TransmissionError('Query failed with result \"%s\".' % (data['result']))
transmissionrpc.error.TransmissionError: Query failed with result "invalid or corrupt torrent file".

This error only happens if I try to add using transmissionrpc.

Other torrent files are ok using both transmissionrpc and the web client.

    The error message comes from Transmission, Transmission doesn't think it got a torrent file. If you have a link to an open/legal torrent with the same issue please reopen this issue.
