Description

It would be much better if transmission was supporting Korean lnaguage somemore.

As I said at the title, Trnasmission won't be able to open&start downloading torrent files with Korean language. This is the exact error message, " "xxxx.torrent" is not a valid torrent file. The torrent file cannot be opened because it contains invalid data."

I don't want such a Korean GUI. but I think it should be doing at least what have to do. you know what I mean, right?

hope it will be fixed someday and Sorry for poor English :)

The torrent file is invalid. Nothing we can do about that.

Well.. that's why I'm telling you.

Transmission says it's invalid although it is actually vaild. just because it has Korean characters Folder/Files?.

If we try opening it with utorrent for Mac, for example. It works just fine. because utorrent supports Korean characters.

The specs say all character string values are UTF-8 encoded. We will not be adding support for files that do not follow these specs.
