    Anyone figure it out yet.

    I wasn't aware u could run torrents on your iPad

    If you're looking for a mobile terminal substitute, score iSSH from the app store and ssh into 127.0.0.1

    Just download the file in Torrentula. Use ifile to go to the downloaded file, which happens to be in var/mobile/downloads.. put the extension .torrent on the end of the file. Go back to Torrentula, go to files, click on .torrent, it should pop up. Click on it, and it will ask if you want to download... Should install..

    No joy.

    File will not download. Keep getting tracking errors.

    Have tried different sites and torrents.

    Edit: Can't get it to work on iPhone either - so problem is not iPad specific.

    Problem must be related to the way the torrents are tracked by the sites.

    Anyone successfully download anything from torrent sites lately?

    Thanks for the tip - Demonoid is working great.

    Download was successful but just realized dvix is not supported on iPad.

    Probably best to use remote desktop to download files and then use airvideo to convert and play.

    A video converter on the iPad would be a nice app. Does the iPad have enough computing power to pull off video conversion?

    Vlc does play the video.
    It is slightly choppy though and not optimized for iPad.

    Thanks for all the help.
