Can I use libtorrent with python in xbmc?
#1
See the requirements for building and using libtorrent binding for python:

I don't want to start using this library, and then find out its not possible to implement with python in xbmc. So can xbmc handle it?

Why not just use whatever library torrentX or TorrentBrowser is/was using? See:
http://www.xbmcscripts.com/index.php?opt...owser v3.0
and

Because torrentX and TorrentBrowser download the .torrent file and do not transfer files with the bittorrent protocol, therefore they don't use a bittorrent protocol implementation library. I've already looked for a python script that implements bittorrent, only one I found was "bitxbox". Unfortunately, the authors don't respond to their emails and all links to download it are dead. If you know of one, let me know. Smile

think it should work, just try and make a simple testclient.
