    .torrent files are just files that point a bittorent client somewhere to download data. They don't actually contain any other information. There's no audio data to convert. You'd have to open the torrent file in a bittorent client and let the client download the file from there.

    That's not what a torrent file is. Think of it more like locater that you run using a special piece of software that locates copies of the actual file that you want to download.

    So, it's not like a zip file or an audio file you can convert, or anything like that. It's just a little file that goes and finds the files you need across all the various other connections using that same torrent file as a connection point.

    Please note, that Unforumzed recommends you use them for legal purposes as opposed to illegal ones.

    When its done downloading (at least on my mac) there is a little magnifying glass icon next to the file listing in utorrent. If you click on it, it should reveal where the file is on your computer. Then open that file w/ itunes.
