I don't know what the windows installer installs - but your problem
reminds me of an AtomicParsley problem I had in April - sporadic
crashes during mp4 tagging.

Doing a "AtomicParsley -version" shows me

This version - which I compiled under a recent Cygwin works fine for
me - no crashes - after I contacted the developers about a Cygwin bug.
I've included it as an attachment - but you may need some Cygwin DLLs
to run it.

Other versions such as jonhedgerows do not work all the time:

Could be a character encoding problem.

I have a very customised install of get_iplayer with a wide character
solution - which I'll publish as soon as my dev. machine is repaired
