Atomicparsley gives "Exec format error" - not tagging m4a file
Hi, I'm having problems with tagging the downloaded m4a.

Looks like an error with atomicparsley. The file isn't tagged after the normal download process, I've also tried the `--tag-only` option, but that doesn't work either.

Any help with troubleshooting would be appreciated.

get_iplayer Output:

A few suggestions:

You might want to read this first:

Upgrade to the latest version of get-iplayer (you're one release behind, but I don't think this is your problem)

$ AtomicParsley --version
If I recall correctly then you need at least version 0.9.6.

Does running AtomicParsley by hand on that file work?

Is the file corrupted in some way?

I downloaded that programme with --no-tag, and then tagged it successfully using the command line you provided. So I don't think there's anything wrong with get-iplayer itself here.

Just to set expectations... I'm away for a few days and probably won't be able to follow up until at least Friday - but others might be able to help.

Thanks for quick response.

I've tried with both 3.23 and 3.24 and get the same. I'm sticking with 3.23 at the moment as can't get high quality audio downloads with 3.24?

Trying `AtomicParsley --version` shows the problem....

bash-5.0# AtomicParsley --version
bash: /usr/local/bin/AtomicParsley: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

I'm running this in a docker container - [based on this example]( - so there must be an issue with the AtomicParsley install rather than any problem with `get_iplayer`.
