AtomicParsley temp file sometimes left after download complete
#1
Have been using Windows 10 with get_iplayer 2.94 for a few weeks now. No problems downloading files, though there are sometimes 2 copies of the programme saved in the folder... Both complete. One is labelled as "temp-25683". Picture attached.

The temp file is created by AtomicParsley when adding metadata tags to the downloaded file. It may be left on disk if something goes wrong when copying it over the original file or if AP crashes before it is complete. One possible cause is if your output directory is on an a slow network drive. If that is case, use an output directory on a local disk and copy files to final location when download is complete.

Thanks, Dinky. The output folder is on the desktop, like I was using before. Still, this is a minor issue and I was merely curious.
