Video Transcoder FFMPEG Won't Install

Upon attempting to download certain youtube video/audio, I am presented with the following dialog:
Slimjet Video Transcoder Not Installed Dialog.jpg
When I click "Yes", the following download dialog appears:
Slimjet Video Transcoder Download Dialog.jpg
When the download is complete, I get the following dialog telling me that "ffmpeg" failed to install:
Slimjet Failed To Install FFMPEG! Dialog.jpg
I have attempted to manually download ffmpeg and place it's binary files in every conceiveable location in the Slimjet Program folder, to no avail. I have also fruitlessly searched Google high & low for other users who've encountered this problem.

I am running Slimjet on Windows XP SP3.

Come on - it's been 2 weeks and zero reply? Guess it's time to move on from this undersupported browser. Oh well.

Slimjet uses Chrome can't force SJ to do anything by placing files in has to be installed via an extension.

Using Slimjet go here and click the "Install in Chrome" button and see if it will do may not work if using an old version of SJ. ... mfdhgcjkih

This is a user discussion forum. If Flashpeak provided on demand support we would be paying for it.

I would try mashing the Alt key before starting the download to avoid using the turbocharged download.

Its actually some other issue (not ffmpeg); Slimjet's error message message is "Video Transcoder Not Installed"

ffmpeg is installed on my system:

If Slimjet doesn't have the staff to fix an annoying problem with a desirable 'Up front feature' that at has a complaint history spanning at least 3 years perhaps its time for Slimjet to remove the offer of this nonworking feature.
