The Metadata object's constructor requires an lcompilation_artist argument that is not being passed in metaiomp4.cpp.
Metadata constructor:
    Metadata(QString lfilename = "", QString lartist = "", QString lcompilation_artist = "",
             QString lalbum = "", QString ltitle = "", QString lgenre = "",
             int lyear = 0, int ltracknum = 0, int llength = 0, int lid = 0,
             int lrating = 0, int lplaycount = 0, QString llastplay = "",
             bool lcompilation = false)

Code in metaiomp4.cpp:
    Metadata *retdata = new Metadata(filename,

The error is coming from the attempt to use year as the lgenre argument.

Unfortunately, I'm not the person to fix it, as I don't really have a clue as to what it is actually doing.
