Comment (by zavisko):

 I have added the screen shot of ffmpeg -i test1.avi (ffmpeg_i_test1.jpg)

 If you mean AVI structure specification I did not found anything about
 INFO tag position. From all documents I've read I think it does not matter
 where the INFO tag is. This is only my assumption as I'm not an expert :)
 To add: All tags are displayed correctly in windows (in explorer or in
 mediaplayer) also linux tool "mediainfo" is displaying those metatags
 correctly. On the other side ffmpeg (ffprobe) and libextractor does not
 work this way.

 PS: I forgot to mention that I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) and I have
 tried the official ubuntu precompiled package (ffmpeg 0.5.1) and also
 tried the latest release (ffmpeg 0.10.2) - precompiled for debian,
 downloaded from www.debian-multimedia.org
