 Replying to [comment:42 mario66]:
 > So tell me again, how is this not a massive failure caused by largely
 misaligned incentives if such a simple fix is not applied? What is so
 difficult about it?

 You could try not being rude. You are not entitled to any developer's
 time. As for aligning incentives, see Illya's comment.

 Did you try explicitly telling ffmpeg to copy metadata using
 -map_metadata? Sometimes that may be necessary.
