 Libraries are also executables. The difference is that library has many
 functions (API) that can be called and may not have main() function.

 Again, please write there
 https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1886901#post1886901 about what I
 told you
 and open the same issue here:
 because it is x265 that is pasting metadata. If you want this, x265 devs
 should do the backend of (encoder) pasting metadata and send patches to
 ffmpeg decoder.
