You should provide the actual command line you tried, along with its
complete, uncut console output.

ffmpeg successfully maps the "keywords" metadata field to the "keyw"

$ ffmpeg -f lavfi -i testsrc=d=1 -metadata 'keywords=bla, foo' ~/tmp/test.mp4
$ AtomicParsley ~/tmp/test.mp4 -t 
Atom "©too" contains: Lavf58.5.100
Atom "keyw" contains: bla, foo

Is this what you tried? Is this not the expected result? (This keyw
atom is a subatom of udta->ilst.)
