What am I missing here? The file is VTS_02_2.VOB. It contains all the 
metadata that a VOB usually contains.

It contains one pack per sector. The packs are aggregated into GOPs with 
I-frames and P-frames and B-frames. Each frame has a PES & MPEG2 
sequence header and all the metadata. I can see them with VOBEdit.

Why can't I list the metadata with ffmpeg?

Can ffmpeg list metadata?
