[FFmpeg-user] Retrieve Specific Format Tag section e.g comments as String Ouput

I would like to retrieve a specific tag section e.g the comments metadata.
I have a huge text exceeding 255, which would get cut-off when reading
ordinary metadata fields.

However, it does not get cut-off in the tag section of the format. Hence, I
would like to be able to just fetch this one field as a string output.

Is there a way to do this via ffprobe or ffmpeg?
