Miya, the order of output options does not matter, if they are all
place between the input and the output.

You could have tried your suggestion within 10 seconds[*] to see that
it doesn't help. ;-)


$ ffmpeg -f lavfi -i sine -metadata artist="Jody Marie Gnant" -t 2 -c:a mp2 -b:a 320k test.mp2
$ ffprobe test.mp2
$ ffmpeg -f lavfi -i sine -t 2 -c:a mp2 -b:a 320k -metadata artist="Jody Marie Gnant" test.mp2
$ ffprobe test.mp2
