[FFmpeg-user] ffprobe does not render sdes tag field properly

Well, that would make a lot of sense. But, if I look at other fields, 
the encoding is again different.
For example, in the synopsis field:

My input:

After stealing the Tesseract in "Avengers: Endgame," Loki lands before 
the Time Variance Authority.

ffprobe output:

After stealing the Tesseract in \"Avengers: Endgame,\" Loki lands before 
the Time Variance Authority.

So the conversion of " is again different here. I switched from 
PowerShell to a Linux bash terminal
to see if it makes any difference, and it does! The "sdes" field is now 
correct, but the "synopsis" field is still as shown above (as it was 
already before switching to a different terminal.)

That would mean in conclusion that my Terminal might not by responsible 
for the encoding issue, at least not completely ...

Thanks in advance,
