[FFmpeg-user] appending an HTTP session ID to HLS stream

Is there an option to provide a session ID with FFmpeg when streaming an
HLS playlist?

Command I am using to stream (info redacted):

*ffmpeg -re -i https://<URL HERE>/<PLAYLIST>.m3u8\?session\=<SESSION KEY
HERE> output_file.mp4*

Based on the output that I'm getting back, ffmpeg is just attempting to
load the ts file, without passing on the session ID:

*Error when loading first segment 'https://<URL>/<STRUCTURE>/<HERE>/<TS

Any ideas? Or am I all out of luck?
