Hi all,

Feels a bit weird to be addressing everyone in the email list but if this
is how it's done I will get used to it :)

My issue with the latest build (as well as the 4.1.3) is that I cannot
stream to RTMPS, as per the new requirements of Facebook Live API. I know
it can be done with other software, but I would never have the flexibility
of FFMPEG :) Also because I use it together with youtube-dl.

I don't know if I'm missing something, since it works on my Mac. When I run
the same command on Powershell I get an error. Then I proceeded with using
a different command, something much simpler and I got the same
error message, so I thought maybe is a bug of ffmpeg builds for windows?

Sample command:
ffmpeg -i $(youtube-dl -f 300 -g https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ioi8gJsYwaI)
-acodec aac -vcodec libx264 -f flv rtmps://
