it should, but i think its not very well tested. there are lots of
youtube scripts and bugs with https mplayer...

heres one https://symlink.me/issues/1372

heres our bug
and this message is what you get when ffmpeg isnt compiled with gnutls
Playing ffmpeg://https://chris.ill-logic.com/videos/rocksteady.mp4.
 libavformat version 55.30.100 (internal)
 https protocol not found, recompile with openssl or gnutls enabled.

so this is a highly requested feature and hopefully can get in soon.

can find https samples on our samples repo (i think recently
activated) or libav repo.
