With fear of delving even further into "things i have no idea about",
a "simple" workaround from a programming perspective would be a trial
error approach to parsing the URL, ie:

trial 1
-r rtmp://vod.daserste.de
-a ardfs
-y videoportal/mediathek/Fernsehfilme+im+Ersten/c_200000/209593/format246444.f4v

trial 2
-r rtmp://vod.daserste.de
-a ardfs/videoportal
-y mediathek/Fernsehfilme+im+Ersten/c_200000/209593/format246444.f4v


While this may be cringeworthy, it looks feasible
