Since about last week, dailymotion gives rtmpe:// links instead of HTTP
links, but rtmpdump seems unable to handle them.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Get a dailymotion page, and grep for the URL:
curl -s http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xnqokq_nisemonogatari-ep01-remplacement_shortfilms | grep 'addVariable.*hqURL' > hqurl

2. Edit hqurl, keep only the part between hqURL and hd720URL, unescape. The
reslut looks like that:

3. Get the file, it is a simple text file holding an URL:
curl http://www.dailymotion.com/cdn/H264-848x480/video/xnqokq.mp4[...]

4. Use rtmpdump:
rtmpdump -o blah.mp4 -r rtmpe://vod-02...

And blah.mp4 is empty.

Any idea on how to fix that?
