RTMP is broken by design. We did the best we can to make an interface that
will work uniformly across all applications without requiring each application
to be updated with new option flags whenever the underlying library is
extended. Since new security mechanisms seem to pop up every few weeks, the
maintenance overhead would be unacceptable any other way.
For context, read
The current approach works unambiguously precisely because spaces are not
allowed inside of URLs - that means the librtmp options can never be confused
with the RTMP URL options.
